Siemens To Unveil Enterprise WLAN Equipment

Siemens said Thursday it will unveil a line of enterprise-class WLAN management and security hardware and software at next week's Network+Interop 2005 conference.

The roll-out of its HiPath line of products leverages Siemens' acquisition of startup WLAN equipment vendor Chantry Networks. The company said the equipment will enable centralized deployment and management of enterprise wireless LANs. It also will work with existing wired networks and voice-over-IP infrastructures.

Specifically, the system will enable centralized management of access points, policies and security, the company said. It will support different rules for different subnets, but also will support roaming between subnets, according to the company.

The company also will unveil a new line of voice-over-WLAN telephones, it said in a statement.
