SYSTIMAX® Solutions, a worldwide leader in structured connectivity solutions and services for businesses, today announced that it has received WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2™) Certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance on the SYSTIMAX® AirSPEED™ Access Points.

Wireless products that are Wi-Fi CERTIFIED™ for WPA2 are interoperable and designed to have advanced encryption capabilities that meet demanding enterprise security needs for Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) operations. In addition, WPA2 products use technology that is based on the full IEEE 802.11i standard with government approved AES encryption.

The Wi-Fi Alliance has instituted a test suite that defines how member products are tested to certify that they are interoperable with other Wi-Fi CERTIFIED products. These tests are conducted at independent laboratories. “This is a critical qualification within the wireless industry,” noted Robert Yarbrough, SYSTIMAX AirSPEED Product Manager. “Since our SYSTIMAX AirSPEED products are new to the WLAN market, this should help us establish ourselves in the global marketplace and prove our credibility to our customers.”

The SYSTIMAX AirSPEED Solution combines state-of-the-art, enterprise-class access points with Signal Enhancing Antennas (SEA) and rack-mounted Power over Ethernet (PoE) devices to enable mobility, productivity, and network security in the workplace. It represents the next logical step to extend SYSTIMAX Solutions for the enterprise by providing a holistic approach to enterprise connectivity, including copper, fiber and wireless solutions. The SYSTIMAX SCS approach provides the structured connectivity installer with the solution and tools to install and certify the air interface at the same time as the structured cabling, resulting in a more cost effective installation that protects their overall connectivity investment.
