Trapeze Networks recently launched the second phase of its smart mobile technology, a set of high-performance software and hardware solutions capable of supporting large-scale enterprise wireless LAN deployments and mission-critical applications.

This includes the high-capacity MX-2800 Controller, which is a 28 Gbit/s controller, the Advanced Mobility System Software (MSS) and MP-432, the high performance enterprise-class access point for high-bandwidth 802.11n networks. It is expected that the second phase of the Smart Mobile technology will be available in regional markets in the first quarter of 2008.

"With the new generation of smart mobile technology, Trapeze Networks has made wireless LAN a more attractive, cost-efficient platform for enterprise network infrastructure. It is now possible for enterprise-wide deployment of wireless networks that would equal or even exceed wired networks in terms of scalability, performance, security, reliability and cost efficiency," said Feras Zeidan (pictured), regional manager MEA for Trapeze.

The MX-2800 provides 28 Gbit/s of throughput via two 10Gbit and eight 1Gbit ports. It supports 512 active access points and 12,000 active client devices, including laptops, WiFi phones and active RFID tags.

The MX-2800 employs dedicated high-performance hardware to perform both wireless and wired data processing in chips expressly designed for these functions.

Compatible with all Trapeze MC controllers, the MSS enhancements enable all switches to act collectively as a single virtual switch, allowing every switch to serve as back-up for any other.

The dual-radio MP-432 utilises 802.11n features and can simultaneously operate in 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands at 300Mbytes/sec per band, for a total data rate of 600 Mbytes/sec.

MP-432 access points can also operate with existing Trapeze MX switches, enabling customers to deploy 802.11n. The MP-432 also supports the emerging 802.3at Power over Ethernet (PoE) standard, and runs with existing 802.3af PoE.
