Centralization of the Wi-Fi environment enables enterprises to deploy 802.11a/b/g/n channels at every AP, creating multiple overlapping "Channel Blankets" that leverage each of the radios in the multi-radio UltraThin AP. Each channel's bandwidth is delivered across the blanket's service area (i.e. the combined coverage of all APs connected to the switch), with interference-free operation and consistent capacity throughout.
As the Wi-Fi client moves, different APs will be in the best position to serve it at different times. The switch always chooses the best uplink and downlink path to serve the client. While this is going on "behind the scenes," the client never experiences an AP-to-AP handoff (i.e. de-association and re-association), resulting in seamless mobility.
And with the inter-AP handoffs eliminated, the mobility problem of "sticky" clients goes away. Your organization now has the flexibility to choose any mix of clients, with the confidence that they will all operate with consistent behavior on the same network.
Wire-like connectivity with seamless mobility
Within each Channel Blanket, the switch avoids co-channel interference by permitting multiple APs to simultaneously transmit on the same channel but only if they won't interfere with each other.
At the same time, the diversity receiver inherent in the channel blanket means that the communications link is rock-solid, virtually eliminating the problem of frequent disconnections common in all other systems. No other system can provide the link robustness of Extricom, ensuring that Wi-Fi communications succeed even in the toughest of environments.
