Features and Benefits
WiNG architecture â€” delivering a unified voice, data and RF management platform
Improve business process flow with one platform for wireless voice, video, data and multiple RF technologies on one platform â€” such as RFID, Wi-Fi (including 802.11n) and future technologies such as Wi-MAX; rich enterprise-class functionality includes seamless roaming across L2/L3 deployments, resilient failover capabilities, comprehensive security, toll-quality voice and other value-added services, such as multi-RF locationing.
Role-based wired/wireless firewall
Comprehensively secures and protects the wired and wireless network against attacks and unauthorized access at Layer 2 and Layer 3 with Stateful Inspection; ability to create identity and location-based policies provides granular control of network access.
Adaptive AP â€” Extending the Enterprise
Enables centralized management of 802.11 a/b/g/n mesh access points at remote sites including automatic firmware upgrades; provides site survivability for remote locations with 802.11a/b/g/n networks for unparalleled resiliency.
SMART RF Management
Next generation self-healing: enables the WLAN to automatically and intelligently adapt to changes in the RF environment to eliminate unforeseen gaps in coverage.
Wireless Intrusion Protection System
The built-in wireless intrusion protection system provides defense against over-the-air attacks by leveraging the sensing capabilities of AP300/ AP51x1/ AP7131
Comprehensive layered security
Exceptional level of data and network protection without sacrificing fast roaming, including: WPA2-CCMP (with 802.11i fast roaming options); Stateful Firewall at Layer 2 and Layer 3 for the wired and wireless network with role based configurations; Geofencing, integrated RADIUS Server; IPSec VPN Gateway; Secure Guest Access Provisioning; 802.11w for management frame protection, and 24x7 dedicated security via Motorolaâ€™s Wireless IPS, providing the advanced technology required to detect any rogue network, including 802.11n.
Enhanced End-to-End Quality of Service (QoS)
Enhances voice and video capabilities; prioritizes network traffic to minimize latency and provide optimal quality of experience; SIP Call Admission Control and Wi-Fi Multimedia Extensions (WMM-Power Save) with Admission Control enhances multimedia application support and improves battery life and capacity; network optimization through granular bandwidth contracts based on bandwidth utilization network load and number of users for different applications being used, in different locations; TSPEC Admission Control ensures ample bandwidth and a superior user experience for VoIP calls; 802.11k provides effective radio resource management.
Real Time Locationing System (RTLS)
Provides rich locationing services to enable real-time enterprise asset-tracking through support for 802.11, RFID and third party locationing solutions — including industry leaders AeroScout, Ekahau, and Newbury Networks. Standards-based support for: EPC Global ALE interface for processing and filtering data from all active and passive tags; and EPC Global LLRP interface for passive RFID tag support.
Clustering and failover features
Supports multiple levels of redundancy and failover capabilities to ensure high availability networks; provides a single Virtual IP (per VLAN) for the cluster for use as a default gateway by mobile devices or wired infrastructure; built-in DHCP/ AAA server synchronized failover; multi-platform license sharing enables deployment of cost-effective networks.
3G Wireless for WAN backhaul
Support for 3G wireless cards to backhaul WAN traffic when the primary WAN link fails.
Virtual AP provides better control of broadcast traffic and enables multiple mobile and wireless applications with quality of service when network is congested; Pre-emptive Roaming ensures Motorola mobile devices roam before signal quality degrades; Power Save Protocol optimizes battery life.
