The ZA-5000-WS10 WLAN controller supports up to 1024 access points and 10240 users. It includes bandwidth control, wireless intrusion protection, and support for future scalability without the need for any additional licenses.
Simple deployment, Zero-touch provisioning
A few simple steps and the ZA-5000-WS10 can be deployed into your existing network and ready to go. Access points can be automatically discovered, instantly added to the network, and then managed by the controller.
Automatic RF management
The ZA-5000-WS10 will automatically adjust the access points’ channel assignments and transmit power levels in order avoid or mitigate interference from surrounding APs. In the event of an AP failure, the ZA-5000-WS10 can adjust the transmit power of the remaining APs in order to make up for the loss in coverage.
Secure and reliable wireless connectivity
The ZA-5000-WS10 supports the latest WLAN security protocols found in the enterprise market. In addition to this, it includes advanced security features such as ACL, stateful firewalls, DHCP snooping, ARP protection, and rogue access point detection.
Flexible data forwarding architecture
The ZA-5000-WS10 provides secure centralized forwarding of data by tunneling all the wireless traffic to the controller. Furthermore, you can locally forward all the data traffic by routing it directly from the access points to the wired network in order to maximize throughput.
User-role based access policies
The ZA-5000-WS10 provides enterprise-class 802.1X support for wireless client authentication. For first-time connections, HTTP web authentication allows for a “one-time authentication” for users. This directs them to a captive web portal.
Real time monitoring and troubleshooting
The ZA-5000-WS10 gives network administrators an informative graphical view of the users, as well as the wireless network’s traffic details. This information can be used to monitor and troubleshoot the performance of the network in real time, which is essential to enterprise and campus environments.
