EXSW-2400 Wireless LAN Switch

Data Sheet – EXSW-2400
EXSW-2400 Wireless LAN Switch
The EXSW-2400 Wireless LAN Switch is a central component of
Extricom’s award-winning WLAN system, and the key building block
for a new generation of business-class wireless infrastructure that
scales from a single office to multi-building corporate campuses. The
EXSW-2400 provides two uplink Fast Ethernet ports to connect to
the wired LAN, and twenty-four Fast Ethernet ports with Power over
Ethernet (PoE) to attach any Extricom UltraThin Access Points.
The EXSW-2400 delivers voice, data, video, and location services
with a robust and mobile connection to any Wi-Fi client, in any
environment. The Extricom system reduces WLAN complexity, delivers
high performance with predictable service, works seamlessly with
existing wired network infrastructure, and future proofs your network
for tomorrow's multi-service demands.
The EXSW-2400 is an IEEE 802.11-compliant solution which,
combined with Extricom’s unique Channel Blanket™ architecture, revolutionizes the Wi-Fi experience for both IT administrators and wireless
users. Extricom WLAN systems simplify network design and maintenance, while also increasing system performance, capacity, and stability,
and Quality of Service for multimedia applications.
The Extricom Difference
Simpler Design and
Maintenance
The Extricom WLAN System reduces the complexity of RF surveys and cell planning. Extricom’s UltraThin
APs are placed where needed for best coverage and do not require configuration. All APs transmit
and receive on the same channel in the Channel Blanket architecture, and the Extricom WLAN Switch
coordinates the connected APs to eliminate co-channel interference.
Superior Wireless
Connectivity
With every AP on the same channel, the Extricom switch receives multiple copies of each client transmission
and chooses the best AP to transmit the reply, making the system highly resilient to RF interference and
ensuring the highest possible throughput.
Continuous Mobility
Client devices move anywhere in the Extricom Channel Blanket without experiencing inter-AP handoffs, reauthentication, or latency, enabling seamless mobility for enterprise wireless LANs.
Centralized Access
Extricom switches coordinate media access for all of the connected APs and eliminate co-channel
interference, which leads to higher performance and more stable operation under heavy load.
Centralized Power
The Extricom WLAN switch supplies power for all the connected Extricom UltraThin APs through built-in
PoE, eliminating the need for AC power at the APs. The EXSW-2400 supports up to twenty-four Extricom
4-radio UltraThin APs with a single standard 802.3af POE connection.
Service Flexibility
Extricom’s multi-layer, multi-channel architecture with overlapping Channel Blankets provides physical
segregation of wireless clients and applications. Voice clients can be isolated on one channel, data clients
use another, and legacy 802.11b clients can be separated from newer 802.11n clients. This flexible
approach translates into more stable and predictable wireless LAN performance and the ability to offer
service level guarantees.
TrueReuse
TrueReuse™, an Extricom patented technology, increases capacity by permitting simultaneous transmission
on the same channel within the Channel Blanket.
