Whether deploying a network across multiple schools in a K-12 school district, campuses in a hospital system or a retailer’s store branches, the NX 9000 Integrated Services Controller is set up to handle several sites and thousands of users. Your IT staff can centrally control networks of 1,000 to 10,000 WLAN access points geographically dispersed across small or medium-sized enterprise locations. WiNG 5 access points intelligently handle the traffic flows, quality of service, mobility and security at remotely distributed locations, while the NX 9000 provides a single point for configuration, policy setting and remote troubleshooting. Hotspot configuration, security policy management and statistics aggregation are all done by one powerful controller located at headquarters or a datacenter.
FEATURES AND BENEFITS
Centralized control for Distributed WLAN networks
Easily grow the wireless network across multiple geographic locations, scaling to 10,000 WiNG 5 network access points that provide intelligence at the network edge with complete visibility and policy management from a centralized location in the NOC or private cloud
Fast and easy deployment
Rapidly deploy and configure multiple distributed locations automatically using auto provisioning policies, with zero pre-staging on the access points. Firmware updates are made easy by single image downloaded once over the WAN link to the WiNG 5 access point as a virtual controller, which in turn pushes the firmware to the neighboring WiNG 5 access points in the network
Multi-level network resiliency
Your network is assured high availability and redundancy with 1:1 failover. Distributed WiNG 5 architecture increases wireless network capacity to eliminate VoIP latency problems and streaming video jitter. Site survivability through access point failure, wired switch failure, wireless controller failure and WAN outage provides a compelling disaster recovery network
Comprehensive troubleshooting and visualizations
Multiple troubleshooting features make network runtime network management easier. Remotely debug problems, use packet capture and aggregated statistics/system logs to quickly pinpoint issues, and use heat maps and client visualizations to get a complete picture of the health of the RF network.
