Product overview

Working in unison with HP MSM controllers, the HP MSM-802.11n Access Point Series delivers high-performance networking solution.
The enhanced controller architecture scales to IEEE 802.11n without requiring a controller replacement. The MSM controllers provide
advanced radio resource management (RRM), including client load balancing and interference mitigation. The MSM wireless controllers
support a fast-roaming capability.
The MSM430 and MSM46x access points provide RF Spectrum Analysis with detection and classification of non-IEEE 802.11
interference. These access points have the ability to automatically avoid interference.
Wireless security is comprehensive with integrated Wireless IDS (MSM410, MSM430, and MSM46x access points) and support for
internal and external authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) servers; a built-in stateful firewall; per-user VLAN mapping;
and authentication.

Features and benefits

Wi-Fi Clear Connect
provides a system-wide approach to deliver WLAN reliability by proactively determining and adjusting to changing RF conditions;
optimizes WLAN performance by detecting interference from Wi-Fi and non-Wi-Fi sources using Spectrum Analysis capabilities
built into the MSM430 and MSM46x access points, identifying rogue activity (MSM410, MSM430, and MSM46x), and making
decisions at a system-wide level
Advanced radio resource management
Automatic radio power adjustments
include real-time power adjustments based on changing environmental conditions and signal coverage adjustment
Automatic radio channel
provides intelligent channel switching and real-time interference detection
Intelligent client load balancing
determines the number of clients across neighboring APs and adjusts client allocation to balance the load
Airtime fairness
helps ensure equal RF transmission time for wireless clients
Spectrum Analysis (requires MSM430 or MSM46x models)
Power/frequency spectrum analysis
measures noise from IEEE 802.11 remote sources
Signal detection/classification
identifies source of RF interference, for example, Bluetooth, cordless phones, and microwave ovens
Evaluation of channel quality
helps detect severe channel degradation and improves the reporting of poor RF performance
Automated work flows:
Initial controller settings
define basic operational settings for the controller, for example, network connections, security settings, and system time
