TerraWave Solutions Introduces Integrated Antenna and AP Enclosure Solutions

Innovative Solutions are First to Wireless LAN Marketplace, Incorporating High-Gain Antenna, Cisco® 1242 AP & Ruggedized Enclosure in a Single Unit

San Antonio, TX, November 1, 2006 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- TerraWave Solutions, a division of TESSCO Technologies Incorporated (Nasdaq: TESS), today introduced an Integrated Antenna & Access Point Enclosure which offers a flexible, three-in-one outdoor solution -- a Cisco® 1242 Access Point and a high gain directional antenna designed to withstand harsh environments and extreme weather conditions. Two new integrated units are available in a 2.4 GHz, 19 dBi and a 5 GHz 23 dBi model.

This innovative solution is the only product on the market with a high-gain antenna that is FCC Certified to work with the Cisco 1242 AP.

This enclosure was designed specifically for outdoor 802.11 (Wi-Fi) networking and bridging applications. TerraWave's Cisco® 1242 AP Integrated Enclosure solution simultaneously provides bridging, local coverage and wireless backhaul. This combination of flexible features makes the Integrated Antenna & Access Point Enclosure a cost effective alternative for outdoor bridging deployments.

"The Integrated Unit gives Cisco wireless LAN customers a very easy and cost effective outdoor WLAN and bridging solution," said Chris Marco, TerraWave Solutions business unit leader. "As a Cisco Strategic Technology Integrator (STI), TerraWave developed this innovative product to further enhance the deployment options available to system integrators."

Built with a ruggedized and weatherized enclosure to withstand extreme weather conditions, additional features of TerraWave's integrated unit include: integrated and weatherized Ethernet connections, supports the latest encryption standards including AES, two RPTNC bulkhead connectors and 802.3af PoE is available.

Both 2.4 and 5 GHz units are easy to install and come standard with an articulating pole mount. Weighing 7 lbs, these solutions are much lighter than traditional enclosures and require only Power Over Ethernet, eliminating the need to run 115V power.
