AvaLAN Wireless Systems announces a new way to achieve robust and reliable data communication in the 2.4 GHz frequency band, the most globally accepted unlicensed portion of the spectrum.
AvaLAN's unique, secure, robust 2.4 GHz solution offers 38 non-overlapping independent operating channels. This gives the AvaLAN products unique flexibility to avoid or penetrate interference. AvaLAN products are an ideal replacement for installations where Wi-Fi systems are under-performing or failing completely due to insufficient range, excessive interference or unsatisfactory data reliability.
This new radio transceiver has been designed for point-to-point and point-to-multipoint wireless Ethernet applications, operating in the 2.4 GHz band with a range five times greater than Wi-Fi through walls or line-of-sight. The ruggedized outdoor radio package meets the IP66 Standard and transmits up to 4 W EIRP with a 19 dBi antenna, no FCC license required.
The AvaLAN 2.4 GHz products have a built-in web browser interface providing easy configuration, status monitoring and an RF spectrum analyzer to diagnose interference issues. Other benefits of the AvaLAN 2.4 GHz products include: the ability to be configured as a subscriber unit or as an access point serving up to 16 subscribers, automatic RF channel selection to minimize interference, 1.54 Mbps data rate, range up to 30 miles depending on antenna and terrain and 128 bit AES encryption, FIPS 197.
