Deploy wireless networks that adjust to how WiFi clients interact. Dell Networking W-Series controllers and access points (APs) offer high-performance, secure and reliable wireless access and management across indoor, outdoor and remote locations.
Working with Dell Networking W-Series access points, the Dell Networking W-Series controllers can provide highly detailed and differentiated context-aware policies, including user role, device type, application type, time and location. A context-aware network helps to drastically improve quality of service (QoS) related to real-time unified communications and multimedia traffic, and enhance support for bring your own device (BYOD) environments.
All Dell Networking W-Series access points work with any of the Dell Networking W-Series controllers to enable high-performance WiFi and secure, flexible management across indoor, outdoor and remote locations in small to very large wireless environments.
Dell Adaptive Radio Management technology enables wireless networks to adjust to how WiFi clients interact:
The security modules on Dell Networking W-Series controllers ensure that no data is sent in the clear; access-level policies are enforced across entire campuses and all remote users from a single touch point.
Securely administer Dell Networking W-Series Access Point WiFi networks from a controller using the Dell Networking W-Series AirWave Software Management Suite.
Optional Dell Networking W-Series AirWave Wireless Management Suite (AWMS) is a multivendor network management software suite that delivers a consolidated view of the RF environment, controllers, APs and the wired infrastructure through an intuitive user interface.
