Symbol reduces cost of enterprise wireless networking ownership
Global wireless mobile company Symbol Technologies announced the Symbol Mobius Wireless System in the Middle East, the industry's first switched-wireless networking architecture, which dramatically reduces deployment, management and technology upgrade costs associated with enterprise wireless network ownership.
The new product is designed to deliver advanced wireless networking services and application-specific security to IEEE 802.11b (Wi-Fi), 802.11a, 802.11g and legacy Symbol Spectrum24 (802.11 and 802.11b) wireless networks and mobile systems.
In the wireless local area network (LAN) market, enterprise customers need to buy, integrate and manage separate products for application-specific wireless security, network management and wireless connectivity. Symbol has engineered all these capabilities into the Mobius Axon Wireless Switch, which centrally delivers wireless connectivity and features Mobius Axon Access Ports.
In its first commercial deployment, the Mobius Wireless System supported more than 1,000 wireless users in public “hot spots” at the Georgia World Congress Center for NetWorld+Interop and COMDEX Atlanta 2002 in early September.
Founded in 1975, Symbol Technologies is a global provider of secure mobile information systems that integrate application-specific hand-held computers with wireless networks for data and voice and bar code data capture. — (menareport.com)
