More and more WLAN applications are being used in the field of automation. The IEEE 802.11n standard with the OpenBAT Family enables data rates of up to 450 Mbit/s while simultaneously extending the range and stability of wireless transmissions. Centralized management guarantees secure operation in an industrial network and provides the necessary overview. The Hirschmann BAT-Controller WLC was especially developed for this purpose. There is no need to replace existing Hirschmann access points from the BAT range with new devices designed to use controllers, these access points can be operated either with or without controllers. This means that your WLAN can be extended step by step, when it becomes necessary, supplemented by a Hirschmann BAT-Controller WLC.
