802.11N ACCESS POINT

WIRELESS NETWORKS FOR CUSTOMER-FACING SPACES.

SLEEK DESIGN DELIVERS NEXT GENERATION HIGH PERFORMANCE WI-FI IN YOUR MOST DESIGN-CONSCIOUS ENVIRONMENTS
Retail stores, hotels, hospitals and schools all have one thing in common: they all need to provide wireless connections not only for their own workers, but also to the customers, patients and students they serve — and performance expectations are at an all time high.

Now, with Symbol's AP 8122 access point, you can deliver dependable speeds to virtually any number of mobile devices running the most demanding applications. With its sleek housing, understated design and internal antennas, the AP 8122 blends right into your indoor environment — including the most fashionable high-end retail store. The next generation 802.11n radios empowers your network with reliable Wi-Fi for every mobile device in use in your operation today. And with our high-powered radios, you’ll need fewer access points. The result? A new level of capacity and performance for your wireless LAN — all at a lower cost.

OPTIMIZING THE USER EXPERIENCE

WiFi users with tablets, smartphones and mobile computers logged onto your corporate and guest access networks can get fast speeds and highly robust connections for the best experience possible. The AP 8122 is a 3-spatial stream access point with two radios, delivering data rates of up to 450 Mbps per radio over WING 5 architecture. Whether you’re using voice, data, or bandwidth-intensive applications like HD video, you can be confident your network can handle the traffic and provide the optimum user experience.

STRENGTHENING THE CONNECTION

Advanced 802.11n features such as Space Time Block Coding (STBC) and beamforming provide improved connectivity. STBC uses redundant data streams to increase successful transmissions; it also helps improve signal robustness even with the single antennas of smartphones, tablets and other size-constrained client devices. Beamforming attempts to map the characteristics of the RF channel and compensate for interference by modulating the signals such that the intended receiver experiences an improved signal-to-noise ratio compared to a standard transmission.

VOICE, LOCATIONING AND GUEST ACCESS

The AP 8122 supports voice over wireless LAN (VoWLAN) quality of service (QoS), ensuring toll-quality even with many simultaneous calls on a single access point. Leveraging locationing services over 802.11, the AP 8122 gives you the ability to locate and track people or assets, and even to control access to the network or applications. In addition, it’s easy to provide hotspot and guest access and assure that users can only access authorized networks, sites or applications.

ENHANCING SECURITY AND COMPLIANCE

The AP 8122 provides the gap-free security you need to secure all your wireless transmissions, and to enable you to be in compliance with government and industry regulations such as HIPAA in healthcare and PCI in retail. Our comprehensive integrated network security features include: layer 2-7 stateful packet filtering firewall, AAA RADIUS services, wireless intrusion protection system (IPS), VPN gateway and location-based access control. You can also add role-based access control and AirDefense Wireless IPS and Rogue detection for premium-level security vigilance.

THIRD GENERATION PERFORMANCE AND SCALABILITY

Our integrated WiNG 5 WLAN operating system offers unmatched WLAN performance, scalability and flexibility. In this third generation WLAN architecture, all access points and controllers are network aware, able to collectively determine the most efficient route for wireless traffic, as well as enforce QoS and security policies. The result is a new level of wireless service quality and reliability for all your users.
