  1. 1. PRODUCT SPEC SHEETMOTOROLA AIRDEFENSE SERVICES PLATFORMHOLISTIC NETWORK SERVICES MANAGEMENT FOR WLANMOTOROLAAIRDEFENSESERVICES PLATFORMModern business depends on wireless communication to exchange information,build partnerships, distribute resources, promote services and functionproductively in a fast-paced world. But wireless connectivity brings with it aunique set of vulnerabilities, complexities and management challenges, anddealing with them requires a unique set of tools.Motorola’s AirDefense Services Platform (ADSP) simplifies the management,monitoring, and protection of your WLAN networks. The platform supports threekey functions - security and compliance, network assurance, and infrastructuremanagement - within a modular architecture to maximize deployment flexibilityand minimize the cost of implementation. The ADSP combines the informationcollected from your network of sensors or access points with the analyticalpower of an intelligent central console to provide 24/7 network monitoring andautomate security functions, regulatory compliance requirements, multi-vendornetwork management and remote troubleshooting.VENDOR AGNOSTIC CUSTOMIZABLE SOLUTIONS FOR EVERY NEEDMulti-vendor, multi-technology networks are Your organization is unique and so are your business Security & Compliancenot uncommon in today’s wireless infrastructure needs.
