Wi-NG architecture — delivering a unified voice, data and RF management platform
Improve business process flow with one platform for wireless voice, video, data and multiple RF technologies on one platform — such as RFID, Wi-Fi (including 802.11n) and future technologies such as Wi-MAX; rich enterprise-class functionality includes seamless roaming across L2/L3 deployments, resilient failover capabilities, comprehensive security, toll-quality voice and other value-added services, such as multi-RF locationing.

Role-based wired/wireless firewall
Comprehensively secures and protects the wired and wireless network with Stateful Inspection against attacks and unauthorized access at Layer 2 and Layer 3; ability to create identity and location-based policies provides granular control of network access.

Adaptive AP — Extending the Enterprise
Enables centralized management of 802.11 a/b/g/n mesh access points at remote sites including automatic firmware upgrades; provides site survivability for remote locations with 802.11a/b/g/n networks for unparalleled resiliency.

SMART RF Management
Next generation self-healing: enables the WLAN to automatically and intelligently adapt to changes in the RF environment to eliminate unforeseen gaps in coverage.

Wireless Intrusion Protection System
The built-in wireless intrusion protection system provides defense against over-the-air attacks by leveraging the sensing capabilities of AP300/ AP51x1/ AP7131

Comprehensive layered security
Exceptional level of data and network protection without sacrificing fast roaming, including: WPA2-CCMP (with 802.11i fast roaming options); Stateful Firewall at Layer 2 and Layer 3 for the wired and wireless network with role based configurations; Geofencing, integrated RADIUS Server; IPSec VPN Gateway; Secure Guest Access Provisioning; 802.11w for management frame protection, and 24×7 dedicated security via Motorola’s Wireless IPS, providing the advanced technology required to detect any rogue network, including 802.11n

Enhanced End-to-End Quality of Service (QoS)
Enhances voice and video capabilities; prioritizes network traffic to minimize latency and provide optimal quality of experience; SIP Call Admission Control and Wi-Fi Multimedia Extensions (WMM-Power Save) with Admission Control enhances multimedia application support and improves battery life and capacity; network optimization through granular bandwidth contracts based on bandwidth utilization network load and number of users for different applications being used, in different locations; TSPEC Admission Control ensures ample bandwidth and a superior user experience for VoIP calls; 802.11k provides effective radio resource management.

Real Time Locationing System (RTLS)
