Dätwyler Cables adds WLAN components to Unilan cabling systems

February 11, 2009--Using the WLAN technology Xirrus, Dätwyler Cables has added Wi-Fi arrays to its Unilan cabling portfolio. The arrays optionally integrate 4, 8, 12 or 16 "self-adjusting" access points (according to IEEE 802.11abg+n), have high-amplifying directional sector antennas, a Gigabit Ethernet switch, the Wi-Fi controller, a threat sensor, and a Stateful Inspection Firewall--all in one housing.

These arrays provide ranges from 7,000 to 11,600 square meters, coverage up
to 1,024 users per device, data throughputs of up to 864 Mbits/sec, and
bandwidths of 2 Gbits each. They are appropriate for professional use in the office environment, in conference centers and educational institutions, in production and logistics, hotels and hospitals, as well as in airports.

To guarantee a safe data transfer and energy supply of the device, Dätwyler
Cables recommends installation of a shielded twisted-pair data cable
with a high conductor cross-section to feed it. The company offers a series of housing and installation solutions designed to ensure full integration into the infrastructure, and also ensure that business-critical security requirements are upheld.

The Xirrus Management System (XMS) allows the network managers to guarantee a central configuration, setup and management of safety features (IDS/IPS), a central performance monitoring of all Wi-Fi channels, and central reporting for several hundred Wi-Fi arrays via the installed Layer 3-network.

PoGE injectors available for the power supply to the devices, via the structured Gigabit Ethernet cabling. A central remote power system is designed for a simplified and cost-efficient power supply. Optionally, the arrays can be powered via the integrated power supply unit. The power consumption under full load amounts to 26 to 100 watts, depending on the device.
