Reliable, Secure and Scalable Wireless Controller for Mid-sized Businesses, Schools and Hospitals
The NETGEAR ProSAFE® Wireless Controller WC7520 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.

  • Seamless L2 and L3 fast roaming provide support for latency-sensitive applications such as video, audio and voice over wireless

  • Dynamic RF Management: Automatic controls of AP transmit power and channel allocations ensure coverage by minimizing interferences

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

  • Load balancing and rate limiting ensure fair bandwidth allocation among all clients for robust wireless connectivity

  • Dynamic load balancing of clients across APs is provided based on number of clients per AP, or based on signal strength threshold/data rate threshold of clients per AP
Business Value

  • Customer floor maps: Heat maps by wireless band, wireless channel and signal strength allow real-time reporting of the wireless network status

  • Redundancy for always-on reliability and peace of mind: N+1 redundancy with failover (one cold redundant Controller for 1, 2 or 3 production Controllers)

  • Built to last, the WC7520 Controller is backed by a Lifetime Warranty

  • The scalable WC7520 Controller enables businesses to grow their wireless network as needed with a dramatic return on investment: WC7520 scales up to 50 access points (AP) - and up to 150 access points (AP) with stacking

  • Support of controller redundancy to maximize reliability
Ease of Use

  • Configure the MAC address filters, make SSID changes, and change the password for all access points-all from the single WC7520 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
