Complying with the IEEE 802.11n WLAN standards, the Siemens range of coordinated industry-compatible components for wireless communication comprises of the access points SCALANCE W786 and W788, the client module SCALANCE W748 and the IWLAN controller SCALANCE WLC711. Offering data rates of up to 450Mbps, the new IWLAN components allow larger amounts of data transferred securely and quickly. The use of Mimo (multiple input, multiple output) technology with three antennae per wireless interface allows long ranges and high degree of robustness in wireless communication to be achieved. The access points are available in three versions. With the extended temperature range and highly resistant housing, SCALANCE W786 suits outdoor use. SCALANCE W788 is available with IP65 protection for outdoor use and with IP30 rating for control cabinets. With the SCALANCE W748 client module, any stationary or mobile devices with Ethernet capability can be integrated in the wireless network. The IWLAN controller, SCALANCE WLC711, allows central configuration and monitoring of up to 32 access points and client modules. With parallel operation of two such controllers, the network availability can be increased. Installed in a housing without a fan, the controller is suitable for DIN rail mounting. In addition to all these, there are access points and a client module also with integrated controller functionality in the versions SCALANCE W786C, SCALANCE W788C and SCALANCE W 748.
