Conexant's prism 802.11A/B/G WLAN solution achieves WMM and WPA2 certification.
"Security and quality of service continue to be essential components of wireless data in both home and enterprise markets," said Larry Ciaccia, vice president and general manager for Conexant's Wireless Data and Networking Components Products business. "Our continued support of these important standards enables our customers to provide very competitive wireless LAN solutions for home, enterprise and consumer electronic markets."
All of Conexant's 802.11b/g and 802.11a/b/g client and access point reference designs include hardware acceleration, which enables the company to provide WPA2 functionality to its customers in the form of a software upgrade. The IEEE 802.11a/b/g dualband PRISM WorldRadio is the first of Conexant's wide portfolio of PRISM WLAN reference designs to receive this certification. The company's family of PRISM WLAN reference designs is based on a common software architecture, which will facilitate WMM and WPA2 certification for other Conexant products.
