U.S. Robotics to enhance wireless networking solutions
U.S. Robotics, the leading provider of Internet and connectivity solutions, has reaffirmed its commitment to enhanced wireless networking solutions for the larger-scale business environment by enabling its wireless Access Points to be placed up to 100 metres away from the nearest electric socket. The new USR 5446 Power over Ethernet (PoE) Kit extends wireless networks and improves wireless coverage without the cost of additional electrical outlets.
The PoE Kit uses a Cat 5 Ethernet cable to carry both data signals and electrical power allowing wireless connectivity in more challenging environments such as larger buildings, historical buildings, buildings with thick concrete walls, warehouses and where an outside electrical socket is just not feasible. No special cabling or installation of additional electrical sockets is required.
“Buildings and warehouses don’t always have power points where you want them, but now you don’t have to pay for qualified electricians to install new sockets in order to implement an effective wireless network throughout your business environment – even to outside areas,” explains Yusuf Syed, Regional Manager Middle East, U.S. Robotics. “Keeping in view the high levels of wireless networking adoption in the Middle East, the USR 5446 will ease implementation of such networks. The PoE kit will also provide an incomparable combination of high performance and value for money.”
