A cost effective and simple alternative to extending your business or enterprise network.  The AEI-w540 is an IEEE 802.11b/g standards based Near Line-of-Site (nLOS) Point-to-Point (PtP) wireless bridge for your Wide Area Network (WAN) or Metropolitan Area Network (MAN).  The AEI-w540 can also be configured with directional gain sector antennas to support Point-to-Multipoint applications (22dBi max.antenna gain).

The primary application for the AEI-w540 is network connectivity in a building-to-building campus environments, remote access, and backhaul applications.  The AEI-w540 implements low latency and low jitter technology in an industrial-grade communications appliance. It provides reliable delivery of Voice over IP (VoIP), high definition video, data, and shared Internet traffic over a single wireless data link at approximately 30 times faster than ADSL and expensive T1 alternatives.

Operating in the license exempt 2.4 GHz frequency, the AEI-w540 is a secure and reliable communications grade solution that provides unparalleled range, capacity, and security in the most challenging environments. 

With IEEE 802.11i-PSK or WPA (PSK, TKIP) encryption the AEI-w540 offers heightened security. Additionally, it supports 256-bit Advanced Encryption Standards (Rjindael) for true end-to-end secure data transfers.

Flexible kit options enable the AEI-w540 to be deployed by the most cost effective means, either indoors or outdoors (depending on link calculations). The kit options also provide all the hardware you need to establish a link, thus making installation a snap.

AEI has strategic relationships with a variety of value added resellers capable of performing site surveys, installation, maintenance and support (maintenance and support packages are available and vary depending on location).
