Provide high-performance 802.11n connectivity along with a seamless solution for wireless sensor networks in hazardous environments.
The new access point is also Class 1, Div 2/Zone 2 Hazardous Location certified. Other solutions require multiple units: one for 802.11n coverage and another for ISA100.11a sensor connectivity, for example. The Cisco Aironet 1552S offers a single box solution, minimizing the total cost of ownership.
By eliminating the extra power and network connections, the 1552S saves money and also reduces deployment times. It offers a flexible, secure, and scalable mesh network for high-performance wireless coverage for both Wi-Fi clients and ISA100.11a field instruments. All of these factors help improve overall plant reliability, safety, and profitability.
