Wireless LAN (WLAN) switch/controller and
voice communications platform
The RFS6000 Enterprise WLAN Switch/controller
from Motorola enables the wireless enterprise
by offering an integrated WLAN communication
platform that delivers secure and reliable voice, video
and data applications. Designed on the innovative
and modular Wi-NG operating system, the RFS6000
provides wired and wireless networking services,
multiple locationing technologies such as Wi-Fi
and RFID; resiliency via 3G/4G wireless broadband
backhaul; and high performance with 802.11n
networks. The enterprise class RFS6000 delivers
the best in class performance, security, scalability
and manageability required to meet the needs of
demanding mission critical business applications.
Cost-effective centralized management
Based on Motorola’s landmark Wireless Next
Generation (Wi-NG) operating system, the RFS6000
provides the tools you need to simplify and minimize
the costs associated with real-time management of
mobility solutions. The Wi-NG architecture provides
unified management of network hardware, software
configuration, and network policies, complete with
built-in process monitors and troubleshooting tools.
In conjunction with the RF Management Suite (sold
separately), the RFS6000 provides centralized control
over the entire lifecycle of your Motorola mobility
solution — allowing you to easily design, deploy,
monitor and secure your wireless network.
Raising the bar on enterprise class
performance and network resiliency
The RFS6000 offers a multicore, multithreaded
Wi-NG architecture capable of supporting 2,000 to
20,000 mobile devices and up to 48 dual radio 802.11
a/b/g thin access points or 256 adaptive access
points (AP-5131 a/b/g or AP-7131 a/b/g/n) per switch/
controller. Motorola’s patent pending clustering
technology allows a 12X capacity increase, for buildas-you-grow networks. The result is an architecture
that is purpose-built to deliver high availability
— and scalability. In addition, a user accessible
ExpressCard™ Slot supports 3G broadband cards
for a redundant wireless WAN backhaul connection,
providing a truly self-sustainable wireless enterprise.
Gap-free security for the Wireless Enterprise
Comprehensive network security features keep
wireless transmissions secure and provide
compliance for HIPAA and PCI. The RFS6000 provides
gap-free security for the WLAN network, following
a tiered approach to protect and secure data at
every point in the network, wired or wireless. This
complete solution includes a wired/wireless firewall,
a built-in wireless intrusion protection system (IPS),
an integrated IPSec VPN gateway, AAA Radius
Server and secure guest access with a captive web
portal, reducing the need to purchase and manage
additional infrastructure. Additional security features
include MAC-based authentication, 802.11w to secure
management frames, NAC support, anomaly analysis
and more.
Adaptive AP: extending
the enterprise
Enables centralized
management of mesh
access points at remote
sites including automatic
firmware upgrades;
provides site survivability
for remote locations with
802.11a/b/g/n networks for
unparalleled resiliency
SMART RF Management

and intelligently adapt
to changes in the RF
environment to eliminate
unforeseen gaps in coverage
Wireless Intrusion
Prevention System
The built-in WIPS system
provides defense against
over-the-air attacks by
leveraging the sensing
capabilities of AP300/
Real Time Locationing
System (RTLS)
Provides rich locationing
services to enable real-time
enterprise asset-tracking
through support for
802.11, RFID and third
party locationing solutions
— including industry
leaders AeroScout, Ekahau,
and Newbury Networks.
Standards-based support
for: EPC Global ALE
interface for processing and
filtering data from all active
and passive tags; and EPC
Global LLRP interface for
passive RFID tag support
Clustering and
failover features
Supports multiple levels
of redundancy and failover
capabilities to ensure
high availability networks;
provides a single virtual IP
(per VLAN) for the cluster
for use as default gateway
by mobile devices/wired
infrastructure, on-board
DHCP/AAA server
synchronized failover; multiplatform license sharing
enables deployment of
cost-effective networks
RFS6000 network architecture
The RFS6000 offers the comprehensive functionality necessary to extend wireless voice, video and data
access inside medium to large enterprises — as well as to remote locations such as branch offices.
Enabling toll-quality voice for
the Wireless Enterprise
Support for VoWLAN provides cost-effective voice
services throughout the wireless enterprise,
enabling push-to-talk and more for employees
inside the four walls as well as outside. The rich
feature set provides granular control over the many
wireless networking functions required to deliver
high performance persistent clear connections with
toll-quality voice. Quality of Service (QoS) ensures
superior performance for voice and video services.
WMM Admission Control, including TSPEC, SIP
Call Admission Control, and 802.11k radio resource
management, ensures dedicated bandwidth for voice
calls as well as better control over active voice calls
for a variety of VoIP handsets. In addition, the fixed
mobile convergence (FMC) ready RFS6000 provides
support for third-party solutions and future services,
including the extension of the desk phone to mobile
devices over the WLAN and WWAN.
The ability to dynamically adjust the power and channels
on any thin access point automatically eliminates the
gaps in coverage that occur when an AP fails or there
is a change in your environment — for example, the
introduction of an increased volume of liquid or metal
— all without any physical intervention. The elegant
feature protects against under- or over-powering —
scenarios that could reduce performance and network
availability. And adjustments are completely transparent
— there is no impact on voice calls and data sessions
in progress — protecting the quality of service and the
user experience to ensure user productivity.
Adaptive AP for increased network
flexibility — and site survivability
The RFS6000 simplifies and reduces the cost of
extending mobility to remote and branch offices as
well as telecommuters. Motorola’s Independent Mesh
Access Points (AP-51X1 a/b/g and AP-7131 a/b/g/n) can
be deployed at remote locations yet centrally managed
in the Network Operations Center (NOC) through the
RFS6000 (single switch or a cluster for scalability).
An IPSec VPN tunnel secures all traffic between the
access points and the wireless switch. Remote Site
Survivability (RSS) mesh access points deliver secure
uninterrupted wireless service — providing unparalleled
resiliency that survives a WAN link outage.
End-to-end support
As an industry leader in mobility, Motorola offers the
experience gained from deploying mobility solutions
all over the globe in many of the world’s largest
enterprises. Leverage this expertise through Motorola
Enterprise Mobility Services, which provides the
comprehensive support programs you need to deploy
and maintain your RFS6000 at peak performance.
Motorola recommends protecting your investment with
‘Service from the Start Advance Exchange Support’, a
multi-year program that provides the next-business-day

performance and resiliency are built into the Wi-NG
architecture — the innovative and modular operating
system (OS) for the RFS6000. These comprehensive
services come at no additional cost and are packaged
together to make mobility work — even better.
