The guest account generation function manages guest user bandwidth and accessibility to network resources. With a robust and comprehensive security detection system, the DWC-2000 manages associated APs by blocking potential attacks from 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 client 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. DWC-2000 Unified Wireless Controller Guest Control and Management High Scalability, Availability, and Flexibility The DWC-2000 integrates guest management features that deliver a secure To address today’s fast-changing corporate structures, the DWC-2000 Wireless and easy solution for managing access to the Internet by temporary users in Controller offers flexible optional features: the administrator can purchase a private or public network.

Robust and Optimized Network Limited Lifetime Warranty D-Link offers a Limited Lifetime Warranty on the DWC-2000 Unified Wireless The DWC-2000 offers self-organizing, self-optimizing, and self-healing Controller to further its commitment to product quality and long-term network capabilities to increase the stability of the entire wireless network. customer confidence. 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 Network Implementation within L2/L3 Network in Medium to Large Environments. needs. Capable of regular radio scanning, the DWC-2000 can automatically tune 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, to help prevent 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 Windows Active Directory. This double-layer authentication and authorization establish a robust security fence to avoid attacks from internal networks.
