The Dell™ PowerConnect™ W-3600 Controller is a full-featured, integrated mobility access controller that addresses a wide range of wireless network mobility, security and remote networking requirements for medium to large enterprise deployments.
- Secure your network with a wireless firewall, intrusion protection, end-to-end encryption and role-based access control.
- Simplify network setup and administration with RF planning, location tracking and live RF heat maps.
- Optimize network functionality with print server and network attached storage capabilities, virtual private network (VPN) client termination and site-to-site VPN.
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 Networking 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 cryptography module.
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.
