Samsung’s Traffic Schedule technology ensures a fully optimised Wi-Fi service by allocating equal airtime to multiple devices. This technology guarantees airtime fairness when multiple devices are concurrently connected to an AP. It also delivers seamless service, even in an environment where devices with different traffic demands and capabilities are used. In addition, it can maximise the AP’s total throughput by more than 50% when compared with competitors’ products, providing the best performance that adapts to the Wi-Fi connection specifications (a, b/g, n, ac) and signal intensity characteristics.
Intelligent Beam Selectable Antenna (IBSA)
A Samsung 3 x 3 AP contains 14 antennas. Two antennas are used for RF monitoring and the remaining 12 provide an optimised RF pattern selecting a beam for each environment. As a result, dead areas are minimised, service coverage is expanded, and the receiving sensitivity is 2 dB higher than competitors’ products. This means that the access point can accurately receive a signal from a mobile device with typically weak transmit power even when it is some distance away.
Samsung AirMove technology applies the handover methodology used within LTE mobile communications to deliver seamless roaming. Timing and choice of access point is determined centrally by the Access Point Controller (APC) which has a full picture of device activity and adjacent AP loading.
Voice Aware Traffic Scheduling (VaTS)
VaTS is a Samsung patented technology, which efficiently sends Voice Frames to multiple devices using mobile communication traffic scheduling technology developed for LTE networks. The result is that increasing the number of concurrent calls will not degrade voice quality, increasing the effective capacity of the network.
Self Organising Network (SON)
Samsung have enhanced the standard Wi-Fi access point Tx power and channel optimisation technology using techniques developed for the LTE network. This technology automatically optimises the cell configuration and coverage, considering individual device characteristics within the environment. This dramatically shortens the time required for network design, reducing implementation costs, and also delivers a high level of RF quality management when the network is in use.
Wireless Intrusion Prevention (WIPS)**
The importance of security in the enterprise communication environment cannot be over emphasised. The Samsung APs have a dedicated security RF monitoring chip embedded, which is separate to the Wi-Fi service RF chip, to enable continuous real-time monitoring of the local RF environment. This maximises the RF sensing performance without impacting on Wi-Fi data throughput as there is no need to utilise a Wi-Fi data time slot, or any increase to the system cost by adding additional monitor APs.
