Specialty, High-Gain and Directional Antennas  
Connect802 resells antennas from several major manufacturers and distributors. We have, literally, hundreds of specialty antennas, high-gain antennas and directional patch and panel antennas from which to choose when developing a system design. When you need a particular antenna to limit signal spillover outside a building, provide high-gain for long-distance point-to-point links, or push signals through obstructive walls or inventory stacked on shelves - We've Got You Covered!
Wireshark Protocol Analysis Specialty Products  

Connect802 is your source for the Wireshark AirPcap 802.11a/b/g/n USB capture adapter that allows Wireshark to capture and analyze native 802.11 data, control and management packets. In addition, Connect802 has dual-band (2.4 GHz and 5 GHz) antennas for use with AirPcap.

On the wire, the Dualcomm GigE Port-Mirroring Switch is the right choice for packet capture in-line between an access point and a wireless LAN switch, server, or any other Ethernet "tap" protocol analysis application.


Connect802 "Legacy" Equipment

If you're considering any of the equipment manufacturer's below, be sure to talk to Connect802 about how we can work with you both as a design and consulting partner and as a resale source as well.

At Connect802 we constantly evaluate the various wireless network product offerings in the marketplace. Over the years, as technology has evolved, our opinion regarding the best product solution for a particular application has evolved too. The manufacturer with the best technology solution five years ago might not be the leader today.

The Connect802 website has been on-line for over a decade and there are numerous inbound links to pages in the site. Instead of simply deleting pages and defeating years of search engine positioning and inbound linking we have left these pages in place and marked them as a "Legacy Website Page".

In many cases we are able to provide you with equipment sales and configuration support if you're expanding an existing wireless network with one of the "legacy" products. In every case we're ready to discuss your requirements and tell you our opinion regarding what we feel is the best solution today.

The Aruba Networks Mobility System  

When a project involves "carpeted office space" and demands the highest levels of security, intricate and broad-reaching user and group access control and policy enforcement, and rigorous, active intrusion detection, prevention and countermeasures - we think of the Aruba Networks Mobility System first.

CAMMS™ - Command Anywhere Media Management System  
Global Mesh Technology brings advanced, inter-agency communications to law enforcement, firefighters and emergency responders. Using the CAMMS software everyone can view surveillance cameras, engage in video conferences from their own webcams, share and annotate maps and files with a multi-user whiteboard - and much more! The CAMMS Distributed Field Kit extends wireless mesh communications capabilities over a Wi-Fi, 4.9 GHz and dual-carrier 3G cellular integrated connection for complete wireless connectivity at an incident scene. If you're involved in public safety or first response you absolutely have to see CAMMS in action.
Colubris Networks Tactical Wireless Solutions  
With one of the most capable Wi-Fi client access and outdoor backhaul point-to-point and point-to-multi-point 802.11a/b/g/n dual-radio systems on the market, Colubris Networks is our first choice for solid Wi-Fi performance, ease-of-installation, configuration and management, and integrated in-building and outdoor systems. The Colubris product line and the Proxim ORiNOCO product line are both excellent products and the selection between the two will depend on subtle but significant differences in specific features.
Firetide Mesh Routers
Firetide HotPort Multi-Service Mesh Network radios create a mesh backhaul "cloud". As a backhaul technology, the "cloud" allows for the connection of devices (notably IP cameras and 802.11a/b/g/n access points).

Meraki Wireless with Hosted Management

Meraki provides a very low-cost alternative for 802.11b/g and 802.11n wireless networks that are able to do without the benefits of a locally owned wireless LAN controller appliance and that can be implemented without specialized antenna systems. All Meraki 802.11b/g and Meraki 802.11n access points are managed through server software hosted at a Meraki data center. The Meraki access points contact the Meraki data center for coniguration and management.

Nomadix Visitor Access Gateways  
The Nomadix Visitor Access Gateway provides advanced, broad-reaching visitor and guest access controls that go far beyond the basic captive portal web login page that's standard with many wireless LAN switch centralized management systems. When a project requires a visitor access system that brings advanced capabilities to the network, Connect802 recommends the Nomadix product line.
Planet Technology  

Planet Technology provides very cost-effective stand-alone access point and broadband router solutions as well as fiber-to-copper media conversion equipment, Layer 2 Ethernet switches and related ancillary network infrastructure equipment.

  • Ethernet switches to build the wired distribution system for in-building Wi-Fi networks
  • Power-over-Ethernet injectors and splitters to power each Wi-Fi access point
Proxim ORiNOCO Wi-Fi and WiMAX Equipment  
The Proxim ORiNOCO product line is unique in that the radio equipment integrates both 802.11 Wi-Fi client connectivity and 802.16 WiMAX backhaul capabilities. In addition to providing a full-featured stand-alone 802.11a/b/g access point with central management capabilities the Proxim radios also support licensed 4.9 GHz public safety operation. The Proxim ORiNOCO product line and the Colubris product line are both excellent products and the selection between the two will depend on subtle but significant differences in specific features.
Symbol / Motorola Wireless Solutions
Symbol, now owned by Motorola, provides a centralized wireless LAN switch system with indoor and outdoor access points. In conjunction with Symbol handheld UPC and RFID scanners the Symbol solution is often seen in the warehouse and manufacturing space.
Strix Systems Access/ONE Outdoor/Indoor Mesh  

Outdoor Metro-Area or campus-wide wireless deployment, both for 802.11a/b/g/n public/private mobile, roaming access and for licensed 4.9 GHz public safety is supported by Connect802's resale relationship with Strix Systems. The Access/ONE line of outdoor and indoor mesh routers is unique in the industry. With up to six separate radios in a single, integrated outdoor chassis, Strix Systems provides maximum throughput and capacity over a large geographic area.

  • A Complete, Centrally Managed Outdoor Mesh Router and 802.11 Client Access System
  • In-building Extension with the Strix Indoor Wireless System (Strix IWS)
  • Modular, combined-function units for mesh routing backhaul with Wi-Fi client access

Trapeze Networks Wireless LAN Switching
Trapeze Networks provides a wireless LAN switch solution that resembles an Aruba Networks system in many features and capabilities. Only by carefully contrasting the Aruba Networks Mobility Controller against the Trapeze solution will the difference be seen.
Tropos Networks Outdoor Mesh  
Tropos Networks provides a line of very easy-to-deploy and configure outdoor wireless radios. They have a model with a single-radio that performs 802.11 client services and backhaul communications simultaneously and a dual-radio unit in which one radio provides 802.11b/g client access and the second radio receives and transmits data from and to the backhaul "cloud".
ValuePoint Networks Access Points and Gateways  
ValuePoint networks has a line of access points and visitor access gateway products that provide a low-cost entry into the commercial wireless LAN marketplace.
Video Surveillance IP Camera Systems

We bring our 802.11 wireless LAN and 802.16 WiMAX experience to the design of surveillance camera systems providing an integrated solution that no competitor can surpass.
WatchGuard Firebox Firewall Appliances  
WatchGuard firewall appliances provide complete, policy-based rules enforcement for user access. While Connect EZ Turnkey Wireless LAN Bundles that use the Aruba Mobility System have the same level of advanced security available in the Mobility Controller itself, a Watchguard firewall can be added to Connect EZ Solution Suites built around non-Aruba hardware to give them, to the highest level of security. There are even some features that a WatchGuard firewall can bring to an Aruba Mobility Controller.
