Motorola WS5100 Wireless Switch

With the WS5100, medium to large enterprises can reap the benefits of wireless voice, data and multimedia while simplifying and reducing the cost of mobility. Comprehensive functionality enables the wireless enterprise, delivering the high performance, resiliency, security and scalability required to support converged applications that will streamline your operations. Motorola’s Wireless Next Generation (Wi-NG) architecture provides robust Wi-Fi wireless networking, Adaptive AP technology, rich locationing services, high data rate connectivity through 802.11n with Mesh support, comprehensive layered security, centralized management and more.

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- rate limiting and MU-load balancing provide granular control and management of bandwidth at the mobile device level
