Motorola Flagship RF Switch Enables Wi-Fi Location Services, Enhanced Management and Security

5/23/07 - Motorola, Inc. (NYSE: MOT) announced several new enhancements to its flagship, enterprise-class RFS7000 RF Switch to support location services, management and security services. The RFS7000 can support Motorola and third- party vendor services, providing operational value to large businesses requiring a wireless LAN for their enterprise mobility needs.

"As Wi-Fi networks become critical to business operations, we continue to rapidly enable more innovative ways to utilize the networks with easy to deploy add-on enterprise mobility services," said Sujai Hajela, vice president and general manager of enterprise WLAN, Motorola Enterprise Mobility business. "With the RFS7000 RF Switch, large businesses in carpeted offices, healthcare, warehousing and distribution, manufacturing, education, retail and government can deploy location services to track high-value asset and resources to increase utilization and safety."

The RFS7000 provides locationing capability, enabling real-time tracking of Wi-Fi devices and active tags to help simplify asset tracking. With this service, businesses have the ability to locate employees for safety or track high-value and mission-critical assets to increase their utilization. In a healthcare setting, locationing services could be used to track life-saving crash carts, transfusion pumps, defibrillators, portable X-ray and dialysis machines. Locationing can also be used to find and track inventory for customers, providing better and faster service.

"We needed a solution for pin-pointing the location of cars in a parking lot in real-time," said Joseph Owusu, partner, Mieloo & Alexander. "We selected Motorola's Wi-Fi network infrastructure for its ability to integrate third-party ultra wideband (UWB) sensors that will work both indoors and outdoors."

Motorola's comprehensive integrated management suite -- comprised of a LAN planner and mobility services platform -- is a set of tools to help enterprises more easily and centrally plan, deploy, manage and secure their RF infrastructure and environment. The RF management module simplifies a business' RF environment. In addition, the ability to locate lost mobile devices and rogue access points greatly enhances the value of the management suite to enterprises.

Motorola's integrated wireless intrusion protection system (Wireless IPS) solution detects and locates rogue devices, protecting the network against denial-of-service attacks, as well as providing compliance reporting and advanced forensics. In addition, Motorola's comprehensive sensor-based Wireless IPS monitors, detects, protects and prevents intrusions to a wireless network. The RFS7000 further enhances the security features to deliver mobile client-based intrusion detection that can disable difficult to detect rogue mobile clients and devices to help ensure maximum up-time and peak performance of the network.

The RFS7000 is the industry's first radio frequency (RF) wireless switch that bridges the gap between Wi-Fi and RFID, future RF technologies and indoor and outdoor wireless networks. The enterprise-class RF Switch is 802.11n- ready, capable of supporting 256 802.11a/b/g access points, and enables a new switch clustering concept, providing redundancy and high-performance scalability for up to 3,000 access points.

Motorola's RFS7000 is part of the end-to-end enterprise WLAN product suite, enabling seamless enterprise mobility indoors. Enterprise WLAN is part of Motorola's MOTOwi4(TM) portfolio of innovative wireless broadband solutions and services that complement and complete IP networks. Delivering IP coverage to virtually all spaces both indoors and outdoors, the MOTOwi4 portfolio includes fixed broadband, mesh, broadband over powerline, WiMAX and enterprise WLAN solutions for private and public networks.
