New wireless network architecture

The Motorola Solutions business of Motorola, Inc. today announced WiNG 5 WLAN, the next generation architecture for its portfolio of 802.11n wireless LAN (WLAN) access points and controllers.

WiNG 5 WLAN supports voice, video and data applications by enabling access points (AP) to locally enforce security policies, providing quality of service and mobility, and intelligently forwarding traffic directly along optimal paths to avoid controller bottlenecks.

The WiNG 5 WLAN solution is now available globally on the RFS 4000 integrated wireless services controller and the AP 650 access point, with phased introduction on the RFS 6000 and RFS 7000 wireless controllers and the AP 6511, AP 7131 and AP 7181 access points expected to be completed in the first quarter of 2011.
