Enterprise Wi-Fi features now at home Wi-Fi prices

Grandstream’s range of Wi-Fi access points delivers great business level networking performance at a fraction of the cost of traditional Wi-Fi systems. This is by far the most cost-effective Wi-Fi solution on the market and comes with the following great, must have features. AC Wave 2 (MU-MIMO) Wi-Fi was originally built to handle traffic on a first-come, first-serve basis, which could create network congestion. A Wi-Fi network with AC Wave 2 featuring MU-MIMO, complements a high-density client environment whilst keeping bandwidth availability a high-priority. Wave 2 supports unified communications systems, where voice, video and data can be used harmoniously in conjunction with each other on the same Wi-Fi access point. 2. Beamforming Beamforming technology allow access points to detect the location of clients and focus their signals towards those clients rather than simply radiating out in all directions, thus creating a stronger, faster and more reliable wireless system. A Beamforming AP allows for that hard-to-reach subscriber to be able to connect without sacrificing signal strength or capacity. 3. Cloud Management Modern day wireless networks are much more complex and may consist of hundreds or even thousands of access points, switches, firewalls and various other components. Deploying a Network Management System like Grandstream’s GWN Cloud gives you that ability and so much more, a great value add for managed IT providers who manage multiple systems and need a central platform in order to monitor and maintain the network. 4. Mesh A mesh network is another great way to optimize Wi-Fi speed and efficiency while also providing redundancy in case an Access Point goes down. A mesh network allows all access points to...
The most popular WISP backhaul solution in the world

The most popular WISP backhaul solution in the world

Ubiquiti Networks continue to disrupt the wireless broadband market with revolutionary technology that cuts through the limitations of 802.11 Wi-Fi technology. The new AirFiber AF-5XHD backhaul radio offers WISP’s a cost-effective, high capacity solution for long-range carrier class throughput for backhaul links. This solution is designed for use in the 5 GHz frequency band and offers greater channel bandwidths of up to 100 MHz, a high TDD throughput and HDD technology that allows for low latency and even more advanced RF components. The radio offers complete custom hardware for the WISP, right down to the Silicon. The radio’s core communications processing engine surpasses all of the limitations inherent to standard Wi‐Fi chips as they don’t make use of generic wireless chipsets obtained from mass producing manufacturers, but rather develop and use their own custom silicon chipset, called INVICTUS II. These chips are able to maximise performance, utilising much less channel bandwidth and drastically reducing interference. AirFiber can do all this while still maximising throughput and outperforming the competition, even at lower channel bandwidth. Furthermore, the AirFiber AF-5XHD provides enhanced protection against dust and water with its included IP67 kit.   Sign in or sign up as a new business partner to see pricing for these Airfibre...
Wireless Network solutions for integrators

Wireless Network solutions for integrators

As the Wi-Fi and wireless industry continues to grow, so does the demand for wireless systems integrators who would implement its products. However, implementation involves more than just the installation—services also include network planning and design, systems maintenance, updating, and upgrading, and client consulting and education on current solutions. For this reason, integrators often become very busy very quickly. Besides that, each new project comes with its specific challenges, while there are also recurring obstacles that wireless systems integrators face on a regular basis. These can be clients unsatisfied with their Wi-Fi experience, issues with the manufacturer’s tech support, lack of resources for operational and everyday tasks, or perhaps no good upgrades for existing wireless network setups.

Deliver intelligent and clear surveillance with these smart camera functions

Deliver intelligent and clear surveillance with these smart camera functions

We are at the point in time where technology is constantly challenging the status quo, anything from cars to household appliances are becoming more technologically advanced and your security system should not be left behind. Surveillance manufactures such as Uniview are continuously pushing the technology boundaries by embedding their security cameras with a wide range of smart functions to cater for different scenarios. Examples of these smart functions include face detection, intrusion detection, scene change, line detection, audio exception and defocus detection. Let’s zoom in on some of the smart functions you can expect for our range of UNV cameras Scene Change and Defocus Detection are two of the smart functions that Uniview’s pro – or prime series cameras have to offer. Scene change stores a reference image from the current scenery and triggers an alarm if the image changes. To expand on this, Uniview cameras with the scene change smart function will detect the change in surveillance environment affected by external factors; such as the rotation of the camera, and you can then set up certain actions to be taken when the alarm is triggered. As a result, when the camera detects a scene change such as interference or tampering, like vandals spraying liquid on the camera dome, changing the camera direction or covering the camera with a cloth, the camera triggers an alarm. Similar to scene change the defocus detection function stores a reference image from the current scene and triggers an alarm if the image focus or sharpness changes. This smart security feature from Uniview is suitable for various scenarios where you have outdoor cameras. Over...
Selecting the right cordless telephone technology for your application

Selecting the right cordless telephone technology for your application

Businesses are constantly looking for ways to make flexibility and mobility a more natural part of the work environment. As more professionals search for freedom within the workplace, it’s important to make sure that you have the right wireless solutions available to maintain connectivity within the office. Digitally enhanced cordless telephone technology (DECT) is a radio technology that uses time division multiple access (TDMA) in the 1.9GHz spectrum, to transmit radio signals to phones for voice applications whereas Wi-Fi provides a packet voice service that is delivered over IP via a Wi-Fi network, both in 2.4GHz and 5GHz. Things to consider when selecting a telephony solution for your business DECT Wi-Fi Suitable for small office, home office applications Suitable for large enterprise applications Every DECT phone must be associated with a base station. Wi-Fi phones will pick up a wireless signal directly to the device from your router. There is no need for any base stations or additional pieces of hardware. A limited number of handsets can be supported on a DECT station The number of handsets available are only limited to the range and performance of your Wi-Fi network and equipment. Scalability is possible. Mobility is limited as DECT phones are limited to range, if you want to extend the range of the DECT a repeater is required. Wi-Fi provides greater mobility as Wi-Fi phones are able to seamlessly handover from AP to AP, keeping you talking without interruption. A DECT system is a separate wireless network and does not talk to your existing Wi-Fi. Base stations and repeaters will be required. Most businesses will already have a...
