Extreme Altitude 4511

Extreme Networks have announced a new low footprint wireless access point the Altitude 4511. The unit is designed to simplify wireless deployment by being able to install onto existing wall sockets that hold RJ11 or RJ45 sockets. Interestingly, the access point can also act as a controller for up to 24 other units which in our view is a teriffic idea and will simplify deployment.

The unit itself is about the size of an iPhone and is built on an Atheros chip set. All of Extreme’s enterprise wireless management facilities are supported including Dot1X authentication.
