Dell PowerConnect W-620 Controller | Installation Guide
Chapter 1
About the W-620 Controller
The Dell PowerConnect W-620 Series Controller is an enterprise-class, wireless LAN controller. This controller
connects, controls, and integrates wireless Access Points (APs) and Air Monitors (AMs) into a wired LAN system.
The W-620 Series is capable of supporting up to 8 external, campus connected APs.
Minimum Software Requirements
The W-620 Series Controller requires ArubaOS 5.0.2 or later.
Note: The master controller, its redundant master controller, and all of its local controllers must run on the same code of ArubaOS.
Once you upgrade your network and install an W-620 Series Controller into your network, verify that the software version on your
controller matches the rest of your network.

ExpressCard Slot
The W-620 Series is equipped with one ExpressCard slot, which can be used with an EVDO device.
Port LEDs
In non-rack deployments, the W-620 Series is placed with the front facing out. This allows the cables to be
hidden and create a more aesthetically pleasing look. Therefore, a set of LEDs displaying link activity on the ports
is placed on this side. For information about the behavior of these LEDs, see Table 3.

AC Power Socket
The W-620 Series supports integrated AC powering and the AC power socket on the rear of the unit is for use
with an AC power cord (country-specific). Refer to Appendix A, “Specifications, Safety, & Compliance” on
page 15 for power specification details.
10/100BaseT Ethernet Ports
There are eight 10/100BaseT Ethernet ports on the W-620 Series. Ports 0 through 3 support Power over Ethernet
(PoE). Ports 4 through 7 do not support PoE and do not have a PoE LED. Instead, they have an LED labeled 100,
which indicates interface speed. For information about LED behavior, see Table 3.
10/100/1000Base-T Gigabit Ethernet Port
There is one 10/100/1000Base-T Gigabit Ethernet (RJ-45) port on the W-620 Series. Gigabit Ethernet uses all
eight wires and each pair is used in a bi-directional fashion, meaning the same pairs are used for both data
transmission and reception. Figure 3 illustrates the CAT-5 pin-out found on an RJ-45 connector. The CAT-5 pinout pairs the following pins on a 10/100/1000Base-T Gigabit Ethernet port: 1/2, 3/6, 4/5, and 7/8.

Media Eject Button
The W-620 Series is equipped with a media eject button, which allows users to eject a storage device safely and
place the system in standby. When the button is pushed, the storage media device attached to the controller via
USB are unmounted. Printers and EVDO devices are unaffected.
Pushing the media eject button changes the state of the W-620 Series; the table below describes the states and
LED behaviors associated with use of the media eject button.
