PremierWave 2050 - Reliable industrial grade 802.11ac Wi-Fi connectivity

For mission-critical industrial and commercial applications, PremierWave 2050 delivers reliable and always-on 5G Wi-Fi (802.11ac) connectivity.

Production Ready

Building and maintaining Wi-Fi connectivity software and keeping up with the pace of innovation in Wi-Fi technologies can consume significant resources in budget and time. With the PremierWave 2050, design engineers and system architects can reduce product development time and deploy their devices with confidence that their products will connect and work as expected. With optimized hardware and robust software for Wi-Fi connection management, secure system management and configuration functions, and robust Ethernet to Wi-Fi bridging the PremierWave 2050 lets you ease the deployment and support of your Wi-Fi enabled product.

Integrated Enterprise Security

Secure Wi-Fi connectivity requires supporting scalable enterprise class Wi-Fi via Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) methods and secure AES (CCMP) ciphers. To protect management interfaces, PremierWave 2050 uses SSL/TLS and SSH for data encryption and PKI/Certificate Management for authentication and key management. In addition, PremierWave 2050 offers firewall features to block ports and has NIST-certified AES encryption.

Designed for Industrial and Commercial Applications

Enterprise and industrial IoT applications are mission critical in nature and require robust, always-on, secure connectivity. Featuring a robust application stack and connection management, antenna diversity, 5 GHz Wi-Fi bands support, and the ability to operate in extended temperature environments, the PremierWave 2050 is ideal for delivering reliable wireless connectivity for a wide range of industrial and commercial applications.
