Product Overview

The Cisco ® WET200 Wireless-G Business Ethernet Bridge (Figure 1) transparently bridges separate Ethernet networks together wirelessly and is ideal for small businesses with offices and resources that are in different office suites of a building or in closely adjacent buildings. The WET200 is a Power over Ethernet (PoE) end device, so it can be installed anywhere an Ethernet cable can be run if there is no ready access to a power outlet. PoE enables delivery of both data and power to the Cisco WET200. An AC adapter is also included for use if the device installation site has a power outlet nearby.
Advanced security features include Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA2) with up to 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) encryption using Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP), giving small businesses the protection they need to communicate and transfer data securely. The integrated quality of service (QoS) features provide consistent voice and video quality on both the wired and wireless networks, enabling the deployment of business-quality voice over IP (VoIP) and video applications.
Additional support for VLANs, Simple Network Management Protocol (SNMP), Spanning Tree Protocol, and port mirroring make this an ideal solution for network administrators to incorporate into larger organizations.
