Motorola Solutions was named Wireless Vendor of the Year as part of the second annual Network Middle East Awards. The accolade recognises Motorola Solutions’ strong WiNG 5 wireless LAN (WLAN), ease of deployment and world-class 802.11n portfolio.
Specialising in distributed WLANs, Motorola has done a number of implementations in the region, consisting of networks that span hundreds of access points (APs).
Deployments in the retail, education and hospitality sectors can be particularly challenging due to the large number of APs in remote sites, with some customers running into 1000+ sites across a dozen countries in the region. Managing the deployment and upkeep of all these sites from a central location can be quite a challenge, a task that the WiNG 5 WLAN architecture makes easy.
A key differentiator with Motorola’s WiNG 5 solutions is the intelligence built into the APs. APs can behave as local bridges and switch packets locally to avoid clogging up the WAN links in the case of a distributed network.
The past few years have seen Motorola acquire a number of companies with complementary technologies, which have now come together as a powerful best-in-class offering.
The establishment of a new division, Wireless Network Solutions, to take these products to market has placed Motorola among the most coveted of wireless networking companies.
Nader Baghdadi, regional sales manager, Motorola Solutions, said: “The Middle East market is spearheading the use of wireless technologies, and Motorola is working with leading companies to provide world-class innovation and solutions. Being recognized as Wireless Vendor of the Year for 2011 as part of the Network World Middle East Awards further cements our position as an innovative leader in the market.”
