Symbol Technologies Inc. has released the “industry’s first” radio frequency (RF) wireless switch that the company says leverages synergies between Wi-Fi, RFID and other key RF technologies.

The RFS7000 RF Switch leverages Symbol’s Wireless Next Generation (Wi-NG) architecture and is designed to support and consolidate Wi-Fi and emerging RF technologies such as RFID, 802.11n, mesh, Voice over Wireless LAN (VoWLAN) and Wi-Max.

According to Symbol, businesses will now be able to efficiently and cost-effectively deploy and centrally manage wireless voice, data and infrastructure devices throughout the RF spectrum.

The RFS7000 RF Switch is 802.11n-ready, capable of supporting up to 256 802.11a/b/g access ports, and enables a new switch-clustering concept, providing redundancy and high-performance scalability for more than 2,000 access points.
