Utilizing multiple wireless access points throughout the network provides the performance, coverage, and reliability required by businesses of all sizes. However, individually configuring, deploying, and managing multiple standalone devices can quickly become resource intensive, creating a significant burden on scarce IT resources. The NETGEAR ProSafe WMS5316 Wireless Management System resolves this quandary. With support for up to 16 wireless access points, it provides a single location to configure and manage all wireless access points in the network.
Mimicking the set up process of a single access point, the NETGEAR ProSafe WMS5316 Wireless Management System supports up to 16 wireless access points to provide a single location with which to centrally configure the entire wireless network. The WMS5316 is the ideal solution for businesses and schools with 50-200 users delivering centralized management via an intuitive interface – without the costs that accompany full-service wireless controllers. With a single entry of wireless parameters and security settings that can be simultaneously pushed to all wireless access points on the network, the system dramatically simplifies the deployment and daily management of the wireless network.
The WMS5316 Wireless Management System monitors the wireless network to ensure optimal performance and respond to changes in the RF environment. Once a day, based on a schedule it will automatically re-assign channels and adjust RF parameters for maximum connectivity. WMS5316 can ensure that no single access point is overloaded continuously, by limiting the maximum number of clients per access point.
Supporting a wide portfolio of standard NETGEAR access points, the WMS5316 Wireless Management System enables customers to select the right access points for their needs, even mixing models to provide the right coverage, as well as an upgrade path as technology changes. Supported models include 802.11g access points as well as professional caliber dual band 802.11n access points.
