Hewlett Packard HP 501 WIRELESS CLIENT BRIDGE (J9835A)Overview
Devices with no native wireless support can be easily integrated into a wireless LAN WLAN using the HP 501 Wireless Client Bridge. The HP 501 Wireless Client Bridge can bridge up to 15 Ethernet client device running a legacy networking protocol to the WLAN, extending wireless network access to a wide range of protocols. An integrated serial to TCP/IP converter enables a RS-232 asynchronous terminal device to communicate with a compatible station on the network. Strong enterprise-class layered security features, including an IEEE 802.1X supplicant, protect the network from intrusions. Hardware-accelerated encryption provides high performance when using WPA2/AES security. It enables organizations to unwire a broad range of computing devices and realize the benefits of mobility. Electronic cash registers, scales, servers, printers, medical equipment, manufacturing machinery and other devices can be deployed in any location where a WLAN signal is available, eliminating the time and expense of installing Ethernet cable for network access. The HP 501 Wireless Client Bridge integrates into the HP Mobility System and it is interoperable with any IEEE 802.11b/g/n or 802.11a/n/ac WLAN network infrastructure from HP or any other vendor.
Quality of Service QoS
• Network management: - SNMP v2c, SNMP v3, MIB-II with Traps, and RADIUS Authentication Client MIB RFC 2618. - Embedded HTML management tool with secure access. - Scheduled configuration and firmware upgrades via network management station.
• IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet PoE support: - simplifies deployment and dramatically reduces installation costs by helping to eliminate the time and cost involved in supplying local power at each client bridge.
• Anywhere, anytime wireless coverage: - provides single IEEE 802.11a/b/g/n/ac radio client bridge. - offers radio software-selectable configuration of frequency bands. - utilizes IEEE 802.3af PoE or local power supply.
• IEEE 802.1X support: - provides user authentication with support for Extensible Authentication Protocol EAP TLS and PEAP with choice of AES, TKIP, and WEP encryption for protecting wireless traffic between authenticated clients and the access point.
