Alpha POS - Wireless-G Access Point

Available for: Hospitality & Retail POS

The Alpha POS Wireless-G Access Point lets you connect Wireless-G (802.11g) or Wireless-B (802.11b) devices to your wired network, so you can add PCs to the network without the need for additional cabling. This weather-resistant access point creates a "wireless bubble" in exterior spaces, such as patios and outdoor cafés. Power over Ethernet (PoE) support makes it easy to install, and you can create multiple basic service set identifiers (BSSIDs) that connect to individual VLANs to keep your traffic separated.

The weather-resistant housing protects the access point and is lightning protected. To protect your data and privacy, the Alpha POS Wireless-G Access Point supports both Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and the industrial-strength wireless security of Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), encoding all of your wireless transmissions with powerful encryption. The MAC address filter lets you decide who can access your wireless network, and advanced logging keeps you apprised of access attempts. Configuration is a snap with the web browser-based configuration utility.

RangeBooster technology, a compatible add-on to standard Wireless-G, can nearly double the range of your wireless network and increase its throughput by up to 35 percent. Unlike ordinary wireless technologies that are confused by signal reflections, RangeBooster uses two smart receivers at each end to detect and decode reflected signals at distances where standard technologies give up. You'll find that "dead spots" in the wireless coverage area are reduced as well.

Additional features such as multiple BSSIDs, wireless roaming, and auto-channel selection make the Alpha POS Wireless-G Access Point ideal for your business.
• Extends network to exterior business environments, keeping employees connected and productive
• Features RangeBooster technology, which increases wireless throughput and range and reduces "dead spots" in the wireless coverage areas
• Advanced wireless security protects network traffic to keep business assets safe
• Weather-resistant housing, internal high-gain antennas, and Power over Ethernet simplify installations and expand placement options
