Firetide Inc. Announces Availability of the HotPort 5020, Wireless Infrastructure Node

Firetide Inc. announced the availability of the HotPort 5020, a wireless infrastructure node that breaks the price barrier to bring mesh to the edge. The HotPort 5020 expands Firetide's compelling value proposition of end-to-end redundancy and security to a wide range of data, video or voice applications, delivering a more reliable solution than traditional point-to-point (PTP) and point-to-multipoint (PTMP), which expose the network to single points of failure. Like all Firetide wireless infrastructure products, the HotPort 5020 delivers high reliability through its patented, self-healing AutoMesh technology, which ensures that the network remains available to high-bandwidth applications and always-on devices, even when the prevailing physical conditions are challenging. The 5020 wireless product line provides linear scalability when combined with the high-performance Firetide HotPort 7000 Series of wireless mesh nodes. Firetide HotPort 5020: Reliability in a rugged package at the edge of the network - High network availability. The HotPort 5020 can be deployed as a dual-radio version, which allows a second radio to be dedicated as the backup link. In case of failure on the primary link, there is a failover to the backup, minimizing downtime, less than 2 milliseconds between hand-off; Scalability without compromising throughput. A system designed with a combination of 7000 Series and 5020 nodes with AutoMesh can be linearly deployed for 15 hops with no need for fiber. At the same time, up to 15 5020 nodes can be attached to a single 7020 mesh node; End-to-end security. The Firetide HotPort 5020 employs 256-bit AES encryption. A network that features a combination of 5020 and 7020 mesh nodes can be managed as an end-to-end network, rather than as a series of links. This means customers can provision end-to-end security, quality of service, and policies across network segments; Rugged. All Firetide 5020 devices are clad in an all-weather IP66-rated enclosure with sturdy, stainless steel mounting brackets; Flexible. The Firetide HotPort 5020 Series can be ordered preconfigured as an edge mesh node in a PTMP connection or as PTP link in conjunction with another 5020 device.
