Verniers IS6500p security appliance supports POE standards, which can help ease WLAN deployment headaches. For companies that require an extra layer of security, the IS6500p can secure 802.11 WLANs via IPSec. The IS6500p starts at less than $9,000, and its price is comparable to rival appliances, although add-ons such as encryption acceleration cards and additional ports can make the cost of locking down large WLAN segments rise quickly.
