Ethernet Direct Introduces IEEE 802.11 b/g FWI-701 & FWI-702 Wireless Outdoor CPE Solution - AP/Bridge/Client/Repeater

Taipei, Taiwan, 10 May, 2007 - Ethernet Direct Corporation, a professional and primary provider of industrial networking and communication solutions, introduces Industrial Wireless Outdoor CPE solution series, FWI-701 and FWI-702, compliant with IEEE 802.11 b/g AP/Bridge/Client/Repeater suitable for Industrial Ethernet applications.

The FWI-701 supports 2.4GHz radio module while FWI-702 supports 2.3GHz with less interference. With innovation technology design, both FWI-701 and FWI-702 provide 54Mbps high data rate for outdoor environment. It links two or more separate networks to create a single expanded LAN network cost effectively and efficiently. The robust IP-66 housing protects the device from harsh outdoor environment - weatherproof, waterproof, dustproof. A built-in 12dBi patch antenna is included for flexibility in installation.

There are five different operation modes: Access Point, Point to point Bridge, Point to Multipoint Bridge, AP Client and repeater. In addition, the built-in PoE design reduces the cost of power cables installation and provides future proof investment. To secure information, it comes with WEP encryption and WAP function. With of these advanced features, FWI-701 and FWI-702 are powerful Outdoor CPE solutions produced for Industrial applications.
