WLAN Access Points - Funkwerk

New wireless LAN access points from Funkwerk

Funkwerk Enterprise Communications
May 17, 2006

Single or dual wireless modules for professional WLANs and hot spots

Funkwerk Enterprise Communications (FEC) has added two new professional access points to its range of WLAN products. The funkwerk W1002 with one wireless module and funkwerk W2002 with two wireless modules support all current transmission and security standards and are designed for demanding WLAN applications. These include covering complex building structures, bridging between buildings, operating hot spots or interference-free transmission of video and audio signals for time-critical applications.

The new devices support 802.11b, g, and a in the 2.4 GHz spectrum with up to 54 Mbps data throughput, as well as the European standard 802.11h in the 5 GHz range. This particularly facilitates bridge solutions outdoors between buildings if the normal 2.4 GHz channels are occupied.

The funkwerk W2002 with two wireless modules can work in both frequency ranges simultaneously. For example, individual hot spots in the 2.4 GHz range can be connected with several devices via 5 GHz bridges. Both models also have two antennas per wireless module to optimise the range and coverage.

For implementing hot spots or guest access points with different authorisations, both devices support Multi-SSID and VLAN. Up to 16 virtual access points per wireless module can be supported, which are mutually access protected. Both devices have PHS (Public Hot Spot) that prevent data communication between individual wireless clients in a hot spot, both within the wireless cell as well as across access points.

As more companies run time and bandwidth-critical applications such as Voice-over-IP telephony or video conferencing, FEC has implemented the wireless multimedia (WMM) standard from the WiFi Alliance in the funkwerk W1002 and funkwerk W2002. WMM prioritises the transmission of voice and video signals to ensure optimal transmission quality.

Focus on security
The new access points support all current security standards. Besides the older authentication and encryption standards WEP and WPA, WPA2 Personal and WPA2 Enterprise (802.11i) are also implemented. The devices also allow the use of central RADIUS servers and both models support the automatic bridge mode and protect connections with TKIP or AES coding.

Key Features of funkwerk W1002 / funkwerk W2002
  • 802.11a/b/g/h transmission standards
  • Security standards 802.1x and 802.11i (WPA2), RADIUS, configuration via SSH or HTTPS
  • Two antennas per wireless module; funkwerk W1002 with one wireless module, funkwerk W2002 with two wireless modules
  • Bridge: Proprietary funkwerk protocol with encrypted transmission; use of high security TKIP and AES possible.
  • Two Ethernet ports

The devices will be available in retail from July 2006. The recommended selling price for funkwerk W1002 is 349 Euro plus VAT and for funkwerk W2002 599 Euro plus VAT. FEC provides a two-year warranty for both devices.
