HD Communications Corp. has introduced a wireless access point unlike most others. This wireless access point installs in your wall using a standard CAT5 Ethernet cable to power it and bring data to it. The HD24613 installs in a single gang box and the company offers a low-voltage install ring as an option.

The HD24613 is ideal for institutions that are already wired for CAT5 and now need a wired connection as well as a wireless solution in each room. The HD24613 has an RJ-45 connector on the front of the unit so a user will not lose their wired connection while obtaining a wireless connection in each room. For large installations a PoE switch is available to support up to 24 in-wall access points.

The HD24613 will sell for $199 on the company's web site and is expected to begin shipping by the end of August. The company has already received multiple pre-release orders for the device.
