RuggedWireless RS900W



The RuggedWireless™ RS900W is an industrially hardened Ethernet switch which integrates an IEEE 802.11b/g Wireless Access Point, with a fully managed wired 8-Port Ethernet switch providing six Fast Ethernet copper only ports and two optional copper or fiber ports. With the installation of the RS900W wireless access point, a network designer will achieve the integration of wired and wireless networks. The RS900W can be configured as an access, client, or bridge device

Designed to operate reliably in harsh industrial environments the RS900W provides a high level of immunity to electromagnetic interference and heavy electrical surges typical of environments found in electric utility substations, factory floors or in curb side traffic control cabinets. An operating temperature range of -40°C to +85°C coupled with hazardous location certification, optional conformal coating and a galvanized steel enclosure allows the

RS900W to be placed in almost any location. The RS900W functions as a standalone IEEE 802.11b/g access point for wireless clients providing wireless data rates of up to 54Mbps. All wireless communications are protected by the very latest "robust security networks" features including strong encryption protocols using WPA with TKIP and even WPA2/802.11i with AES support. Static authentication support is provided by WPA-PSK. For additional centralized control, the RS900W also supports IEEE 802.1X/RADIUS for wireless user traffic and distributing dynamic encryption keys.

The embedded Rugged Operating System (ROS®) provides advanced networking features such as Enhanced Rapid Spanning Tree (eRSTP™), VLAN, Quality of Service, and a full array of intelligent functionality and advanced cyber security features for high network availability and manageability.

The RS900W is backed by a five year warranty and unsurpassed technical support.
