HUNT VALLEY, Md. & ORLANDO, Fla. -- June 24, 2013
Ventev Wireless Infrastructure, a division of TESSCO Technologies Incorporated
(NASDAQ: TESS), today announced new TerraWave Solutions products to deploy,
protect, power, and improve the performance of Cisco networks. Showcased at
Cisco Live 2013, these include a horizontal wall-mount access point (AP)
enclosure for high-ceiling structures; a mirrored-bubble enclosure for
hospital environments; a ceiling tile enclosure to secure the MobileAccess VE
Pod as it works with Cisco APs to offload cellular traffic onto Wi-Fi
networks; a directional antenna to support the upcoming 802.11ac standard; a
dual-band antenna that extends coverage in high-density environments; and two
antenna mounts that enhance Cisco antenna coverage.
“We are excited to showcase the latest TerraWave-branded innovations at Cisco
Live 2013,” said Jeff Lime, vice president of Ventev Wireless Infrastructure.
“As a Cisco Developer Network (CDN) Partner, we constantly look for ways to
improve our products to better serve Cisco and its customers. Our TerraWave
products complement Cisco AP deployments and enhance Cisco wireless
The new horizontal wall-mount enclosure, designed for Cisco’s 1142, 3502i,
3602i, 1602i, and 2602i APs, mitigates issues caused by high-ceiling
structures. The enclosure horizontally mounts to dry wall, metal poles or
sheet rock, providing ground-level coverage in buildings where vertical
ceiling mounting is impossible. The enclosure includes a clear bubble that
allows visibility to the AP or a white cover that offers a consistent and
aesthetically pleasing design.
In addition, TerraWave has designed a special mirrored-bubble enclosure for
hospital applications. Its non-metallic, reflective coating, when deployed,
can be used to view the immediate surroundings without hindering Wi-Fi
TerraWave has partnered with Corning MobileAccess to design a ceiling-tile
enclosure compatible with the MobileAccess VE Access Pod (VAP) and works in
conjunction with Cisco APs to offload cellular traffic onto existing Wi-Fi
networks. The lightweight enclosure seamlessly integrates into the ceiling
tile grid and offers security for the MobileAccess VAP and Cisco AP as they
work together to balance network traffic.
“TerraWave’s enclosures offer maximum protection and safety for Cisco APs,”
With the ratification of 802.11ac quickly approaching, companies and
institutions are eagerly awaiting the enhanced capability this new standard
will offer. TerraWave has engineered its first 802.11ac-compatible antenna –
the 5-GHz, 6-dBi Patch Antenna that has been designed with eight leads and is
compatible with most Cisco APs.
Another new product is TerraWave’s smallest antenna – the 2.4/5-GHz 2-dBi
Bantam Antenna that is 1-1/2 inches tall and compatible with all Cisco APs.
This antenna has been deployed in professional stadiums and arenas nationwide,
offering extended coverage and enhanced capacity in challenging, high-density
To allow companies and institutions to more accurately position their Cisco
antennas, TerraWave created two new antenna mounts. The newest mount for
Cisco’s Grayling Antenna allows for more precise increments of articulation,
optimizing the position of the antenna and the coverage it provides. The mount
for Cisco’s AIR-ANT2566P4W-R Patch Antenna provides articulation for an
antenna that traditionally can be deployed in a single position. These mounts
enhance the coverage that these Cisco antennas provide.
