Virtual controller technology

  The virtual controller technology in PowerConnect W-IAP92 delivers enterprise-grade controller capabilities without needing a separate access point controller. The virtual controller in a single IAP is capable of controlling up to fifteen other IAPs, supporting total of 256 users that are either local or dispersed across multiple locations. Like dedicated controller it is able to perform all key task from AP auto discovery, 802.1X authentication, role- and device-based policy enforcement, rogue detection as well as specialized Adaptive Radio Management (ARM) task that optimizes Wi-Fi client behavior by making sure that IAPs stay clear of RF interference. When multiple IAPs are connected together, a single IAP acts as a primary virtual controller. In the event of primary virtual controller failure, another W-series IAP in a chain automatically takes on the role with no disruption to services.

Ease of deployment

  PowerConnect W-IAP is up and running in minutes. From a laptop, simply connect wirelessly to an SSID to perform over-the-air provisioning in three easy steps. To expand, just install more PowerConnect W-IAP – configuration is automatically applied to new units.


Management and visibility

  Multiple PowerConnect W-IAP networks can be securely and centrally managed by Dell PowerConnect W-Series AirWave software management suite, allowing W-IAPs to operate hundreds of remote locations. With Dell PowerConnect W-Series AirWave, IT has realtime visibility into users, mobile devices, Wired and Wireless LANs infrastructure all from a single management console.

Investment protection
  As WLAN requirements expand, PowerConnect W-IAP can be re-imaged as an 802.11n campus AP and migrate to a centralized Mobility Controller architecture capable of supporting hundreds and thousands of APs. Firmware to covert IAP to campus AP is available upon request. In addition to providing WLAN access, campus APs in a centralized, controller architecture can provide wireless intrusion protection and powerful spectrum analysis capabilities.
