Extricom 802.11ac Access Point Adds Gigabit Wireless Support to its WLAN Portfol

Extricom Ltd., the high-density enterprise wireless LAN (WLAN) solution provider that delivers seamless mobility with its patented Channel Blanket architecture, today announced immediate availability of the RP-23ac, a dual radio access point designed for the latest 802.11ac Wi-Fi standard. Unlike most vendors' 802.11ac access points which are crippled by a lack of non-overlapping 80 MHz channels in the 5GHz band, Extricom's RP-23ac can be deployed without requiring any adjustment to the channel plan, or reconfiguration of other APs, to deliver on the performance promise of 802.11ac.

It is Extricom's unique single-channel architecture that makes it possible to fully exploit the increased performance and efficiency of 802.11ac, which can only be realized by using 80MHz bonded channels. With Extricom's interference-free Channel Blanket, only one clear 80MHz channel is needed to blanket an entire facility with a full-featured 11ac wireless network. In contrast, just as 802.11n is rendered useless at 2.4 GHz by too few non-overlapping channels, multi-channel architectures face the same channel-planning nightmare for 802.11ac with 80MHz channels. Industry analysts agree the shortage of available 80MHz channels is a severe constraint, while the small gain from 802.11ac with 40MHz channels has no cost justification.
