AP 8432 Series Firmware
NEW WIRELESS TECHNOLOGY WITH IOT EXTENSION
MULTIPLY NETWORK CAPACITY WITH 802.11AC WAV2
The rapid growth and wide diversity of mobile wireless devices creates new opportunities to enable an all-wireless enterprise, connect with customers and shoppers, and improve productivity for a responsive distribution network. 802.11AC brings new capacity multipliers to an enterprise network. With 802.11AC, network capacity is multiplied up to 8x over the previous generation of wireless LAN technology by adding capacity multipliers that operate on multiple layers - from higher MCS rates, to wider channel width, to support for multiple client devices simultaneously. The AP-8432 802.11AC delivers astounding new network speed and capacity.
NEW SERVICES AND EXTENDED IOT NETWORKS
Every enterprise network requires more from their wireless investment than just speed: new services, new productivity, and comprehensive security. The Zebra 8432 integrates seamlessly with an existing or new Zebra WiNG 5 based network management system, with the Zebra NSight Console for deeper network analytics, and with the Zebra AirDefense Security appliance for forensic security analysis.
The Zebra 8432 includes a built-in PoE out port to connect any third party device that can operate with Ethernet and PoE. The Internet of Things (IOT) has generated a diverse set of use cases and technologies. For example; IP cameras are used for people counting, small environmental nodes measure and report temperature, humidity, barometric pressure, and ambient light, while proximity detectors report the location of people within a defined space. Any of these IOT networks can be connected to the secondary Ethernet port and receive power and IP connectivity. For advanced management of the IOT network, the AP 8432 can treat each port as a Layer-2 or Layer-3 interface, providing router services to the IOT network, IP firewalls, and multiple packet forwarding modes.
