Central management
for large-scale WLANs
SCALANCE WLC711 and W780C
Using the SCALANCE WLC711 Industrial Wireless LAN
(IWLAN) controller and the SCALANCE W780C controller-based access points, large-scale wireless
networks can easily be controlled, configured and
monitored from a central location. This means that a
reliable administration of rights and services is possible using extensive security functions for various
user groups, e.g. for administrators, commissioning
engineers or visitors. With two IWLAN controllers in redundant mode, up to 96 access points can be managed
simultaneously.
Without changing the existing network infrastructure,
this opens up new possibilities for communication,
such as use of Voice-over-IP, video or internet access in
one single wireless network.
Answers for industry.

Central wireless management with automated guided vehicles (AGVs) via SCALANCE WLC711 IWLAN controller, W786C-2 RJ45 and W748-1 RJ45
The high-performance SCALANCE WLC711 IWLAN controller can be used in applications where there is a demand for
wide-area radio coverage over an extended distance, e.g.
in depots or in a container terminal. In its maximum configuration, up to 512 WLAN clients can simultaneously have
a safe and stable connection to the network via WLAN. By
using extensive safety functions, the widest variety of services – such as VoIP, Internet access or process diagnostics
– can be transmitted in parallel within one wireless
network.
Thanks to MIMO functionality, the wireless connection is
extremely stable at data rates of up to 450 Mbit/s, even
when deployed outdoors under extreme conditions. The use
of two IWLAN controllers in redundant mode offers a high
level of availability, while the automatic reconfiguration of
the WLAN achieves a high level of reliability. Furthermore,
there is the option of setting up intermeshed networks in
order to guarantee an even greater flexibility of the wireless
network. Thanks to the central administration, significant
reductions can be achieved in terms of downtimes and
maintenance costs.
