PowerConnect W-600 series controllers are integral components of the Dell enterprise network architecture, which uses central controllers in the data center to manage complex, processing-intensive management and security functions. W-600 series controllers also virtualize and implement edge services, moving user traffic to data-center controllers through secure IP tunnels over a public or private transport network.
W-600 series controllers can provide local wireless services when used with any PowerConnect W-Series access point, or they can operate as wired-only devices. The controllers also include print server and NAS capabilities to enable local network printing and mass storage.
The PowerConnect W-Series Adaptive Radio Management (ARM) technology helps optimize client behavior using infrastructure-based controls that utilize information from the centrally managed WLAN controller. ARM can adjust how WiFi™ clients interact, and it verifies that data, voice and video applications have sufficient network resources to deliver a superior wireless experience for end users.
This optional module provides identity-based controls to enforce security, prioritization, traffic forwarding and network performance policies. Organizations are free to set performance thresholds of various applications and enforce network access policies that specify not only who can access the network but also which areas of the network these users can access.
This optional module provides outstanding wireless network visibility and thwarts malicious wireless attacks, impersonations and unauthorized intrusions. WIP helps eliminate the need for a separate system of RF sensors and security appliances by incorporating wireless intrusion protection into the network infrastructure.
PowerConnect W-Airwave Wireless Management Suite (AWMS) is an operations solution that manages wired and wireless infrastructure as well as mobile devices. Its easy-to-use interface and user-centric approach:
