From telecommuters working at home to remote employees in branch offices and more, this easy-to-deploy solution offers the flexibility to connect to the corporate private network, the Internet and more. Whether your employees utilize a wired desktop or wirelessly-enabled laptop, the AP 5131 delivers the speed and functionality to support the most demanding applications, including real-time video and voice. This all-in-one solution delivers a new level of cost-efficiency and networking simplicity for remote workers. The need for IT expertise in smaller locations - and the need to purchase and manage multiple pieces of equipment - is eliminated through the built-in router, stateful inspection firewall, VPN, DHCP server, QoS engine, and more. Support for IEEE wireless networking standards and compliance with the EU's RoHS Directive ensures ease of integration into locations around the world.
Secure dual-radio 802.11a/b/g Architecture
Available with either one or two dual-band radios, the AP 5131 offers the flexibility to best meet your wireless LAN networking and security needs. In the event you only need to support one band, the low-cost single radio version can be configured to support either 802.11a or 802.11b/g wireless networking. The dual radio version can be configured to support both 802.11a and 802.11b/g wireless networks - or single-band data services and full-band rogue AP detection services, providing an additional level of security through the instant discovery of any unauthorized users. And a complete suite of dual and single-band antennas provides the versatility to obtain radio coverage in nearly any environment, with a minimal number of access points.
Rugged mechanical design
Engineered for rugged durability, the AP 5131 can be utilized in nearly any location - from a retail store to a harsh industrial environment. A variety of options ensure fast, easy, and cost-efficient installation. The device can be mounted either above or below suspended-ceiling tiles without mounting hardware, on the wall or simply placed on a desk. And with support for standards-based 802.3af Power-over-Ethernet, the need to run power to the device - and the associated wiring costs - are eliminated.
Enterprise-class wired and wireless security
Compliance with industry standards provides enterprise level security for your wired and wireless devices, as well as information transmitted over the air and over the wire. Devices connected to the WLAN and wireless transmissions are secured via 80211i, Wi-Fi, WPA and WPA2 authentication. Wireless users moving throughout your facility enjoy secure fast roaming with Symbol's KeyGuard and Kerberos. Communications with the corporate remote network are secured through the VPN and support for the IPSec protocol and triple-DES encryption. And wired devices are secured through support for 802.1x.
Support for multimedia applications
From simple to real-time demanding rich multimedia applications, the AP 5131 delivers reliable performance. The Wi-Fi Multimedia (WMM) standard for Quality of Service enables you to take advantage of low cost voice via Voice-over-IP, offer customers new services via a multi-media kiosk, enable employees to use video conferencing, and more.
Comprehensive remote management and monitoring
Symbol's Mobility Services Platform (MSP) delivers a new level of management simplicity and flexibility for the AP 5131.
