Proxim's SmartConnect™ is designed to deliver high performance in high density environments and under challenging interference conditions.
Proxim SmartConnect™ features Proxim's proprietary Beam steering technology (BeamX™) that steers the antenna main lobe towards the remote end of the link. This results in limiting interferences from nearby RF sources and thus providing much better interference robustness than a standard sector antenna.
Proxim SmartConnect™ technology includes Proxim SmartScan™, a dedicated scan radio that continuously monitors surrounding RF environments. With this ability the system can immediately switch to a free channel in the event of weather radar detection or heavy interference making the DFS channels more useable. It also opens access to the 5.600-5.650 GHz sub-band, and in total enables effective use of up to an additional 355 MHz of DFS spectrum.
More Megabits per Second
By using a narrower beam width, BeamX antenna improves the radio SNR level by up to 6 dB when compared to a traditional 60 degree sector antenna. This allows the use of higher modulation and hence higher throughput and system performance.
