Linksys moves on enterprise wireless market

New Business Wireless-N access points will use 802.11n wireless technology

Networking vendor Linksys is expanding into enterprise wireless networking with the launch of the first of its business grade wireless access points.

The two new Linksys Wireless-N access points will allow businesses to deploy a fast, highly secure and reliable wireless network or upgrade an existing wireless infrastructure, according to a company statement.

The Linksys Wireless-N Access Points can be deployed as a Wi-Fi access point or a range extender to connect notebooks, smartphones, tablets, and other Wi-Fi devices to the network and the internet.

The Business Wireless-N Access Points use the widely adopted 802.11n standard to provide a fast and highly reliable wireless network. It supports advanced features such as Power over Ethernet for flexible placement, plus rogue AP detection and a 802.11X supplicant for enhanced security.

Belkin A/NZ managing director, Ian McLean, said Wi-Fi was the lynch pin of the work environment, and the conduit to many business-critical tools taken for granted in our daily work lives.

“Across industries it is vital for real-time information and connectivity, making reliable solutions paramount to ensuring everything always runs smoothly,” he said.

“Linksys Business delivers these solutions and is committed to being a trusted business partner for the Australian and New Zealand corporate community.”
