IR Data Announces Mesh Network Attach Storage for the WAP900 Mesh Router

Terabytes of WiFi Accessible Network Storage

COSTA MESA, CA--(Marketwire - August 13, 2007) - IR Data Corporation today announced the addition of a Mesh Network Attach Storage (Mesh-NAS) version of the WAP900 mesh router. Up to 20 Terabytes of distributed network storage capability are available anywhere within the network using a WiFi enabled computer. When a new WAP900 is added to an existing network, the local storage is automatically attached to the overall network storage capacity.

Utilizing high speed packet switching technology combined with our Radio Optimized Routing Protocol provides network accessible streaming video using any WiFi enable device, from anywhere within network. Coverage of over 100 square miles for applications like Voice over IP and Video over IP is readily accommodated. Data is relayed between the integrated WiFi access points utilizing a broadband 900MHz mesh network, so no data cables are ever required. The extremely low latency switched mesh network provides an ideal solution for data intensive real-time applications.

ABOUT THE WAP900 -- Mesh NAS version

The systems features a 902-928MHz, broadband mesh radio, for connectivity between units and a 2.4GHz, 802.11/g access point for user level service. The Mesh-NAS version of the WAP900 utilizes a high performance SATA interface disk drive. The mesh optimized packet switching technology provides extremely high throughput rates over very long distances, unlike typical WiFi based mesh systems. Utilizing an omni-directional antenna, radio links of three miles between units are possible. When extended line of sight ranges of up to twenty miles are needed, the directional antenna option provides outstanding network configuration flexibility. The authentication and encryption system ensures that only authorized users are permitted network access.
