Dedicated Distributed Sensing

The Right Approach to Wireless Intrusion Prevention

By Motorola
Posted June 2009




Some vendors are offering integrated WIPS. These solutions provide only "check-box" functionality. Part-time scanning, typically used by these systems, has significant frequency and time holes. APs and sensors have different functional requirements and integrated solutions that try to use APs as sensors will have several limitations.


While it may seem that integrated solutions have lower cost, in fact, the normalized cost as well as the TCO is lower for Motorola’s dedicated WIPS.


Finally, WIPS is not just about rogue device management, it also encompasses everything from mobile worker protection to forensic analysis capabilities. Motorola’s dedicated distributed collaborative intelligence based WIPS offers the most comprehensive solution with the highest return on investment.
