ComNet NW1 Gen 4
ComNet, Communication Networks, is announcing the introduction of its Generation 4 line of NetWave® wireless products that offer greater performance and increased stability in applications where throughput and increased bandwidth is increasingly important.
The NW1 Gen 4 can exceed 500Mbps throughput under ideal conditions, accommodates 10/100/1000Mbps Ethernet, it also now has IEEE802.3at PoE Compliant PD on port 1 and an IEEE802.3af power source (PSE) available on port 2. Distance is specified for applications of up to 2 miles. The new hardware features a high-performance chipset with a quad-core CPU that is designed to meet the high throughput demands that surveillance applications require.
The all-new NW1 throughput is far greater than the original 95Mbps the original NW1 offered. The NW1 is available in kit form, the NWK1, and consists of two MAC Address-locked radios and mounting hardware. Each NW1 unit is enclosed in a new more durable enclosure and is designed for extreme conditions and has an extended operating temperature range as well as being IP67 rated for resistance to water and dust intrusion. As with other ComNet NetWave® products, the NWK1 is easy to set up and operate. It features a unique connection procedure using LEDs to assist in aiming the units for optimal performance.
“Our engineering team was challenged to increase performance in our next generation of NetWave® products,” said Andrew Acquarulo Jr., CEO and president of ComNet. “We wanted to increase performance without increasing the cost to our customers.” “This new NW1 accomplished all our goals for this product line.”
“The increased performance of the NW1 allowed us to reduce our NetWave® model offering and ultimately make selecting the right NetWave® product very easy for our customers,” said Skip Haight, vice president of marketing at ComNet. “We believe everybody is looking for that something extra and, in this case, we are giving ComNet customers increased performance at no additional cost.”
