Burlingame, CA - Expanding its range of products for custom -installation audio/video, home networking, security systems and professional use, Pakedge Device & Software now offers its WAP -W3G Ultra -High -Power Wireless Access Point.

The WAP -W3G widens the capabilities of a wired/wireless network, and enables reliable connectivity in situations where cables cannot be installed. It's ideal for enterprise -class installations, or applications where high -speed, ultimate reliability and flexible operation are required.

The WAP -W3G's ultra -high -power 802b/g radio configuration and 2.4GHz frequency band provides a wireless operating range up to three times that of consumer products. The unit supports VLANs (virtual local area networks) and multiple SSIDs. This enables a user to segment a wireless network for different devices - for example, computers, A/V system touch panels and gaming systems - to provide the most efficient operation for all the connected devices.

Victor Pak, President and CEO of Pakedge, pointed out, "As today's multiroom audio/video systems and home networks become more complex, the need for seamless integration has never been greater. Our WAP -W3G is a versatile installation product that helps to make connecting even the most complicated systems easier, while providing a wide range of useful capabilities."

The WAP -W3G can be configured to operate in Wireless, Wireless Access Point (WAP), Wireless Bridge and Wireless Repeater (WDS). It offers adjustable power output and range, and is optimized for use with A/V system touch panels and control devices. Just a single Cat5e cable provides power and network connectivity, making the WAP -W3G perfect for custom installations. It is fully 802.3af -compliant, and can be powered by any PoE -compliant switch. The unit's dual antennas ensure the best -possible reception and transmission.

The WAP -W3G can be used worldwide, thanks to its software -enabled country and power output configurability. It supports a wide variety of security standards including WPA, WPA2, AES, TKIP, WEP, RADIUS, MAC filtering and SSID Hide. The WAP -W3G's compact (6.4" L x 4.2" W x 1.4" D) rugged aluminum housing facilitates installation in any interior environment.

The Pakedge WAP -W3G Ultra -High -Power Wireless Access Point is currently available and comes with dual 5dBi omnidirectional antennas, a power supply, Quick Start Guide and Cat5e cable. Please contact sales@pakedge.com for pricing.
