Colubris Networks today announced an enterprise-class 802.11n access point. The dual-radio MAP-625 is said to provide 802.11n clients with more than four times the performance of current generation WLANs, while simultaneously supporting legacy 802.11a/b/g devices at their full speeds.

The MAP-625's dual-radio design features an 802.11n Draft 2 compliant radio with 3x3 MIMO technology. Legacy device support is provided via a separate 802.11a/b/g radio. The AP also features Colubris' new antenna design with antennae integrated on two hinged wings. This design provides flexibility to operate the access point in an open position as an omni-directional antenna or in a closed position as a directional patch antenna with 5 dBi gain.
