Optional controller
functionality
(Optional licenses)
•Wireless Intrusion Protection (WIP): Safeguard against wireless security threats, provide visibility into sources of RF interference, and eliminate the need for separate RF sensors
and security appliances.
•Policy Enforcement Firewall (PEF): Provide identity-based controls to enforce application-layer security, prioritization, traffic forwarding and network performance policies for
wired and wireless networks.
•Policy Enforcement Firewall with VPN (PEFV): Create a secure tunnel and allow your virtual private network (VPN) traffic to enter the controller.
•Advanced Cryptography (ACR): Deliver military-grade cryptography and enable secure access to networks that handle classified information.
Guest access/BYOD,
management and VPN
•AirWave Wireless Management System (AWMS): Use Dell’s multi-vendor network management software for a consolidated view of the RF environment, controllers, APs, and the wired
infrastructure, with an intuitive user interface. AirWave can manage all Dell W-Series wireless products and provide visibilty and troubleshooting for your existing vendor networks
•Virtual Intranet Access (VIA): Create a secure VPN for remote users that intelligently configures connection settings on their mobile device and transparently authenticates without
complicated logins.
•ClearPass: Trust this highly integrated access management solution for all things BYOD. The Dell ClearPass device connects to your existing network to securely onboard devices, admit
users, display usage, perform health assessments and manage policies while maintaining appropriate security and service levels. Its selfregistration portal frees your IT staff from the manual
setup process. ClearPass models are designed to accommodate from 500 to 25,000 concurrent users/devices.
Controller-Based Wireless Access Points and Instant Access Points
The Dell W-Series controller-based ecosystem is ideal for organizations that seek maximum security, functionality and centralized management features. This architecture can enforce policies and security from one console and meets stringent government and military encryption certifi cations. Controller-based ecosystems can also serve as
a termination point for your VPN. Dell W-Series Instant Access Points (IAPs) combine enterprise capabilities with entry-level simplicity. These intelligent 802.11n devices have a built-in virtual controller and firewall, and require no additional licenses. IAPs can be setup in minutes: simply configure the first device and the other IAPs automatically form a
unified cluster. You can add more capacity by simply plugging in more IAPs. The devices can even migrate to a controller-based ecosystem if you ever decide to expand to a centralized wireless network. The IAP portfolio offers several wired and wireless IAPs that are ideal for remote APs for teleworker and branches. Easily deploy, configure and grow
your network with Dell.
