ComNet Introduces Wireless Perimeter Transmission Solution
ComNet, Communication Networks of Danbury, Connecticut, a USA-based manufacturer of fiber optic, wireless and copper transmission and networking equipment, has introduced the NetWave® NW8 wireless Ethernet link that is designed to support redundant ring and “Drop-and-Insert” functionality on a wireless network. The NW8 is a dual radio version of the recently introduced NW series of environmentally hardened wireless Ethernet products.
ComNet positions this product as a solution for large-scale perimeter protection for facilities such as airports, border patrol and other large facilities where a wired infrastructure is cost-prohibitive. The NW8 models feature dual gigabit Ethernet ports that support up to two IP connections and allow for multiple IP cameras to be aggregated onto the wireless network. The NW8 also supports optional IEEE802.3at PSE (Power Sourcing Equipment) for powering PoE connected devices, such as IP PoE cameras and simplifying installation.
“Wireless Ethernet gives our customers an incredible amount of flexibility. Our goal of making wireless as easy as Power, Point and Play was step 1. Step 2 is to start examining different unique use scenarios and developing wireless products that solve those challenges. This dual radio NetWave® NW8 products are the result and solves that perimeter surveillance challenge,“ said Andrew Acquarulo Jr., ComNet President and COO.
“One mission at ComNet has always been to demystify transmission, be it fiber optic or Ethernet. NetWave® from ComNet simplifies wireless and gives our customers another solution," Acquarulo concluded.
With the introduction of NetWave® wireless Ethernet products, ComNet has become a single-source solution offering transmission solutions over all media types.
“Our goal has always been to be a one-stop resource for all our customers, offering transmission solutions over copper, optical fiber and now wireless,” said Skip Haight, ComNet VP of Marketing. “We believe having a one place to turn to for USA-made quality solutions as well as an exceptional level of support will be a huge benefit for anyone implementing a transmission network,” Haight continued.
