Linksys WAP4400N Wireless-N Access Point

With the growth in high bandwidth applications, such as storage and video in the work place, network performance is essential. Wireless technology is no longer lagging behind wired performance. The introduction of the Linksys Business Series WAP4400N wireless Access Point answers the growing business' need for access, speed and security.

The Access Point uses the very latest wireless networking technology, Wireless-N (draft 802.11n). By overlaying the signals of multiple radios, Wireless-N's “Multiple In, Multiple Out” (MIMO) technology multiplies the effective data rate. Unlike ordinary wireless networking technologies that are confused by signal reflections, MIMO actually uses these reflections to increase the range and reduce “dead spots” in the wireless coverage area.

The Linksys Wireless-N Access Point lets you connect Wireless-N (802.11n), Wireless-G (802.11g) or Wireless-B (802.11b) devices to your wired network so you can add PCs to the network with no cabling hassle. Power over Ethernet support makes it easy to install -- you can mount the Access Point anywhere, even without ready access to a power plug. With appropriate Power Over Ethernet support at the other end, you only need to run one cable to the Access Point to deliver both data and power. Of course, you can also use the included AC adapter if your installation point has power available nearby.

Moreover, the integrated QoS features provide consistent voice and video quality on both the wired and wireless networks, enabling the deployment of business qualilty VoIP and video applications.

To protect your data and privacy, the Linksys Wireless-N Access Point supports both Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and the industrial-strength wireless security of Wi-Fi Protected Access™ (WPA), encoding all your wireless transmissions with powerful encryption. The MAC Address filter lets you decide exactly who has access to your wireless network, and advanced logging keeps you appraised. Configuration is a snap with the web browser-based configuration utility.

The Linksys Wireless-N Access Point with Power Over Ethernet is the best way to add wireless access to your existing business network.

* Complies with IEEE draft 802.11n standards while at the same time being backwards compatible with 802.11b and g devices
* Standards-based POE (IEEE 802.3af) or External DC power
* MIMO technology uses multiple radios to create a robust signal that travels farther and reduces dead spots
* Support for WMM provides improved QoS over wireless connections for better video and voice performance
