Broadening the options of how and where to get the job done, Toshiba's wireless LAN products offer performance levels comparable to wired environments, so IT managers can rest easy knowing the troops will be productive and their documents will be secure.
With the ability to move from their own office to a different building with notebook in hand, users are given access to all of the files and information they may need, including shared files, information contained on a corporate intranet, as well as the Internet and e-mail.
In addition, wireless LAN greatly decreases the installation and maintenance costs of network connection in areas where wired network cabling would be difficult to deploy and in the case of frequent employee additions or office switching.
Wireless LAN Access Point
Providing solutions for the corporate IT manager, Toshiba's Wireless LAN Access Point (Model No. PA3065U-1ETC) offers investment protection and lowered network management cost. The included software and documentation makes configuration of the access point simple, and allows the IT manager to centrally manage, control and remotely monitor the enterprise-wide network.
Offering high-speed wireless networking at 11 Mbit/s per PC card, the wireless LAN access point can accommodate roughly 128 mainstream users within a 100- to 300-foot distance indoors, or a 1,500-foot distance outdoors. It is equipped with dual PC card slots, which doubles the network capacity.
The access point is compatible with other manufacturers' high-speed IEEE 802.11b compliant systems and is compliant with the WECA Wi-Fi standard. It can be used for both portable computers, such as Toshiba's new Satellite Pro(R) 4600 and Tecra(R) 8200 with integrated Wi-Fi and desktop computers.
Toshiba's Wireless LAN Access Point comes with a one-year standard warranty and telephone technical support through Toshiba's InTouch(SM) Center, available 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
Access Point Installation
Providing a hassle-free option for creating a wire-free network, Toshiba offers installation services for its wireless LAN products. A Toshiba representative will come to the customer's location, do a site survey to determine the best setup of the access points, then install and configure them. Pricing for the service is determined by the site survey and will vary based on the amount of hardware involved.
Wireless LAN PC Card
Enabling true freedom from the restraints of a desk, Toshiba's Wireless LAN PC Card delivers the same performance that a wired system would, but provides the added luxury of ultra-mobility. This PC card is compatible with other manufacturers' high-speed IEEE 802.11b compliant systems and is compliant with the WECA Wi-Fi standard.
It will work in any notebook with the following minimum configurations: 80486 or later processor, 4MB of free disk space, 8MB of RAM (16MB or more recommended) and a CD-ROM. It is compatible with Microsoft(R) Windows(R) 95, Windows 98, Windows Millennium, Windows 2000 and Windows NT 4.0.
The card has a 64-bit encryption level, providing the required security, and is supported by SPANworks productivity software for spontaneous networking applications and enhanced user productivity.
