802.11 Type N Weatherproof Dual Industrial Hotspot

802.11 Type N Weatherproof Dual Industrial Hotspot

The RadioLinx 802.11n Industrial Hotspot series provides wireless solutions for plant-floor and field automation applications. The Industrial Hotspot family provides the rugged performance and ease of deployment required for industrial applications. These 802.11n Hotspots use multiple-input/multiple-output (MIMO) technology supporting up to three antennas for each of its two radios. This allows fast data rates up to 300Mbps providing advanced performance in industrial environments. The Dual Weatherproof Radio (RLXIB-IH2N-W) is a great selection for use as a repeater maintaining full bandwidth from each radio, repeating traffic without sacrificing speed. It also has an IP67 rating, making it water and dust-tight for use in all weather and mining applications.

More than just a new 802.11 technology, the RLXIB-IHN family adds RADIUS security for centralized management of security policies, VLANs for network traffic segmentation, and data prioritization while continuing to include the industrial wireless features that have made previous Industrial Hotspots successful.
