Allied Telesyn, the global IP networking solutions vendor, today announced
the launch of its new AT-WA7400 enterprise-class wireless LAN access point.
The AT-WA7400 accommodates radios operating within both 2.4GHz and 5GHz IEEE
802.11 frequency bands. It complements Allied Telesyn's broad wireless LAN and
networking solutions and offers latest security features, advanced management
tools and superior performance with single 802.11g and dual 802.11a+g radio
configurations. The AT-WA7400 also offers Power over Ethernet (POE), Virtual
LANs (VLANs), Multiple SSIDs, Wireless Distribution System (WDS), Quality of
Service (QoS), Load Balancing and AP Clustering features.
The Multiple BSSID (basic service set ID) is the MAC address of the access
point. The BSSID field in a beacon allows the mobile units to distinguish
between different access points. Enabling granular segmentation of the wireless
LAN into multiple broadcast domains to meet specific enterprise needs, the
Multiple BSSID support provides wireless system administrators with both an easy
solution to the mix-and-match security methods in use today and a powerful tool
for creating multiple classes of clients with a single access point.
"The flexible architecture creates a way for organizations to migrate
not only from legacy 802.11b technology to higher performance 54Mbps
802.11g-based networks at affordable cost, but also gives them a path to utilize
802.11a technology without changing their hardware," said Jason Phoon,
Allied Telesyn's Senior Manager for Product Marketing in Asia Pacific.
Combined with its extensive line of Layer 2 and Layer 3 Switches, Allied Telesyn
provides a wide range of complete solutions for the small, medium and large
