Moxa Launches Outdoor 802.11n AP with 300 Mbps Data Rate

Moxa has rolled out a new 802.11n wireless access point for outside campus use that supports both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz radio frequencies. The AWK-6232 series delivers a data rate of up to 300 Mbps and was designed to address the need for faster transmission speeds and wider coverage in exterior networks.

The device's dual 2.4/5 GHz RF permit two independent wireless connections over different frequencies, which can provide more flexibility in installations where electromagnetic interference is a problem. The unit is housed in a metal enclosure that can withstand extreme heat and cold, moisture, corrosive liquids, and shock, according to the company. The list price is $3199.

"Anyone who has suffered download delays or interruptions on an outdoor wireless network should welcome the AWK-6232, our top-of-the-line, high-bandwidth outdoor wireless solution," said Product Marketing Manager Ariana Drivdahl.
