The professional wireless access points use the IEEE 802 11n specification and thus increase the maximum amount of bandwidth for wireless clients on up to 300 megabits per second (Mbps). They are backward compatible to the standards 802.11 a / b / g and is based on Motorola’s advanced access-point technology. The Kontron cab-n-connect product family offers secure wireless connectivity for commercial airlines, the General Aviation and support now the DC needs of smaller business input voltage with the launch of version with 28 and Regional jets.
