Security – It is compatible with all possible security protocols, such as Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP), WPA (Protected Wireless Access) and 802.1X, for example. And the Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) makes it possible to integrate wireless network access to Active Directory (AD) servers and Lightweight Directory Access Protocol (LDAP) servers.

Scalability – It is possible to configure and deploy platforms with a minimum of 50 access points (so-called Access Points), and expand that number by up to 3,000, with controller models capable of meeting the wireless business connectivity needs of all the segments, whether small, medium or large.

Easy configuration and deployment – It is worth remembering that the focus of Corporate Wireless is on the business functionality, not on the network protocols. In this case, all the access points are integrated to the controller, through the

architecture Split-MAC, generating the distribution of the functionalities of this wireless network modality.

Visibility and Traceability – Applications and protocols used by users are detected automatically and transparently through features such as Network Based Application Recognition (NBAR) and NetFlow.
