CW500 Ap Controller

CW500 is an access controller to configure, manage and monitor the IP-COM APs such as W300AP. When you power on the APs, it discovers APs in the network automatically and send the initial configuration to the APs. Then you can manage all the online Aps‘ Description, SSID, Channel, Security, Output Power and define different VLAN ID for APs to bind SSID to VLAN to establish different Internet access right at one place without move everywhere. Hence, CW500 makes network administration more easy, more convenient.
Highlights
● 5 Gigabit Ethernet LAN ports
● Maximum managed number of AP up to 128
● Discover APs Automatically
● Monitor AP/Clients online status

Centralized Management

CW500 can manage and monitor all IP-COM AP such as W300AP in the network. You can modify the description, SSID, channel, security, output power for APs. Also, you can monitor the APs and clients online status.

AP Automatically Discover

After power on the APs in the network, the Aps will get the IP address from the CW500. And then CW500 will discover all the APs automatically.

Branch Network Mode
