Features:

Smart/OS Software Suite and Application Engine

  • Provides WLAN-wide network, security, RF, and location management.
  • SmartMesh wireless meshing that is self-organizing, self-optimizing, and self-healing
  • Adaptable Hybrid SmartMesh extends the wireless network through Ethernet-connected APs, increasing system performance through better spatial reuse
  • Elegant guest networking without the hassle
  • Dynamic Pre-Shared Key (PSK) that are automatically installed on clients
  • Support for 802.1x, LDAP (captive portal), native Active Directory, and RADIUS authentication and dynamic VLAN assignment capabilities
  • Multi-site authentication to scale large deployments
  • Automatic traffic redirection using WISPr for multi-site authentication for large-scale deployments
  • Automatically ensures predictable performance for voice, video, and multimedia through the use of Layer 3 tunneling and using key caching techniques when roaming
  • Bandsteering, load balancing, and airtime fairness to optimize Wi-Fi spectrum
  • Users access policies provide rich WLAN control
  • Traffic thresholds for users on a specific SSID to ensure fairness
  • Maximizes data throughput by sending all data traffic directly from the access points to the wired network

Easy to Deploy and Manage

  • Seamlessly integrates with existing network, security, and authentication infrastructure
  • Automatically discovers and configures ZoneFlex APs, which become instantly manageable
  • Dynamic RF controls over transmit power and channel assignments
  • Supports 256 WLANs mapped to specific APs or VLANs
  • Is easily configured in minutes through point-and-click web-based wizard
  • Customizable dashboard provides comprehensive at-a-glance network snapshot and allows drill down to troubleshoot wireless problems

Outstanding Price/Performance
