Understanding the Decibel

When working with wireless, people come across several somewhat confusing concepts. To people who work with wireless day in and day out, this may seem commonplace. Though, to those that are not immersed in the wireless industry, these concepts can seem foreign and complicated. One of these is the decibel (abbreviated dB).

Wireless Networking Limits - Part 3 of 3 - Gigabit Cable Lengths

At AvaLAN Wireless, we have done our best to design our products in such a way as to push the limits of possibility, sometimes even venturing into the realms of the unfathomable. However, the Laws of Physics and the Universe still govern much of what we can and cannot do. We still have limits. The trick to making the most of our products is to know those limits. Knowing your limitations is not just beneficial to your project, it is crucial to its success. Knowing your limitations will save you time, money, effort, and especially frustration.

Wireless Networking Limits - Part 1 of 3 - Line of Sight

At AvaLAN Wireless, we have done our best to design our products in such a way as to push the limits of possibility, sometimes even venturing into the realms of the unfathomable. However, the Laws of Physics and the Universe still govern much of what we can and cannot do. We still have limits. The trick to making the most of our products is to know those limits. Knowing your limitations is not just beneficial to your project, it is crucial to its success. Knowing your limitations will save you time, money, effort, and especially frustration. Today I would like to talk about some of the basic limitations of the 300Mbps 5.8GHz Radios (AW58300HTA, AW58300HTS, and AW58300HTP-PAIR). These include line of sight, throughput and Gigabit cable lengths. In Part 1, we will discuss the line of site limitations.

On the Applications of an AvaLAN Wireless Net Appliance

The AvaLAN Wireless NetAppliance is a unique device that, in a nutshell, acts as a “Layer 2 Tunneling Ethernet Packet Encryptor”. It creates a NIST certified FIPS 140-2 Level 2 encrypted Virtual Private Network (VPN) that can connect two Local Area Networks (LAN) by tunneling through an unsecured Wide Area Network (WAN) such as the internet. This NetAppliance performs the same functions of far more expensive and complex equipment and software in a simple, cost effective, and efficient manner.
