Motorola AP300 – More Functionality for a Fraction of the Cost of Access Points
The Motorola AP300 has been discontinued, please call TPI 888-488-4244 for direct replacement information.
Access Ports are a key component of Motorola Technologies’ award winning Wireless Switch System, the second-generation wireless LAN architecture that does more, yet costs less. Working in conjunction with Motorola’s Wireless Switch 2000, the Motorola AP300 Access Port delivers robust and feature rich IEEE 802.11a/b/g connectivity. Access Ports substantially reduce the cost of deploying, implementing and managing a wireless LAN, while significantly increasing features, functionality and security of the wireless LAN infrastructure.
Virtual AP Enables True RF Virtual LANs (VLANs) for Better Device and Network Performance
With Virtual AP, each Access Port can support four separate wireless broadcast domains–functionality that would otherwise require the installation of four first-generation access points. These true wireless VLANs enable separation of mobile end-users, ensuring that broadcast traffic reaches only those recipients for which it is intended. Overall network traffic is reduced, network and device performance is improved, and device battery life is increased–at a fraction of the cost required to deliver the same functionality in a first generation access point-based network.
Each Motorola AP300 supports four BSSIDs (Basic Service Set Identifiers) and 16 ESSIDs (Extended Service Set Identifiers) per radio, enabling granular segmentation of the wireless LAN into multiple broadcast domains to meet specific enterprise needs. Typical access points support only one BSSID, utilizing ESSIDs (instead of BSSIDs) to create wireless VLANs.
Dual-radio 802.11a and 802.11g Design
Simultaneous service to 802.11a, 802.11b and 802.11g mobile devices provides high-bandwidth wireless connectivity at speeds of up to 54 Mbps in both the 2.4 GHz and 5.2 GHz ISM bands.
Thin AP Design
The Motorola AP300, as all other Symbol Access Ports, requires no configuration or manual firmware maintenance. The Symbol Wireless Switch discovers Access Ports on the network and automatically downloads all configuration parameters and firmware. Installation, maintenance and troubleshooting costs are greatly reduced.
