HP Launches Wi-Fi Rival To Cisco

Hewlett-Packard is introducing a Wi-Fi switch module for its ProCurve 5300 edge switch. The company believes its Wireless Edge Services Module (WESM) is more tightly integrated than the Wi-Fi Services Module (WISM) from rival Cisco. HP plans to sell WESM, which will initially include support for 12 access points or “Radio Ports”, for 3,699 euros and will charge another 2,959 euros for an additional 24 access points with software keys. It expects its ProCurve 5300 edge switch to hold a pair of the modules, thus providing support for 72 access points and therefore accommodating 1,000 users.
