Faster Roaming with MOXA's Controllers - WAC 1001

Product Announcement from Moxa Inc.

Faster Roaming with MOXA's Controllers - WAC 1001-Image

The WAC-1001 wireless controller, generally located at the on-site cabinet or the control center, shrinks handover time by reducing the time spent on searching for APs, re-association, and re-authentication to a minimum. The WAC-1001 provides efficient, centralized management and control by allowing clients to communicate with multiple APs and achieve a 50 ms roaming time. This new technology improves hand-over determinism to enable smoother data transmissions for a variety of mobile applications, and is especially well suited for train-to-ground communications.

Video: Comparison between 50 ms and 500 ms wireless roaming

This video demonstrates how wireless (WiFi) data connections are affected when roaming between access points, first with 500 ms handover times, then with 50 ms handover times. With 50 ms roaming, the wireless connection is seamless and uninterrupted.
