WiNG 5 - Services at the Edge • Self-Monitoring At Run Time RF Management (SMART RF) • Previous versions of SMART RF were dependent on a Motorola RFS series controller. WiNG 5 pushes this service to the edge for remote and standalone deployments. • This approach provides a competitive advantage in: • Small deployments where: • • There is no RFS controller, • • Standalone AP deployments • Medium or large deployments where: • • APs are managed remotely (no controller onsite).
WiNG 5 - Services at the Edge • SMART-RF achieved at the remote branch office • One of the APs in the remote branch office is elected as RF-Domain-Manager and performs all the site-management functions at the branch office: • SMART RF • Roaming co-ordination • Smart Band Control • Statistics collection from APs in the RF Domain. REMOTE BRANCH OFFICE Interference NOC CONTROLLER WAN RF DOMAIN MANAGER RF DOMAIN: BRANCH_001
WiNG 5 - Services at the Edge • Firmware Update feature is enforced at the Network Edge with WiNG 5 Access Points • Controllers no longer need to push firmware and configurations to each individual Access Point, reducing unnecessary network congestion , • Firmware update is supported from one Access Point to another.
WiNG 5 - Services at the Edge • Firmware Update at the Network Edge can be achieved with the “RF Domain Manager” concept. Image File Image File Image File Image File Image File BRANCH OFFICE HEADQUARTER - NOC RF DOMAIN MANAGER WAN Wi-NG 5 CONTROLLERS CLUSTER RF DOMAIN: BRANCH_001
WiNG 5 – Firmware Update Management • Each Access Point and Wireless Controller now supports a Primary and Secondary firmware image • Provides Redundancy and seamless upgrade Wireless Controller AP 7131 Access Point AP 650 Access Point Primary Firmware Image Primary Firmware Image Primary Firmware Image Secondary Firmware Image Secondary Firmware Image Secondary Firmware Image
NX 9000 – NOC Controller • NX 9000 provides a single point for configuration, policy settings and remote troubleshooting for up to 10 240 WLAN Access Points. • Hotspot configuration, security policy management, statistics aggregation and DHCP / Radius / FTP services are all done by one powerful NOC controller. • This efficient WLAN architecture makes controlling the network easier and reduces the hardware OPEX needed to support large networks. • The NX 9000 supports 1+1 failover for high availability with no additional licensing fees for the redundant system.

WiNG 5 – AP as a Controller ISOLATED SITE < 24 ACCESS POINTS • WiNG 5 introduces the AP as a Controller or “Virtual Controller” concept, in which an AP can adopt and manage similar device types. • Available for AP6511 (5.0.1), and available for AP7131 and AP6532 (5.2) • An AP as a Controller can only adopt and manage devices of the same type • The AP as a controller is a controller and an AP • There is no “failover” concept for AP as a Controllers .
WiNG 5.2 – UPDATE • Support for Independent AP / Standalone AP / Autonomous AP – Embedded GUI • AP 7161 • AP 7131 – Virtual Controller mode • AP 6532 – Virtual Controller mode • AP 6521 • AP 6511 • Support for Dependent AP • AP 650 • AP 621 • AP 300
WiNG 5.2 – UPDATE • AP 300 support as an adopted/dependant AP • AP 300 adoption isnowavailable on the WiNG 5.2 RFS controllers. • AP 300 continues to be a thin port like in WiNG 4.x • Featuressupported: • L2 / L3 adoption • L2 roaming • Static IP configuration • LoadBalancing / Clustering • Limited support willbecarried over intoWiNG 5.2 • Features not supported: • L3 mobility • SMART-RF • AP 300 can not be a RF-Domain manager
WiNG 5.2 – UPDATE • RF Performance – SMART Band Control • Loadbalancing of wireless Clients across the 2.4 and 5 Ghz band • Ease of Deployment • Configuration Migration tool (from 4.x to 5.2): • Customerswill not need to rebuildtheir configuration after the firmware upgrade, making the conversion seamless • Standard update • 802.11k & 802.11r: • Implementationrequired to get the Voice Enterprise Certification fromWi-Fi. • IEEE 802.11k and 802.11r are the key industry standards that enable seamless Basic Service Set (BSS) transitions in WLAN.
