Hassle-free, dependable deployment

Deploy wireless networks that adjust to how WiFi clients interact. Dell Networking W-Series controllers and access points (APs) offer high-performance, secure and reliable wireless access and management across indoor, outdoor and remote locations.
  • Dell Networking W-Series 7200 Controllers for large enterprise WiFi LANs recognize new cloud-based and mobile applications and provide visibility for IT to prioritize mobile apps by user.
  • Dell Networking W-Series 7000 Controllers for smaller campuses and branch offices provide simple and cost-effective configuration, encryption and visibility for the all-wireless workplace.

 

Dell Networking W-Series Controller-Based Platforms - Implement context-aware access policies

Implement context-aware access policies

Working with Dell Networking W-Series access points, the Dell Networking W-Series controllers can provide highly detailed and differentiated context-aware policies, including user role, device type, application type, time and location. A context-aware network helps to drastically improve quality of service (QoS) related to real-time unified communications and multimedia traffic, and enhance support for bring your own device (BYOD) environments.

Centralized wireless mobility control

All Dell Networking W-Series access points work with any of the Dell Networking W-Series controllers to enable high-performance WiFi and secure, flexible management across indoor, outdoor and remote locations in small to very large wireless environments.

Dell Adaptive Radio Management technology enables wireless networks to adjust to how WiFi clients interact:

  • Client matching continually gathers information about client devices and matches them to the best access points.
  • Spectrum load balancing uniformly distributes clients across channels in high-density environments.
  • Noise adaption automatically moves traffic away from external noise and mitigates co-channel interference.
  • Band steering enables APs with both radios available to dynamically transfer clients away from crowded radio channels or bands.
  • Airtime fairness delivers equal airtime access to all WiFi clients, regardless of client type or OS.

Integrated wireless security

The security modules on Dell Networking W-Series controllers ensure that no data is sent in the clear; access-level policies are enforced across entire campuses and all remote users from a single touch point.

  • Dell Networking W-Series Policy Enforcement Firewall (PEF) provides identity-based controls to enforce application-layer security, prioritization, traffic forwarding and network performance policies for wired and wireless networks.
  • Dell Networking W-Series Wireless Intrusion Protection (WIP/RFP) guard against wireless security threats with spectrum monitoring visibility into sources of RF interference, reducing the need for separate RF sensors and air monitors.
  • Dell Networking W-Series Advanced Cryptography (ACR) offers military-grade cryptography and enables secure access to networks that handle confidential and classified information.
  • Dell Networking W-Series Policy Enforcement Firewall with VPN (PEF–V) allows integrated VPN termination capability.

 

Dell Networking W-Series Controller-Based Platforms - Confidently manage your WiFi networks

Confidently manage your WiFi networks

Securely administer Dell Networking W-Series Access Point WiFi networks from a controller using the Dell Networking W-Series AirWave Software Management Suite.

  • Eliminate the need for multiple, single-purpose management tools with one touch point to manage both wired and wireless network, IPs and VLANs.
  • Simplify enforcement access-level policies across the entire campus and any remote users.
  • Enable your service desk to prioritize connectivity issues.
  • Free your network engineers to focus on strategic work.
  • Identify actionable information and plan for the future.

Optional Dell Networking W-Series AirWave Wireless Management Suite (AWMS) is a multivendor network management software suite that delivers a consolidated view of the RF environment, controllers, APs and the wired infrastructure through an intuitive user interface.
