Ceiling or Wall Mounted N-WAP Offers More Bandwidth to WiFi Devices Throughout the Home for Consumer Convenience and Enjoyment

MIDDLETOWN, PA, September 7, 2011 – Legrand, the leader in home systems and solutions, will dramatically increase the speed of its home Wireless Access Point from 54 Mbps to 300 Mbps, beginning in late Fall of this year. The new 802.11N Wireless Access Point (N-WAP) will replace the current WAP, while pricing will remain the same. The N-WAP delivers WiFi connectivity for even the most bandwidth-demanding applications, such as video streaming (Netflix, Hulu, Skype, etc.) and VoIP (voice over IP).

The upgraded Wireless Access Point can be installed two ways in the home – as a dome-shaped ceiling mounted unit, or as a rectangular shaped wall-mounted box. Ordering and installation is made easy for installers, as a single SKU includes all hardware necessary for both wall-mount and ceiling-mount options.

Installation is also made easier with true PoE (Power over Ethernet) support so the installer does not need to run any extra power cable to the N-WAP. All wiring uses standard Cat 5 cable. The N-WAP can be mounted over either a triple-gang electrical box or a single-gang box for added installer convenience and flexibility.

The new  802.11N Wireless Access Point also features multiple internal antennas for better coverage throughout the home.

“This new Wireless Access Point enables homeowners to fully utilize all their WiFi devices throughout their homes without any concern for bandwidth constraints,” said Dave Hanchette, vice president of marketing for the Home Systems Division of Legrand, North America. “Homeowners are utilizing streaming technology on a more frequent basis, and demand will only increase in the coming years. We want to ensure that they have the fastest, most reliable connection on the market. With this upgraded N-WAP, we’ve delivered on that goal.”
