Product Description

Netgear WC7500 ProSAFE Wireless Controller Access Point

 

Fully-featured, centralized wireless management solution designed for SMB and easy to set up

The ProSAFE WC7500 Controller is a fully-featured centralized wireless management solution with a base support of ten (10) 802.11n and 802.11ac Access Points (APs) with license to upgrade to fifteen (15) AP’s. Easy to configure and intuitive to manage, it provides wireless management for small and medium enterprises, primary schools, and small health care customers with minimum total cost of ownership.

Product Overview

Reliable, Secure and Scalable Wireless Controller for Mid-sized Businesses, Schools and Hospitals

The NETGEAR ProSAFE Wireless Controller WC7500 offers a high-performance, fully-featured, yet extremely affordable, Wireless LAN architecture to meet the demands of medium-sized businesses, schools, and hospitals with thousands of users.

Performance

  • Great support for latency-intensive applications (video, audio, voice over wireless) with seamless L2 and L3 fast roaming

  • Minimized interferences and dynamic RF Management: Automatic controls of AP transmit power and channel allocations ensure coverage

  • Robust wireless connectivity: Fair bandwidth allocation among all clients is ensured by load balancing and rate limiting

  • Limiting bottlenecks: Dynamic load balancing of clients across APs based on number of clients per AP or signal strength threshold/data rate threshold of clients per AP

Business Value

  • Self-healing Wireless with automatic WLAN healing after loss of AP or due to RF interferences adapts the power and channel of the other APs around the area

  • Full control by complete view of customer deployment with heat map, wireless channel, and signal strength for real-time reporting of network status

  • Simplified deployment and cost optimization with concurrent support of 802.11n and 802.11ac Access Points

Scalability

  • The scalable WC7500 Controller enables businesses to grow their wireless network as needed with a dramatic return on investment: WC7500 scales up to 15 access points (AP) with base support of 10 AP’s and optional license for additional 5 AP’s.

Ease of Use

  • Con?gure the MAC address ?lters, make SSID changes, and change the password for all access points—all from the single WC7500 interface

  • Triangulation: Administrators can easily locate known APs, rogue APs, and associated clients on the heat map

  • Wireless bundles (for single and dual band APs) for ease of ordering

NETGEAR Warranty

  • This product is backed by a NETGEAR ProSAFE Lifetime Hardware Warranty.
  • Lifetime 24×7 Advanced Technical Support via chat

VLANS DEPLOYMENT
  • The Wireless Controller must have IP connectivity with the access points through the management VLAN. If the Controller and the APs are on different management VLANs, external VLAN routing must allow IP connectivity between the Controller and the APs.
RF PLANNING AND MONITORING
 
INTEGRATED DEPLOYMENT PLANNING
  • Hierarchical view of the network: Floor maps upload and floor maps dimensions input
  • Automated RF planning algorithm: Computed number of APs required to cover a floor plan
  • Theorical cloud coverage indicated for each AP for positionning assistance on the floor plan
RF MONITORING

  • Alert for any detected coverage holes with mitigation options with neighboring APs
  • Rogue AP/blacklisted clients triangulation
RF MANAGEMENT

QUALITY OF SERVICE
 
WMM QUALITY OF SERVICE
  • WMM (802.11e) prioritizes traffic for both upstream traffic from the stations to the access points (station EDCA parameters) and downstream traffic from the access points to the client stations (AP EDCA parameters)
WMM QUEUES IN DECREASING ORDER OF PRIORITY
  • Voice: The highest priority queue with minimum delay, which makes it ideal for applications like VoIP and streaming media
  • Video: The second highest priority queue with low delay is given to this queue. Video applications are routed to this queue
  • Best effort: The medium priority queue with medium delay is given to this queue. Most standard IP application will use this queue
  • Background: Low priority queue with high throughput. Applications, such as FTP, which are not time-sensitive but require high throughput can use this queue
WMM POWER SAVE OPTION
  • WMM power save helps conserve battery power in small devices such as phones, laptops, PDAs, and audio players using IEEE® 802.11e mechanisms
RATE LIMITING
