    D-link Wireless Controller 2000 Product Description

    Simplified deployment and management
    Using the setup wizard,the DWC-2000 can be configured for any network in minutes. Centralized management of remote access points via a simple interface provides the ability to automatically discover compatible D-Link wireless access points,add them into the managed access point list,and set one-time configuration dispatch settings for them. The network administrator can use the controller clustering feature to easily log into one wireless controller and push essential configurations to others within the group. The dashboard displays real-time monitoring of access points and associated client stations to manage network resources efficiently. Furthermore,the graphical widgets on the dashboard can be customized to provide various clients and network statistics at a glance. Combined with system alarms and statistical reports on managed access points,the DWC-2000 is the one stop platform that allows administrators to effectively optimize and manage their network environment.

    Guest control and management
    The DWC-2000 integrates guest management features that deliver a secure and easy solution for managing access to the Internet by temporary users in a private or public network. Each temporary account,or the issued ticket,is accompanied by time-limited or volume-limited Internet access privileges. The guest management service allows batch generation of temporary accounts,and also provides account details to the guest via printout. Furthermore,it can monitor or extend the usage on the specific account manually after account creation and activation. By connecting with payment gateways to authorized credit card or electronic payments,guests can easily purchase the service online.

    Robust and optimized network
    The DWC-2000 offers self-organizing,self-optimizing,and self-healing network capabilities to increase the stability of the entire wireless network. Maximum 4+4 wireless controller redundancy and AP provisioning automatically switches the AP management from the failed controller to the backup in emergency scenarios,giving your network the reliability it needs. Featuring regular radio scanning and performance analysis,the DWC-2000 automatically tunes radio channels and power from time to time to avoid interference and keep the wireless network optimized. To make up for a sudden RF signal vacuum created by a "dead" access point,the DWC-2000 increases the transmission output power of neighboring access points to expand RF coverage for a reliable,high performance network.

    Comprehensive security
    The DWC-2000 provides a comprehensive wireless security solution for easy integration into any network. The Wireless Intrusion Detection System (WIDS) featured in the DWC-2000 detects rogue access points,rogue clients,and can anticipate wireless threats,preventing potential breaches and illegal access before any damage is done to the network. In addition to fundamental wireless security,the Captive Portal feature allows you to block clients from accessing the network until their identities are verified. The captive portal authentication servers cover local,RADIUS,LDAP,POP3 and window active directory. This double-layer authentication and authorization establish a robust security fence to avoid attacks from internal networks.

    High scalability,availability,and flexibility
    To address today's fast-changing corporate structures,the DWC-2000 wireless controller offers flexible optional features:the administrator can purchase D-Link's business wireless plus license packs to upgrade the DWC-2000's capabilities. D-Link offers a range of DWC-2000 managed AP license pack upgrades to increase the number of manageable access points,depending on need. By default,the DWC-2000 manages up to 64 access points,but this can be expanded to 256 access points per controller. With the DWC-2000,as business grows,so does its wireless network.
