The RS900W family are wireless Ethernet switches which integrate IEEE 802.11b/g secure wireless LAN, with fully managed Ethernet switches and optional serial server functionality. With the installation of the RS900W series of wireless LAN products, a network designer will achieve the integration of wired and wireless networks. The RS900W product family can be configured as an access point, client, or bridge device.

Wireless Ethernet with integrated 8-port managed switch and 128-bit encryption.

Due to a change in regulations governing wireless testing and certification in Europe, the RS9xxW products can no longer be sold into European countries. For excellent Industrial Wireless LAN solutions that meet the latest regulations, please check out our SCALANCE W Industrial Wireless LAN portfolio.
