Introduction

Earlier in the year, I had the chance to review the Beacon 1 from Nokia coming away quite impressed with the performance and overall low cost making it a solid entry-level solution.

Beacon 3 is Nokia's first Wi-Fi system and current flagship offering. This system uses the same application-based setup and management solution as the Beacon 1, available on iOS and Android platforms. It also offers a browser-based management solution called Nokia Wi-Fi Portal which allows you to manage your network remotely.

Hardware for the Beacon 3 is a bit more substantial and includes the Broadcom BCM68460 paired with Micron DDR3 and MXIC Flash for the OS. As for radios we have the BCM4363 for the 2.4GHz and BCM4366 for the 5GHz; This gives the Beacon 3 450Mbps capabilities for long range 2.4GHz and 2100 Mbps for the high speed 5GHz band. Also included are three RJ45 port for Gigabit LAN and a single WAN.

MSRP of the Nokia Beacon 3 comes in at $199.99 for a single node and $449.99 for the Trio. Warranty is listed at one-year.
