The award-winning Extricom Wireless LAN System incorporates multiple breakthrough innovations in a system that raises the bar for WLAN performance, flexibility, and ease of ownership. Groundbreaking architectural thinking gives you a solution that is fully IEEE 802.11a/b/g/
At the heart of the Extricom solution is a simple yet powerful idea: eliminate the concept of cell-planning, and replace it with Channel Blanket™ architecture. In the Channel Blanket, each Wi-Fi radio channel is used on every access point to create continuous "blankets" of coverage.
In addition to tracking Wi-Fi enabled devices, such as tablets and smartphones, The Extricom-Ekahau solution can track small, battery-powered Wi-Fi tags that can be mounted to high-value assets or carried by people. Wristwatch sized and credit-card sized tags are available for providing improved safety and security to staff and the credit-card sized tag also acts as a Wi-Fi pager with two-way communications, and an OLED display.
Unlike RFID which is limited to tracking tags only where the RFID readers are, the Extricom-Ekahau solution can track the tags and devices anywhere within the facility, in real-time. The Extricom-Ekahau solution is available today from Extricom sales representatives globally.
