HP 425 802.11n Dual Radio Access Point Series

Product overview

Working in unison with HP controllers, the HP 425 802.11n Dual Radio Access Point Series delivers high-performance networking solutions. The enhanced controller architecture scales to IEEE 802.11n without requiring a controller replacement. The controller provides advanced radio resource management (RRM), including client load balancing and interference mitigation. The HP wireless controllers support a fast-roaming capability—an important feature, especially for VoIP communications.

The HP 425 access point works in managed mode with an HP wireless LAN controller. The access points provide RF spectrum analysis with detection and classification of non-IEEE 802.11 interference, and have the ability to automatically avoid interference. Wireless security is comprehensive with integrated wireless IDS and support for internal and external authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) servers; built-in stateful firewall; per-user VLAN mapping; and authentication.

In addition to working with the HP MSM controllers, the access points work with the new HP 10500/7500 20G Unified Wired-WLAN Module, the HP 800 Series Unified Wired-WLAN Switch, and the HP WX5002/5004 wireless controllers.
