WLC-700 IWLAN Controllers

Central wireless management

Description

Configure and manage large wireless networks from a central location – using the SCALANCE WLC-700 IWLAN controller and the SCALANCE W780C controller-based access points!

The wireless upgrade of an existing Ethernet network to up to 96 access points without any changes to the network infrastructure opens up completely new options, such as the use of Voice-over-IP, video or internet access in one single wireless network.

Various services, security requirements and access criteria can thus be managed reliably so that administrators, commissioners or guests can use the same wireless network, for example, in a container terminal.
