HP Unveils 900 Mbps Enterprise Wi-Fi

Demand for faster access keeps prompting vendors to up the ante in the wi-fi sector.

The refrain from business users is clear: we need faster Internet access. HP's latest offering is an effort to grab marketshare in the ultra-fast Wi-Fi sector. Sean Michael Kerner reports.

Demand for Wi-Fi bandwidth continues to grow, which is why networking vendors continue to up the ante when it comes to Wi-Fi performance.

HP this week is announcing new Mobile Access Solution access points that hit a new top-end of performance in the HP portfolio. The new HP Wi-Fi access points can deliver up to 900 Mb/s of signaling capacity for enterprise users.

There are three new access points in total, including the dual-radio MSM460 and MSM466, which both have three spatial streams and 450 Mb/s per radio for 900 Mbs in total capacity. There is also the dual spatial stream SMSM430, which can deliver up to 600 Mb/s in total.

Jeff Schwartz, senior product manager for mobility and wireless at HP Networking told InternetNews.com MSM460 and MSM466 are 3x3 arrays.

"So that's three transmitters, three receivers and three spatial arrays to get to 450 Mb/s per radio," Schwartz said.
