Devices with no native wireless support can be easily integrated into a wireless LAN (WLAN) using the HP 501 Wireless Client Bridge. The HP 501 Wireless Client Bridge can bridge up to 15 Ethernet client device running a legacy networking protocol to the WLAN, extending wireless network access to a wide range of protocols.
An integrated serial to TCP/IP converter enables a RS-232 asynchronous terminal device to communicate with a compatible station on the network. Strong enterprise-class layered security features, including an IEEE 802.1X supplicant, protect the network from intrusions.
Hardware-accelerated encryption provides high performance when using WPA2/AES security. It enables organizations to unwire a broad range of computing devices and realize the benefits of mobility.
Electronic cash registers, scales, servers, printers, medical equipment, manufacturing machinery and other devices can be deployed in any location where a WLAN signal is available, eliminating the time and expense of installing Ethernet cable for network access. The HP 501 Wireless Client Bridge integrates into the HP Mobility System and it is interoperable with any IEEE 802.11b/g/n or 802.11a/n/ac WLAN network infrastructure from HP or any other vendor.
