Modernize and scale to meet the needs of your business
Combine enterprise capabilities with entry-level simplicity through Dell Networking W-Series instant access points (IAPs) with built-in virtual controllers. When multiple IAPs are connected, a single IAP acts as a primary virtual controller. If that controller fails, another Dell Networking W-Series IAP in the chain automatically takes over as the primary virtual controller without disrupting services. To expand your network, just add more Dell Networking W-Series IAPs. Configuration is automatically uploaded from the primary virtual controller.
The virtual controller technology is able to monitor and control critical network maintenance tasks, including:
- Specialized Adaptive Radio Management functions that optimize WiFi client behavior, enabling IAPs to avoid RF interference
- Auto-configuration for added IAPs
- 802.1x authentication
- Role- and device-based policy enforcement
- Rogue detection
Deploy with easeBe up and running in minutes, provisioning your Dell Networking W-Series IAPs in a few easy steps using virtually any laptop’s wireless connection. Dell Networking W-Series IAPs are designed to provide enterprise-class networking services without enterprise-size complexity and include an expanded wired + wireless IAP portfolio with high-end wireless features for hotspots and remote branches.
As WLAN requirements grow, configuration settings can be used to easily convert the Dell Networking W-Series IAPs to campus APs that work with a centralized-controller architecture.
Confidently manage your WiFi networksSecurely manage and administer a Dell Networking W-Series IAP WiFi network from a single built-in web-based GUI.
Manage multiple Dell Networking W-Series IAP WiFi networks using Dell Networking W-Series AirWave Software Management Suite (AWMS). AirWave manages local or geographically dispersed deployments and aggregates them into one console. It gives you a single, accurate picture of everything that affects service quality for your users — from the wired infrastructure to the RF environment to individual mobile devices.
Enhance RF managementDell Networking W-Series IAPs with Dell Adaptive Radio Management (ARM) technology help ensure that data, voice and video applications have sufficient network resources to operate properly, allowing maximum client performance while enhancing stability and predictability of the entire WiFi network. ARM features include:
- Spectrum load balancing that uniformly distributes clients across channels in high-density environments
- Noise awareness that dynamically shifts clients away from channels hampered by outside interference
- Band steering that enables IAPs to dynamically transfer clients away from crowded bands
- Airtime fairness that delivers equal access to all WiFi clients, regardless of client type, wireless chip or OS
