Working in unison with HPE controllers, the HPE 802.11n Dual Radio Access Point Series delivers high-performance networking solutions. The enhanced controller architecture scales to IEEE 802.11n without requiring a controller replacement. The controller provides advanced radio resource management (RRM), including client load balancing and interference mitigation. The HPE wireless controllers support a fast-roaming capability—an important feature, especially for VoIP communications.
The APs can be used in managed as well as autonomous mode without a controller. The access points provide RF spectrum analysis with detection and classification of non-IEEE 802.11 interference; and they have the ability to automatically avoid interference. Wireless security is comprehensive with integrated Wireless IDS and support for internal and external authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) servers; built-in stateful firewall; per-user VLAN mapping; and authentication. In addition to working with the HPE MSM controllers, these access points work with the HPE 10500/7500 20G Unified WiredWLAN Module, the HPE 800 Series Unified Wired-WLAN Controllers and Switches, and the HPE WX5002/5004 wireless controllers.
