Legacy client devices can be easily integrated into a wireless LAN (WLAN) using the HP M111 Client Bridge. The M111 Client Bridge can bridge an Ethernet client device running a legacy networking protocol to the WLAN, extending wireless network access to a wide range of DECnet, IPX, AppleTalk, and other devices.
An integrated serial to TCP/IP converter enables a TIA-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), WPA or WEP security.
Quality of Service (QoS)
IEEE 802.1p prioritization: delivers data to devices based on the priority and type of traffic
Wireless: - L2/L3/L4 classification: IEEE 802.1p VLAN priority, SpectraLink SVP, DiffServ, VTP/TCP, and Post . - Wi-Fi MultiMedia (WMM), IEEE 802.11e EDCF, and Service-Aware priority assigned by VSC. - Maximum VoIP call capacity: 12 active calls on IEEE 802.11a/b/g.
Network management: - SNMP v2c, SNMP v3, MIB-II with Traps, and RADIUS Authentication Client MIB (RFC 2618). - Embedded HTML management tool with secure access (SSL and VPN). - Scheduled configuration and firmware upgrades from central server.
Diagnostic: - Client event log records association, authentication, and DHCP events. - Packet capture tool for Ethernet and IEEE 802.11 interfaces (PCAP format). - Data rate matrix.
RF management: - Automatically selects channel on power-up and continuously improves channel selection based on background interference scan. - Configurable background rogue scanning. - Automatically adjusts transmit power to reduce interference.
Auto-MDIX: automatically adjusts forstraight-through or crossover cables on all 10/100ports
IEEE 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) support: simplifies deployment and dramatically reduces installation costs by helping to eliminate the time and cost involved in supplying local power at each access point location
Anywhere, anytime wireless coverage: - Single IEEE 802.11a/b/g access points. - Radio software-selectable configuration of frequency bands. - Self-healing, self-optimizing local mesh extends network availability . - Wi-Fi Alliance certified for interoperability with all 802.11a/b/g client devices. - IEEE 802.3af PoE or external power cord on selected models .
Interoperability: Wi-Fi Alliance certifications, including IEEE 802.11g Wi-Fi and WPA2 to help ensure multivendor interoperability
Virtual Service Communities (VSCs): - Up to 16 SSIDs, each with a unique MAC address, and configurable SSID broadcasts . - Individual security and QoS profiles per VSC . - Configurable DTIM and minimum data rate per VSC. - Each VSC mapped to separate IEEE 802.1Q VLANs. - WMM and/or WMM-PS. - Security filter. - IP filter.
AP client access control functions: - IEEE 802.1X authentication using EAP-SIM, EAP-FAST, EAP-TLS, EAP-TTLS, and PEAP. - MAC address authentication using local or RADIUS access lists. - RADIUS AAA using EAP-MD5, PAP, CHAP, and MS-CHAPv2. - RADIUS Client (RFC 2865 and 2866) with location-aware support. - Layer 2 wireless client isolation.
Location flexibility: - 100 mW radio and antenna diversity provide excellent range. - Configurable IEEE 802.11 a/b/g radio with external antenna connectors. - Plenum rated. - Centrally manageable as part of the HP ProCurve Intelligent Mobility system.
Choice of IEEE 802.11i, WPA2, or WPA: locks out unauthorized wireless access by authenticating users prior to granting network access; robust Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) or Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) encryption secures the data integrity of wireless traffic
Local wireless bridge client traffic filtering: when enabled, prevents communication between wireless devices associated with the same access point
IEEE 802.1X: provides port-based user authentication with support for Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) MD5, TLS, TTLS, and PEAP with choice of AES, TKIP, and static or dynamic WEP encryption for protecting wireless traffic between authenticated clients and the access point
The HP M111 Client Bridge bridges an Ethernet LAN segment, supporting a wide range of DECnet, IPX, Appletalk and other devices, to 802.11 a/b/g WLAN providing 802.1X PEAP authentication and up to WPA2 security without upgrading the clients.
