Intelligent Networking Features for a Scalable, Secure Solution
NETGEAR's ProSafe 802.11g Wireless Access Point WGL102 delivers the secure, reliable, high-performance wireless local area networks (WLANs) today's mobile workforce demands. This powerful device provides the industry-standard access to corporate network resources, as a managed wireless access point with the NETGEAR ProSafe Smart Wireless Controller. Fully compatible with IEEE 802.11g (2.4 GHz) integrated IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE), the WGL102 brings standards-based, enterprise-level functionality at a mid-market price.

Managed and configured by the NETGEAR ProSafe Smart Wireless Controller (WFS709TP), the WGL102 is a "light" access point that implements the 802.11 standard. As part of the centralized architecture, much of the security configuration such as WPA2-Enterprise (802.11i), WPA2 and 802.1x support happens at the NETGEAR ProSafe WFS709TP. The NETGEAR ProSafe Smart Wireless Controller also supports MAC address authentication, support for multiple BSSID/VLANs and guest/contractor access.

The WGL102 supports IntelliFi RF management technology in conjunction with the NETGEAR ProSafe Smart Wireless Controller. The ProSafe Smart Wireless Controller supports dynamic power level settings and adjustable radio management features.

As part of the NETGEAR ProSafe Smart Wireless Solution, the WGL102 is cost-effective, compact, and simple to install and use. Integrated PoE support expands installation options by eliminating the need to locate near a power outlet. It is plenum rated for appropriate placement above drop-down ceilings and under raised floors. Fitted with one powerful detachable 5 dBi antenna and compatible with NETGEAR's ProSafe 2.4 GHz antennas for expanded wireless capacity and range, the WGL102 is protected with a NETGEAR Lifetime Warranty.
