Motorola unveils enhanced radio card
Motorola announced the LA-5127 Wireless Networker CompactFlash client radio card with 802.11b/g connectivity. According to the company, the radio card offers enhanced Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2) enterprise mode security and enables wireless network connectivity for non-wireless equipment such as mobile printers, weight scales, instrumentation and health-care monitoring devices.
The LA-5127 is available to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and includes a software development kit, which lets OEMs embed the technology into an existing product line. OEMs can then build custom products—used in vertical markets including healthcare, transportation and logistics, warehousing and distribution, and retail—to transmit critical information from the point of business activity.
“Our OEM clients want to provide their customers with devices that can be wirelessly connected to a network for capturing and sharing information in real-time,” said Sujai Hajela, vice president and general manager of wireless infrastructure, Motorola Networks & Enterprise, in a statement. “The LA-5127 Wireless Networker comes in a small, power-efficient package with a feature set optimized for today’s business-critical mobile enterprise applications.”
The product is regulatory approved in more than 70 countries throughout North America, South America, Europe and Asia, according to the company.
