Siemens Communications Inc., today released its new HiPath Wireless portfolio, an 802.11 wireless Local Area Network (LAN) system that works in any enterprise environment and on any existing data network or voice over IP (VoIP) infrastructure.

“The array of wireless technologies required to fully mobilize an enterprise is vast,” said Craig Mathias, a principal with Farpoint Group, an Ashland, Mass.-based mobile advisory company.

The system’s Layer 3 overlay architecture provides for centralized management and coordination of access points, security and user-based policy rules.

Rapid subnet roaming supports real-time applications like VoIP without the need for re-authentication and re-keying as a user roams.

Virtual wireless subnets are also part of the HiPath Wireless system’s architecture, enabling enterprises create user access policies for different campus locations and for different classes of users or applications.

The HiPath Wireless Controller automatically provisions the right levels of access and quality of service for roaming users.
