Legrand Ups Speed Of Installed WAP

9/08/2011 12:01:00 AM Eastern

INDIANAPOLIS — Home-automation supplier Legrand
will boost the speed of its installed Wireless
Access Point from 54Mbps to 300Mbps beginning
in the fall with the shipment of its Wi-Fi 802.11n
Wireless Access Point (N-WAP).

N-WAP, part of the company’s Unity home-automation
system, can be installed two ways—- as a domeshaped
unit on the ceiling or a wall-mounted rectangular
box. A single SKU includes all hardware necessary
for both wall-mount and ceiling-mount options.

It replaces the company’s current wireless access
point and features multiple internal antennas to improve
Wi-Fi coverage throughout the home.

It connects to a home’ router via CAT-5 cable. A
separate power wire doesn’t have to be run to the
access point because power is delivered over CAT-
5 via PoE (Power over Ethernet) technology.

It can be mounted over a triple-gang or singlegang
electrical box.

“This new Wireless Access Point enables homeowners
to fully utilize all their Wi-Fi devices throughout
their homes without any concern for bandwidth
constraints,” said Dave Hanchette, marketing VP for
Legrand’s home systems division.
