A wireless answer to any solution

Funkwerk’s ruggedised WI Series is optimised for operation under rough conditions, at extreme temperature, in outdoor areas or polluted areas.

They support the latest WLAN technology and are particularly designed for the use in professional applications. The WI series is available in two variants: the indoor IP40-protected WIx040, and the outdoor IP65-protected WIx065.

Depending on the model, the access points are equipped with one, two or three radio modules. The operation mode of each radio can be chosen individually between Client, AccessPoint and Bridge mode.

The WI1040 needs a licence to work as AP or Bridge. When using data of different applications it is important to prioritise some of them. The WI series supports WMM (wireless multimedia), a technique to prioritise certain data of applications like video or voice in order to provide maximum transmission quality for time-critical applications.

In addition to the WLAN standards 802.11b and 802.11g, these devices also support 802.11a as well as its European counterpart, the 802.11h. This is particularly advisable for building bridge solutions in outdoor areas. Additionally, they also support such modern processes as Multi SSID and VLAN, with which up to 16 virtual access points can be mapped per radio module.

To ensure highest security, the devices support the 802.1x and 802.11i (WPA2) security standards. The systems can be reliably configured using SSH, SSL or alternatively via https as well. When used as bridges, the devices support the automatic bridge mode and are able to secure bridge connections with the help of TKIP and AES encryption.

Other key features: SFP slot for fibre modules; serial interface RS232; wide temperature range from -25 to 70°C; IP40/65; optional theft protection; power over Ethernet.
