Dell Networking W-3000
The Dell Networking W-3000 Controller Series is a
family of three full-featured controllers that addresses
a wide range of wireless and wired network mobility,
security and remote networking requirements for
medium and large regional offices.
The W-3000 Series is easily installed without
disrupting the existing wired network and supports
up to 8,192 users and performs stateful firewall policy
enforcement at speeds up to 4 Gbps.
The W-3000 Series acts as the head-end portion
of Dell's wireless LAN architecture, which uses
centralized controllers in the data center to manage
complex and processing-intensive management and
security functions. Edge services are virtualized and
implemented in cost-effective W-Series access points
(APs) at the network edge, which move user traffic
to data center controllers through secure IP tunnels
over a public or private transport network.
Powered by W-Series OS Controller Software, the
W-3000 Series comes standard with advanced
authentication, encryption, wireless radio
management, secure enterprise wireless mesh
and Layer 2/Layer 3 networking features. Optional
software modules deliver additional functionality,
including Policy Enforcement Firewall (PEF),
Wireless Intrusion Prevention (WIP) and advanced
Controller clustering and centralized management
allow large enterprise networks with multiple
controllers to be managed and maintained with
minimal staff overhead. A designated master
controller can manage multiple local controllers
while the W-Series AirWave Wireless Management
Suite (AWMS) provides unprecedented control for
the IT staff through real-time monitoring, historical
reporting and troubleshooting.
Scalable, easy to deploy
