ComNet Launches Gen 4 Wireless Ethernet Solution
ComNet says the NW1 Gen 4 can exceed 500Mbps throughput under ideal conditions for applications of up to two miles.
DANBURY, Conn. — ComNet, a manufacturer of fiber optic transmission and networking equipment, introduces its generation 4 line of NetWave wireless products, which are said to offer greater performance and increased stability in applications where throughput and increased bandwidth is increasingly important.
The NW1 Gen 4 can exceed 500Mbps throughput under ideal conditions, accommodates 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet and also now has IEEE802.3at PoE-compliant PD on port 1 and an IEEE802.3af power source (PSE) available on port 2, according to the company.
Distance is specified for applications of up to two miles. The new hardware features a high-performance chipset with a quad-core CPU that is designed to meet the high throughput demands that surveillance applications require.
“Our engineering team was challenged to increase performance in our next generation of NetWave products. We wanted to increase performance without increasing the cost to our customers. This new NW1 accomplished all our goals for this product line,” says Andrew Acquarulo Jr., ComNet CEO and president.
ComNet says the all-new gen 4 NW1 throughput is far greater than the original 95Mbps the original NW1 offered. The NW1 is available in kit form, the NWK1, and consists of two MAC Address-locked radios and mounting hardware.
Each NW1 unit is enclosed in a new more durable enclosure and is designed for extreme conditions and has an extended operating temperature range, as well as being IP67 rated for resistance to water and dust intrusion, and features a unique connection procedure using LEDs to assist in aiming the units for optimal performance. according to the company.
“The increased performance of the NW1 allowed us to reduce our NetWave model offering and ultimately make selecting the right NetWave product very easy for our customers,” adds Skip Haight, ComNet VP of marketing. “We believe everybody is looking for that something extra and, in this case, we are giving ComNet customers increased performance at no additional cost.”
