    PowerConnect W-620 Small Business and Branch Office Controller

    Compact, All-in-One Small Business Network Control Solution

    The Dell™ PowerConnect™ W-620 controller with ArubaOS® Controller Software is an ideal solution for wireless distributed enterprise networks, with usability and security features that scale for small branch-office wireless local area networks (WLANs) to large-campus networks.

    • Secure your network with a wireless firewall, intrusion protection, end-to-end encryption and role-based access control.
    • Simplify network setup and administration with radio frequency (RF) planning, location tracking and live RF heat maps.
    • Optimise network functionality with print server and network attached storage (NAS) capabilities, virtual private network (VPN) client termination and site-to-site VPN.

    Integrated Wireless Access Controller

    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.

    Hassle-Free, Dependable Deployment

    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.

    ARM technology:
    • Maximizes performance, increasing WiFi capacity while using the full RF spectrum to expand coverage
    • Automatically adapts to noise, moving away from external noise and mitigating co-channel interference
    • Centralizes decision making, enabling the WiFi network to act as a whole during 802.11 channel assignments, preventing access points from channel hopping
    • Displays real-time coverage, integrating an RF planning tool and live RF heat mapping and location tracking

    This Dell solution works with wireless devices, such as third-party voice over IP (VoIP) handsets or wireless scanners.

    Integrated Wireless Security

    The PowerConnect W-Series controllers are an integrated wireless security platform that supports user authentication and policy enforcement, firewall, intrusion protection and centralized encryption.

    W-Series Policy Enforcement Firewall (PEF)

    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.

    W-Series Wireless Intrusion Protection (WIP)

    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.
