Emerson’s Wireless Plant Network Service offers comprehensive options to help you get started with your plant network applications.
Emerson has been delivering wireless products and solutions in plant environments since the acceptance of IEEE 802.11 as the standard in the process industry. Our experience has demonstrated the importance and benefits of using wireless local area network (WLAN) technology in manufacturing and processing plants.
Emerson’s Smart Wireless architecture uses rugged wireless access points from Cisco to provide Wi-Fi coverage. The Cisco® Aironet 1550 Series Outdoor Wireless Mesh Access Points are Class I, Div 2 (ATEX Zone 2) certified and support dual band radios compliant with IEEE 802.11 a/b/g/n standards.
Cisco Prime Infrastructure allows you to design, control, and monitor enterprise wireless networks from a single location.
