A wireless access point (AP) can provide network access to locations that are difficult or impossible to reach with a wired solution. In mobile, outdoor, and industrial settings, not just any wireless AP will do the job. In a wireless local area network (WLAN), an access point is a station that connects users to the rest of the network and can serve multiple users within a defined network area. They can be used to connect vehicles, cameras, and other devices to your network. Our industrial wireless access points support operating in several different modes: AP, Client, Bridge, Router, and Repeater Mode. These different modes allow for a wide variety of wireless applications that can be required in an industrial setting.

Wireless networks are inherently not as secure as wired networks, so security features in a wireless access point are highly recommended.
