The Enterasys Wireless Controller family provides a scalable range of solutions that are ideal for managed WLAN deployments supporting demanding voice/video/data applications. The Wireless Controller is simple to deploy and manage, yet provides advanced functionality to allow organizations to define how wireless voice/video/data traffic is processed without architectural constraints and in accordance with the business needs.
Enterasys Wireless Controller provides role-based management for users, devices, and applications with individualized services including Quality of Service (QoS), call admission control, secure access policies, network access control (NAC), captive portals, rate limiting, multicast, filtering, and traffic forwarding. These services are enabled by the unique and flexible Enterasys Wireless Virtual Network Service (VNS) architecture and easily provisioned and managed by an intuitive web interface.
The controller supports mixed mode deployments of 802.11n and 802.11 a/b/g APs along with the ability to seamlessly roam between wireless controllers and access points, providing scalability and ease of deployment. For large deployments, Enterasys Wireless further simplifies the management of thousands of APs by creating mobility zones that extend the VNS properties across multiple wireless controllers. Mobility zones maintain the VNS definitions and the individual policies throughout the entire mobility zone, ensuring that policies follow the user regardless of physical location.
Enterasys Wireless provides an easy, low cost way to deploy 802.11n solutions, delivering cost-effective pricing, wired/wireless integration, and low TCO while openly supporting a broad range of mobile voice, video, and location-based applications to drive enterprise productivity and reduce the overall cost of mobility. With the ability to deliver both centralized and distributed traffic forwarding by application, Enterasys Wireless Controllers enable a flexible, cost-effective path to deploying 802.11n for the enterprise.
