Silex Technology Introduces New SX-AP-4800AN Access Point

Dual-Band 802.11n Wireless Access Point Provides Enhanced Roaming, PoE and Enterprise Wireless Security


SANTA ANA, Calif., June 10, 2014 – Silex Technology America, Inc., a global leader in wired and wireless networking solutions, today announced the SX-AP-4800AN, a dual-band 802.11n wireless access point (base station) that is able to communicate with station devices (clients) supporting IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n wireless networks. Because of enhanced roaming and security capabilities, the new wireless access point is ideal for education, industrial, and other specialized business networking applications.

 “With the new SX-AP-4800AN access point, Silex is excited to be able to offer a cost effective solution for businesses that need a reliable connection from their wireless devices to the network infrastructure,” said John Halloran, product manager at Silex America. “Customers can integrate these access points into existing networks, or our experts can customize the entire wireless experience for specific application requirements.”

 SX-AP-4800AN introduces rich access point features typically found only in very high-end enterprise access points. It includes support for 802.11r, a QoS (Quality of Service) technology which allows clients to roam from one access point to another in less than 50 milliseconds by streamlining the authentication process using a function called FT (Fast Basic Service Set Transition). It also has PoE (Power over Ethernet) and 802.1x Enterprise Security capabilities.

 “Adding access points to our rich technology portfolio for embedded wireless client applications is key for our growth as a wireless company,” said Keith Sugawara, VP of Business Development. “This is another big step in pursuing our vision of Absolutely Must Connect technology, now being able to deliver a reliable wireless connection from the device all the way to the network infrastructure.”
