|HP offers intelligent IEEE 802.11n wireless access points, ranging from our single-radio 802.11a/b/g/n to our dual 802.11a/b/g/n access points. The MSM access points are advanced wireless devices that provide consistent, easy-to-manage connectivity that expands your existing network. The access points maintain your network without interruption and reduce bottlenecks and network complexity by determining where data needs to go throughout the network. The MSM access points provide complete wireless coverage for greater reliability and connectivity. The access points can be used in managed mode as well as
autonomous mode without a controller. Working in unison with HP MSM controllers, the HP MSM 802.11n Access Point Series delivers high-performance networking solutions. The enhanced controller architecture scales to 802.11n without requiring a controller replacement. The MSM controller provides advanced Radio Resource Management (RRM), including client load balancing and interference mitigation. The MSM wireless controllers support a fast-roaming capability, an important feature especially for VoIP communications. Wireless security is comprehensive with integrated Wireless IDS and support for internal and external authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) servers, built-in stateful firewall, per-user VLAN mapping, and authentication.|
- Wi-Fi Clear Connect: provides a system-wide approach to improve WLAN reliability by proactively determining and adjusting to changing RF conditions; helps optimize WLAN performance by identifying rogue activity and making decisions at a system-wide level. Advanced radio resource management: Automatic radio power adjustments: include real-time power adjustments based on changingenvironmental conditions and signal coverage adjustments. Automatic radio channel: provides intelligent channel switching and real-time Interferencedetection. Intelligent client load balancing: determines the number of clients across neighboring APs and adjustsclient allocation to balance the load. Airtime fairness: provides equal RF transmission time for wireless clients. Integrated IDS (Premium Mobility version required): - detects and locates unknown and rogue devices. Access point management: provides secure Web browser (SSL, VPN), command-line interface, SNMP v2c, SNMP v3, MIB-II with traps, and RADIUS Authentication Client MIB (RFC 2618); offers embedded HTML management tool with secure access (SSL and VPN); implements scheduled configuration and firmware upgrades from a central controller. HP Intelligent Management Center and Wireless Services Manager Software: provides central management for discovery, logging, status, and configuration management.
- Rate limiting: supports per-wireless client ingress-enforced maximums andper-wireless client, per-queue guaranteed minimums. Centralized traffic: Layer 2 and Layer 3 QoS settings are maintained when usingMobility Traffic Manager or guest access. IEEE 802.1p prioritization: delivers data to devices based on the priority and type of traffic. Wireless: L2/L3/L4 classification: IEEE 802.1p VLAN priority, SpectraLink SVP, and DiffServ. Assigned by VSC: Wi-Fi MultiMedia (WMM), IEEE 802.11e EDCF, and Service-Aware priority. Maximum VoIP call capacity: 12 active calls on IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n. SpectraLink Voice Priority (SVP) support: prioritizes SpectraLink voice IP packets sent from a SpectraLink NetLink SVP server to SpectraLink wireless voice handsets to help ensure excellent voice quality.
- IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) support: simplifies deployment and dramatically reduces installation costs by helping to eliminate the time and cost involved in supplying local power at each access point location. Auto-MDIX: automatically adjusts for straight-through or crossover cables on all 10/100 ports.
- Anywhere, anytime wireless coverage: includes a single radio IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n access point; per-radio software-selectable configuration of frequency bands; self-healing, self-optimizing local mesh that extends network availability; Wi-Fi Alliance Certification for interoperability with all IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n client devices; and IEEE 802.3af PoE. Medical standards: meets the EuropeanEN60601-1-2 standard for healthcare. Interoperability: meets Wi-Fi Alliance Certifications, including IEEE 802.11g Wi-Fi and WPA2, to help ensure multivendor interoperability. Virtual Service Communities (VSCs): includes up to 16 SSIDs, each with unique MAC address and configurable SSID broadcasts; individual security and QoS profiles per VSC; configurable DTIM and minimum data rate per VSC; VSCs that can be mapped to separate IEEE 802.1Q VLANs; WMM and/or WMM-PS; a security filter; and an IP filter. AP client access control functions: - IEEE 802.1X authentication using EAP-SIM, EAP-FAST, EAP-TLS, EAP-TTLS, and PEAP. - MAC address authentication using local or RADIUS access lists. - RADIUS AAA using EAP-MD5, PAP, CHAP, and MS-CHAPv2. - RADIUS Client (RFC 2865 and 2866) with location-aware support. - Layer 2 wireless client isolation.
- Choice of IEEE 802.11i, WPA2, or WPA: locks out unauthorized wireless access by authenticating users prior to granting network access; robust Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) or Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) encryption secures the data integrity of wireless traffic. IEEE 802.1X support: provides port-based user authentication with support for Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) MD5, TLS, TTLS, and PEAP with choice of AES, TKIP, and static or dynamic WEP encryption for protecting wireless traffic between authenticated clients and the access point. Choice of IEEE 802.11i, WPA2, or WPA: locks out unauthorized wireless access by authenticating users prior to granting network access; robust Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) or Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) encryption secures the data integrity of wireless traffic. TKIP/WEP encryption : is supported only on legacy IEEE 802.11a/b/g clients as it has been deprecated from the IEEE 802.11n standard. Local wireless bridge client traffic filtering: when enabled, prevents communication between wireless devices associated with the same access point.
