access points and more on new 11ac standard

LAS VEGAS -- May 06, 2013
The demands on network bandwidth are dramatically increasing, and Motorola
Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI) is meeting those needs with a suite of new indoor-
and outdoor-rated 802.11ac access points (APs). Delivering faster speeds,
these APs help alleviate bandwidth challenges faced by both enterprises and
governments when users connect to Wi-Fi networks and access high-bandwidth
applications such as mobile video and streaming media applications.
The complete suite includes the AP 8232, AP 8222 and AP 8263, offering
flexible options for a wide variety of deployment scenarios. The APs also
enable integrated location and security sensing for mobile commerce
applications to help connect shoppers in retail stores and hotel guests both
indoors and outdoors. For government workers, these can provide data-rich
content and multimedia sharing across the government enterprise with
high-speed 802.11ac. These APs are also backward compatible with previous
802.11 standards and will support existing clients, preventing the need to
create a new infrastructure.
In addition, a new software upgrade to the award-winning WiNG 5 technology
delivers mobile applications faster with video acceleration to improve mobile
video streaming experience by eliminating legacy WAN bandwidth limitations.
*Indoor APs: the modular AP 8232 has an expandable design to support
plug-in applications such as a pan-tilt-zoom video camera, WAN back-haul
as well as dedicated environmental, location and security sensors. The AP
8222 offers a fixed configuration with an internal antenna and a dual
radio for customers who want an aesthetically pleasing fixture on the wall
*AP for ruggedized, outdoor environments: the AP 8263 offers a tri-radio,
fixed configuration for ruggedized and outdoor deployments and supports
integrated, wireless intrusion prevention system (WIPS) and location
sensing out of the box with a third radio module.
*Increased use of guest Wi-Fi is requiring retailers and hotels to upgrade
WAN links adding monthly bandwidth costs and requiring time to provision
the new circuits. The upgrade to WiNG 5 now provides real-time content
caching, improving web browsing and mobile app experiences for shoppers
and guests without requiring a major upgrade to the WAN infrastructure.
*With the latest software upgrade, WiNG 5.5 simplifies IT deployments by
extending its state-of-the-art, scalable AP management solution from a
centralized network operating center with a single unified management
portal for enterprise branch offices.
*The single dashboard view for hierarchical management, available on the
NX-9500 controller platform, allows management of remote controllers, APs,
WIPS and other applications all from an integrated easy-to-use, graphical
console and delivers centralized control over the enterprise Wi-Fi
*Motorola’s MESHConnex™ technology can now leverage the higher data rates
offered by 802.11ac to wirelessly enable a richer backhaul pipe for
*Utilize Motorola’s full breadth of Services to assist with optimal WLAN
architecture and network placement design as well as integration to help
ensure all AP models work efficiently. In addition, Motorola’s Software
Support, Service from the Start and managed service offerings provide
best-in-class capabilities to improve AP uptime, minimize equipment
downtime and provide reliable real-time data for peak WLAN operation.

“The demands on network bandwidth are on the rise, and our end-to-end solution
for the 802.11ac standard, including new APs and WiNG 5.5 upgrade, increase
capacity in the Wi-Fi network for both enterprise and government. In addition,
the application acceleration engine with content caching helps accelerate
application performance without requiring significant increases in WAN
Craig Mathias, principal, Farpoint Group
“It’s now very clear that 802.11ac is the next-generation enterprise and
government WLAN technology. And with this announcement, Motorola Solutions is
adding system features that are well-served by the enhanced capacity of
802.11ac. Demanding retail and public safety environments, for example, are
about to see a big upgrade in capability.”
