Boosting on-board Wi-Fi with Wi-Fi 6 access point

20-12-2022 | URGROUP | Automotive & Transport

URGROUP has introduced the rail certified Wi-Fi 6 AP3400 Access Point to the UK rail industry. Providing the latest Wi-Fi 6 technology, the device can deliver higher upload rates, simultaneous use of multiple devices and enhanced data throughput and bandwidth efficiency compared to Wi-Fi 5. Thanks to the latest encryption technology, part of Wi-Fi 6, the transmitted data is protected.

The dual radio modules allow simultaneous operation on the 2.4GHz and 5GHz bands for up to 200 clients. Extra cabling and costs are saved by needing just one antenna for the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequencies on the same 2x2 MU-MIMO antenna link. Thanks to its flat and compact design, the access point can be installed effortlessly in a space-saving manner.

The device is available in the UK from the company and is one of a range of on-board comms offerings manufactured by Net Module (a Belden Company) that incorporates the NB3800 5G router and the ES3300 managed switch.
