MSG series products are carrier-grade Wireless Access Controllers that combine routing, switching, WLAN Gateway and Access Controller functionality into a unified high-performance system. The products provide centralized control and configuration of Access Points, load balancing, roaming, RF control and many other functions. This approach with all-in-one integrated system helps to optimize TCO related to network deployment and operation.
The MSG2000 is a chassis-based carrier grade Wireless Access Controller that offers extremely high capacity and performance, supporting up to 256,000 clients, and 10,600 access points (APs) on a single, easy-to-use platform.
The Controller offers impressive feature set that helps to simplify deployment and operation of a wireless network, and to optimize capital expenditures. The product supports RF Management, Load Balancing, Roaming, various authentication mechanisms, built-in portal server for web authentication, and others. To further enhance system flexibility, the product supports both central and local forwarding, as well as flexible data forwarding, when an AP can determine whether to forward all data via an AC, or to send it directly to a wired network based on Service Set ID (SSID) and user VLAN.
With its advanced software features and modular design, the MSG2000 offers high scalability, flexibility and reliability required for carrier-class applications. The innovative virtualization and automation techniques implemented on the MSG2000 allow operators to create Virtualized ACs that include several Line Cards in a MSG2000 chassis, or even across several chassis for load balancing, protection and simple system management.
Note: This product is a next generation of MSG2000 Wireless Controller (P/N QXX1904606). It replaces the original MSG2000 Wireless Controller (P/N QXX1437906) that is going to be announced EoS after June 30, 2017.
