2012 Edison Awards Recognize Motorola Solutions' WLAN Access Point
NEW YORK --(Business Wire)--
Solutions, Inc. (NYSE: MSI (News - Alert)), a leading provider of
mission-critical communications solutions, won the Bronze award at the
2012 Edison Best New Product Awards for its innovative AP
6511 wall plate. The distinguished awards symbolize the persistence
and excellence personified by Thomas Alva Edison, inspiring America's
drive to remain in the forefront of innovation, creativity and ingenuity
in the global economy. The awards were presented at the Edison Awards
Gala on April 26 in New York.
With the explosive growth in Wi-Fi-enabled devices, multi-dwelling unit
operators need a wireless local area network (WLAN) solution suited for
different environments. The design of the AP 6511 wall plate allows the
WLAN to be installed in minutes in any location to support a range of
mobile devices such as laptops, tablets and smartphones. Purposely
designed for hotels, dormitories, apartment buildings and long-term care
facilities, each AP uses existing CAT 5/6 cabling and covers multiple
rooms with minimal site planning.
The AP 6511 was designed to be installed in any location: plenum
space, flush to a wall surface, or over a structured wiring telecom
box. Its aesthetically appealing, modular form factor and "snap-on"
installation help drive down deployment costs.
The AP 6511 includes an intelligent self-optimizing Virtual Controller
code, which allows a small property to gain the benefits of acentral
controller - automatic adoption, central configuration and status, and
automatic RF management - without the cost of a dedicated RF switch.
The AP 6511 makes it easy for multi-dwelling units to extend high
speed 802.11 a/b/g/n Wi-Fi service with high performance coverage in
every room despite high radio frequency and other obstructions.
Motorola's (News - Alert) WiNG
5 architecture eliminates choke points faced by traditional
hub-and-spoke architectures by using quality of service (QoS),
mobility, dynamic RF management and security at the edge for mobile
applications such as video and voice.
The record number of nominees received for the 2012 Edison Awards were
judged by more than 3,000 senior business executives and academics
from across the nation whose votes acknowledge the finalists' success
in meeting the award criteria of concept, value, delivery and impact.

"Winning the Bronze at the 2012 Edison Awards is a significant
achievement for everyone involved in creating and perfecting the AP
6511. Conventional access points simply weren't designed for
multi-dwelling units, but the Motorola solution was purposely built for
fast, simple deployment and management, while providing high performance
