Mobility Exchange® MX-216R
DATA SHEET
Mobility Exchange MX-216R
Intelligent WLAN Controller for data
center or wiring closet deployment.
Supports up to 192 access points
and features 16 POE ports.
The Mobility Exchange (MX®)
family of intelligent WLAN
controllers provide the
platform for Trapeze Smart
Mobile® wireless networks.
Mobility Exchange MX-216R
The MX-216R is designed for data center, or distributed wiring closet installations, and enables
seamless and secure deployment of enterprise
class wireless networks over any existing L2/L3
network without disruption.
The MX-216R supports up to 192 access points.
Licenses come in increments of 32 supported
MPs for optimum price performance throughout
the growth of your wireless LAN. It also features
2 Gigabit Ethernet ports which accept SmallForm Pluggable (SFP) optics for 1000BASE-SX/
LX fiber connectivity, or 1000BASE-T unshielded
twisted-pair (UTP) environments, 16 10/100 Fast
Ethernet ports with Power-over-Ethernet (PoE)
support, and comes with a redundant power
supply as standard.
Operating in conjunction with Trapeze Mobility
Point® (MP®) access points, and Mobility System
Software™(MSS™), MX controllers can offload
policy enforcement and data forwarding to the
MPs, resulting in optimized traffic flow, radically
reduced latency, and massive scalability.
The MX-216R combines L2 Ethernet switching,
stateful per user and per service firewalls, wireless intrusion protection, 802.1Q trunking and
per VLAN spanning tree (PVST+), complete wired
to wireless quality of service (QoS), and automated RF management. Clusters of MXs called
a Mobility Domain™ provide seamless roaming,
intrusion protection and RF management over
the largest single site wireless LAN deployments.
A Network Domain™ interconnects and distributes Mobility Domains to enable identity-based
networking across wide geographic regions.
MX controllers can be configured as a virtual
controller cluster to provide many-to-many
redundancy, without needing expensive hot
standby controllers. This enables NonStop
Wireless availability for all sessions, even voice
calls in the event that a controller goes offline
for any reason.
The MX-216R uses the same Mobility System
Software as all other Trapeze MX controllers.
For more information about the security and
networking capabilities of the MX-216R, please
read the Mobility System Software data sheet.
