The NWA1100N-CE has integrated business hardware features, including multi-operation modes, Power-over-Ethernet support and multiple SSIDs, with a cloud-based management user interface. Designed specifically for SMBs, the platform will be generally available this June. The NWA1100N-CE also offers data rates of up to 300M bps and PoE support (802.3af). For deployment flexibility, the product can be configured as an AP (access point), bridge, repeater or wireless client. The release also supports multiple SSIDs to help businesses segment their network for different workgroups or provide guest access. The platform provides enterprise-grade security with WPA/WPA2 and 802.1x support to protect data confidentiality.
The offering is powered by PowerCloud Systems' patented CloudCommand technology. Rather than dilute enterprise-caliber, cloud-managed services for SMBs, PowerCloud Systems has designed its solutions from the ground up to meet SMBs' needs. By integrating the NWA1100N-CE with CloudCommand, the product features several enhancements, including a single interface for user-friendly AP deployment and management and improved traffic management and security with VLAN tagging.
