New 802.11g WLAN option for faster wireless networks
Zebra Technologies, the provider of global on-demand printing solutions, has launched 802.11g wireless LAN options for Zebras QL Plus series and RW series mobile printers.
Zebras new 802.11g radio options provide those who need to migrate to faster, data-intensive networks with state-of-the-art mobile printers. This hardware supports the latest wireless standards, while maintaining the highest levels of security with built in 802.11i and WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protected Access 2).
New 802.11g networks are up to five times faster than existing 802.11b networks, offer solid signal range and support more users simultaneously. Although 802.11g networks are compatible with 802.11b devices, maximum wireless performance is obtained when all devices on the network support the faster protocol. The Zebra Value Radio, 802.11g offered on Zebras QL Plus series now, and RW series mobile printers later in July enables Zebra mobile printers to support the same speed and security that companies invested in when selecting 802.11g equipment for their networks.
The advanced 802.11g wireless option is yet another example of Zebras leading-edge wireless expertise, said Bob Danahy, Zebras director of global mobile and wireless technology. This new option allows Zebra to further meet the mobile label and receipt printing requirements of large retailers, manufacturers, and healthcare organisations.
The Zebra Value Radio 802.11g supports 802.11i, VPN, and WPA/WPA2-Enterprise standards to ensure maximum data security. WPA2-Enterprise encrypts data with IEEEs Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) and verifies the identity of network users through Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP).
Such enterprise-level security platforms enable Zebra 802.11g Value Radio to support a variety of mobile applications, including point of sale, price markdowns, warehouse labelling, and more.
