Motorola RFS6000 Wireless RF Switch

The RFS6000 delivers on the promise of the wireless enterprise, providing the performance, security, resiliency and scalability required to support medium to large companies. Streamline your operations through the delivery of carrier-grade mobile voice and data inside and outside the enterprise walls.

And reduce the cost of mobility through a powerful, comprehensive feature set that includes Motorola's Wireless Next Generation (Wi-NG) architecture, Wi-Fi and RFID; Adaptive AP technology, 3G/4G wireless broadband backhaul, rich locationing services, high data rate connectivity through 802.11n with Mesh support, comprehensive layered security, centralized management and many Motorola-unique mobility features.

Wi-NG — Motorola's Wireless Next Generation architecture
Enables seamless campus-wide roaming, more robust failover capabilities, enhanced security, improved mobile client battery life and increased voice capacity

Unified wireless voice and RF management platform
Improve business process flow with one platform for wireless voice, data and multiple RF technologies on a single switch — such as RFID and Wi-Fi (including 802.11n and Wi-MAX)

Adaptive AP: Extending the Enterprise
Enables centralized management of mesh access points at remote sites as well as site survivability of those remote locations.

Centralized multicore/multithreaded architecture
Provides security and high performance for bandwidth-heavy applications, while centralized management lowers the overall cost of network deployment and administration.

Comprehensive layered security

Exceptional level of data and network protection without sacrificing fast roaming, including: WPA2-CCMP (with 802.11i fast roaming options), integrated RADIUS Server, IPSec VPN Gateway, Secure Guest Access Provisioning and advanced wireless intrusion detection

L2 and L3 roaming
Seamless roaming of mobile clients even across complex distributed networks

Real Time Locationing System (RTLS)

Provides rich locationing services to enable real-time enterprise asset-tracking through support for 802.11, RFID and third party locationing solutions — including industry leaders AeroScout, Ekahau, and Newbury Networks. Standards-based support for EPC Global ALE interface for processing and filtering data from all active and passive tags; and EPC Global LLRP interface for passive RFID tag support

Clustering and load balancing

Ensures an “always-on” highly available network for superior performance, while supporting multiple levels of redundancy and failover capabilities.

True mobility
Virtual AP provides better control of broadcast traffic and enables multiple mobile and wireless applications with quality of service when network is congested; Pre-emptive Roaming ensures Motorola mobile devices roam before signal quality degrades; Power Save Protocol optimizes battery life; Self-healing provides continuous network coverage in the event of loss or disruption of RF coverage

Quality of Service (QoS)
Enhances voice and video capabilities; prioritizes network traffic to minimize latency and provide optimal responsiveness to all users; Wi-Fi Multimedia Extensions (WMM-Power Save with Admission Control) enhances multimedia application support and improves battery life and capacity; and MU-ratelimiting and MU-load balancing provide granular control and management of bandwidth at the mobile device level.
