The Allen-Bradley Stratix 5100 wireless access point (WAP) features a work group bridge. Unlike typical wireless clients that connect a single IP address, the Stratix 5100 WAP enables engineers to connect up to 19 IP addresses simultaneously.
This WAP is for industrial networks needing secure and reliable wireless connectivity. Enterprise-class silicon and optimized radios deliver a robust mobility experience that includes 802.11a/b/g/n with 3 by 4 multiple-input multiple-output (MIMO) technology and three spatial streams.
With the Stratix 5100 wireless access point and work group bridge, users can access production data from remote and difficult-to-reach areas. They can share this data between automation systems or feed it into information systems for analysis and improved decision making. The WAP uses Cisco IOS.
