WLAN Controllers

Automatic configuration via WLAN controller

LANCOM WLAN controllers facilitate the fully automatic configuration of access points, both locally and remotely. The controller's management software detects rogue access points and, if desired, it alerts the administrator. WLAN routers at remote sites can be securely managed. If the connection to the controller should fail, the local WLAN automatically switches to stand-alone mode and keeps your network operational.

Smart WLAN controllers provide flexible concepts for a variety of requirements: Performance and operational reliability can be maximized by breaking-out the payload from the access point directly into the network. At the same time, WLAN management data is forwarded to the central controller. For example, an SSID that is dedicated to providing Internet access via WLAN for guests can be securely separated from the network in a LAN tunnel, even where VLAN structures are not in use.
