Industry leading scalable modular Mobility Controller

Dell Networking W 7210 Controller

Sorry, this unit has been discontinued. Please, contact us for a replacement product!

Overview:

The Dell Networking W-7200 mobility controller is optimized for campuses needing high-capacity WLAN for users, devices and application delivery to ensure the best mobility experience.

With a new central processor that employs eight cores with four threads each, it's like having a total of 32 virtual CPUs. As a result, the W-7200 Series supports 32,000 mobile devices and performs stateful firewall policy enforcement at 40 Gbps – plenty of capacity and speed for BYOD and 802.11ac devices.

New levels of visibility are provided by Dell W-Series unique AppRF technology, which runs on W-7200 Series mobility controllers. With AppRF, IT can see applications by user, including top web-based applications like Facebook and Box.

The W-7200 Series also manages authentication, encryption, VPN connections, IPv4 and IPv6 Layer 3 services, Policy Enforcement Firewall™, Adaptive Radio Management™, and RFProtect™ spectrum analysis and wireless intrusion protection.

Clustering and centralized management enable the deployment of large networks with hundreds of mobility controllers with minimal staff. A master mobility controller can manage local mobility controllers, while W-AirWave network management provides enterprise-wide clarity and control through real-time monitoring, historical reporting and troubleshooting.

Architected for High Availability

The W-7200 Series includes a number of features that make it ideal for deployment in customer locations that require maximum availability.

  • Redundant power supplies: The W-7200 Series supports dual, field replaceable redundant power supplies to maintain uninterrupted network operations.
  • Hot-swappable fan tray with multiple fans: The W-7200 Series includes a field-replaceable fan tray with multiple fans, providing sufficient cooling and rapid time to repair.
  • Solid state drives for maximum reliability and uptime.
  • Two dual-media ports: 1000BASE-X or 10/100/1000BASE-T connections for high availability.
