|Working in unison with HP controllers, the HP 802.11n Dual Radio Access Point Series delivers high-performance networking solutions. The enhanced controller architecture scales to IEEE 802.11n without requiring a controller replacement. The controller provides advanced radio resource management (RRM), including client load balancing and interference mitigation. The HP wireless controllers support a fast-roaming capability—an important feature, especially for VoIP communications. The access points can be used in managed as well as autonomous mode without a controller. The access points provide RF spectrum analysis with detection and classification of non-IEEE 802.11 interference and have the ability to automatically avoid interference. 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. In addition to working with the HP MSM controllers, these access points work with the new HP 10500/7500 20G Unified Wired-WLAN Module, the HP 800 Series Unified Wired-WLAN Switch, and the HP WX5002/5004 wireless controllers.|
- Wi-Fi Clear Connect: provides a system-wide approach to improving WLAN reliability by proactively determining and adjusting to changing RF conditions; helps optimize WLAN performance by detecting interference from Wi-Fi and non-Wi-Fi sources using spectrum analysis capabilities built into the access points, 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 adjustment. Automatic radio channel: provides intelligent channel switching and real-time Interferencedetection. Intelligent client load balancing: determines number of clients across neighboring APs and adjustsclient allocation to balance the load. Airtime fairness: provides equal RF transmission time for wireless clients. Spectrum analysis : Power/frequency spectrum analysis: measures noise from IEEE 802.11 remote sources. Signal detection/classification: identifies source of RF interference, for example, Bluetooth®, cordless phones, and microwave ovens. Evaluation of channel quality: helps detect severe channel degradation and improve thereporting of poor RF performance. Integrated IDS: detects and locates unknown and rogue devices (see controllerdatasheet for details). Access point management: provides secure Web browser (SSL and 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.
- Rate limiting: supports per-wireless client ingress-enforced maximums andper-wireless client, per-queue guaranteed minimums. Centralized traffic: maintains Layer 2 and Layer 3 QoS settings when using centralized traffic or guest access. IEEE 802.1p prioritization: delivers data to devices based on the priority and type of traffic. Wireless: L2/L3/L4 classification: supports IEEE 802.1p VLAN priority, SpectraLink SVP, and DiffServ. Virtual Service Community (VSC): assigns Wi-Fi MultiMedia (WMM), IEEE 802.11e EDCF, and Service-Aware priority. VoIP call capacity: supports 12 active calls per radio, maximum. 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: adjusts automatically for straight-through or crossover cables on the Ethernet interface.
- Three spatial stream MIMO technology: provides the latest in Wi-Fi technology, which allows for 450 Mb/s of signaling per radio; delivers potentially more than a 50 percent increase in performance over any two spatial stream product. Beamforming: provides better coverage area and better performance at distances from the AP. Bandsteering: redirects 5 GHz-capable clients automatically to the less-congested 5 GHz spectrum. Concurrent operation in the 5 GHz band: provides the ability to run both radios in the 5 GHz band for outstanding performance (MSM466 and MSM466-R access points only). MSM430 and MSM460 AP antennas: provides excellent coverage through use of embedded high-gain antennas (5 dBi antenna at 2.4 GHz and 7 dBi antenna at 5 GHz); no need for the added cost of external antennas.
- Integrated IDS support: Automated AP and client classification: reduces manual effort (administrator can override AP classification). Comprehensive detection capabilities: detects a wide range of attacks. Flexible event reporting: enables configuration of which events will result in notifications. Location tracking capabilities: helps identify the rogue device location. Flexible deployment models: supports time slicing or dedicating a radio to detect full-time. - see the controller datasheet. 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: prevents communication between wireless devices associated with the same access point.
