Planet WL-3560 - 54/108Mbps standard 11g PCMCIA Wireless LAN Adapter


Description
   The WL-3560 is an IEEE 802.11g Wireless PCMCIA card that can operate in either Ad-Hoc mode (Point to Point/Point to Multipoint without an Access Point) or Infrastructure mode (Point to Point/Point to Multipoint with an Access Point). IEEE 802.11g uses 2.4GHz frequency band, the same as IEEE 802.11b; but it provides almost 5 times throughput rate than 802.11b. With the latest innovative Super G technology integrated, the maximum data rate of WL-3560 is 108Mbps, which doubles the speed of standard 802.11g. WL-3560 is also backward compatible and interoperable with IEEE 802.11b compliant wireless devices. This dual-standard support allows for greater flexibility of deployment and use.

   The WL-3560 supports both 64/128-bit WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) for securing wireless network connections. The driver and utility supports most popular operating systems: Windows 98SE/ME/2000/XP/Server 2003. With advanced features and high performance capability, the WL-3560 is an excellent choice for constructing a wide range of wireless solutions.
Product Application
WL-3560 offers a fast, reliable, cost-effective solution for wireless client access to the network in applications like these:
  Remote access to corporate network information
E-mail, file transfer and terminal emulation.
  Difficult-to-wire environments
Historical or old buildings, asbestos installations, and open areas where wiring is difficult to employ.
  Frequently changing environments
Retailers, manufacturers and banks who frequently rearrange the workplace and change locations.
  Temporary LANs for special projects or peak time
Trade shows, Sports events, exhibitions and construction sites need temporary setup for a short time period. Retailers, airline and shipping companies need additional workstations for a peak period. Auditors requiring workgroups at customer sites.
  SOHO (Small Office and Home Office) users
SOHO users requiring quick and easy installation of a small computer network.
  High security connection
Wireless network security installs quickly and provides the flexibility to reconfigure easily.
