Hirschmann WLC25 BAT-Controller
for 25 access points, 19" rackmount, 110 to 230VAC.
Hirschmann BAT controllers ensure fast data communications and optimum network availability. These controllers are designed for use in switch cabinets and can be used to centrally configure and manage 25, 50 or 100 WLAN access points respectively. As these controllers are fully compatible to all Hirschmann access points in the BAT series, your existing BAT equipment does not need to be replaced.
These controllers possess four freely configurable Gigabit Ethernet ports plus one USB 2.0 and one serial interface and communicate with the access points via a CAPWAP tunnel. They also support all standard Ethernet LAN and WAN protocols. When the WLAN network is set up the controller automatically finds all the available access points, checks their firmware and configures the equipment appropriately for the installed application. During normal operation the controller provides the administrator with all the necessary network information. In the event that an access point fails, the controller immediately recognizes which device should replace it and automatically integrates it into the network. With their integrated firewall and VPN Gateway function, these controllers can also be used as a security instance between LAN and WLAN or to link a number of wireless networks over large distances.
