HP 501 Wireless Client Bridge Series

Product overview

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.
  • Link up to 15 Ethernet device or an RS232 serial device to a wireless network at Gigabit speeds
  • Dual-band three spatial stream MIMO radio running up to 1.3Gb/s
  • Supports IEEE 802.11b/g/n and 802.11a/n/ac WLAN networks
  • Fast roaming between access points
  • Web-based configuration as well as managed via HP Intelligent Management Center

What's new

The client bridge is a WLAN device that has an integrated 802.11ac radio, and replaces the current M111 bridge. This bridge is used to enable non wireless devices with wireless communication as well as extend Ethernet wired networks as this device can link a LAN segment to another LAN segment via an access point.
  • Need to extend wired Ethernet connectivity through WLAN Access Point connection
  • Solves slow WLAN communications and needs higher bandwidth (for HD Video applications)via the new 802.11ac high bandwidth/high throughput 1.3 GbE speed
  • Transforms wired Ethernet devices into an up to date WLAN enabled device
  • 802.11 ac provides 1.3 GbE connect rate
  • Provides 3x Wi-Fi communications performance increase compared to 802.11n technology
  • State-of-the-Art, three stream technology, provides the performance required today and in the future, at the price of two stream products offered from HP competitors
