KBC Networks Announces Upgrades to its Wireless Ethernet Range04-Dec-2016
KBC Networks, manufacturer of IP, wireless and fibre optic transmission equipment for commercial and industrial networks, has announced a new development in the evolution of its wireless range.
With promises to increase product flexibility and throughput, at the same time as reducing cost, the transmission provider has launched the WES3 wireless Ethernet series. WES3 replaces KBC’s II generation wireless products. It comes in a new, compact format and with enhanced, user-selectable firmware. The new firmware means that with one common unit, installers are now able to select the device configuration, as either client/station or host/AP mode for both point-to-point and point-to-multipoint links. The aim is to make system installation easier and more flexible, and to reduce customers’ stock-holding and cost. Customers are now able to build a simple point-to-point wireless bridge, a more complex point-to-multipoint wireless network or mixed configurations, all with one common unit.
The first in the new 3 series products provides throughput of up to 99Mbps in the licence-free 5GHz band. For high throughput applications, KBC’s popular HT range delivers 230Mpbs+ throughput (400Mbps aggregate). All of the KBC wireless ranges are fully compatible and all come with free design assistance and technical support.
