Symbol WS5100 Wireless Controller

The Symbol WS5100 simplifies day-to-day operations with unified management of hardware, software configuration, and network policies. Centralized management also enables the automatic distribution of configurations to all Access Ports - eliminating the need and the associated costs to configure and manage each access point. Adding capacity and new functionality is easier and less expensive than an access point-based wireless LAN. The Symbol WS5100 enables your wireless network to scale easily as your company grows, with a slim 1RU form factor that fits easily into any standard network equipment rack. Each WS5100 supports up to 48 Access Ports and 32 WLANs.
