The Ektor Wireless Module is designed to be compatible with IEEE802.11 b/g/n Wi-Fi protocols and can simultaneously host it's own Wi-Fi network (SoftAP mode) and/or connect to another network as a client (STA mode). This facilitates easy configuration from a smart device running the Ektor Configuration App. Both SoftAP and STA mode support a range of Wi-Fi security types, including WPA2-AES, WPA2-mixed, WPA, WEP and Open.
Based on the development platform provided by BroadCom's WICED, the Ektor Wireless Module supports a number of advanced features, including a complete IPv4/IPv6 TCP/IP stack with SSL/TLS/HTTPS for added security.
The module can communicate with up to 8 clients simultaneously with a maximum throughput of over 20Mb/s, and can synchronize it's time with network locations.
In addition to the security provided by the Wi-Fi network and TLS stack, the Ektor Wireless Module features a 3-tier password and authentication system to protect against unauthorized commands and critical settings changes.
The Ektor Wireless Module can connect to the Cloud to provide additional functionality. This connection is protected by TLS1.0, and AES-128 encryption.
