Industrial grade 802.11a/b/g/n mini PCI Express Card

2.4 / 5 GHz industrial wireless LAN Access Point only choice

     Introduction of Products

Bointec CPE902A included industrial grade chipset, is a single-chip, dual-band (2.4/5 GHz), 2-stream 11n solution. With PCIe interface, It packs the Atheros Signal-Sustain Technology (SST) technology that enhances rate-over-range performance. Features are enabled by 802.11n including LDPC, TxBF and MLD.
Impressively increase in rate-over-range of ~+100% at short range, ~+50% at mid range and ~+25% at long range.
Bointec CPE902A consumes less power in every operation mode active TX, active RX, idle associated and sleep than other Atheros previous chipsets. It keeps the notebook and other computing platforms running
much longer on a single battery-charge, while providing TCP throughput of more than 200 Mbps when used in 2x2 mode.
Bointec CPE902A is also optimized for Atheros Direct Connect™ P2P applications. With its Fast Channel Switch (FCS) feature, the channel switching time between the 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands is reduced from
10 ms to as little as 1 ms.
