EWS101

Edgecore EWS101 WLAN gateway-controller is an ideal solution for distributed site deployments and SMBs that require cost-effective Wi-Fi access control.

The EWS101 is an entry-level wireless LAN controller that provides enterprise-grade functionality for SMBs, retail/chain stores, and distributed sites. With AP management, user authentication, policy assignment, traffic shaping, firewall features all packaged into a single box, the EWS101 allows smaller organizations with minimal IT resources to enable the same level of network security and management capabilities as their large enterprise counterparts. The EWS101 is extremely affordable, easy to deploy, and simple to manage, making it the ideal choice for SMBs needing a comprehensive Wi-Fi solution.

The EWS101 is capable of managing up to 50 ECW/ECWO-series Wireless Access Points, which can be deployed and configured easily by anyone, including non-wireless savvy users. For example, automated AP discovery prevents network administrators from having to go through the hassle of individually adding and configuring each access point. Access points as well as connected Wi-Fi devices can then be monitored and managed from a centralized point, with extensive logging & reporting features to assist in troubleshooting and maintenance.

As Wi-Fi enabled handheld devices such as smartphones and tablets become ever so prevalent in our daily lives, businesses and network operators alike are faced with a mind-boggling dilemma – how to simultaneously address the needs of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), manage Wi-Fi users, and maintain network service quality for mission critical applications. The EWS101 is designed exactly with these requirements in mind, and with a total cost of ownership that satisfies even the most price conscious, organizations are guaranteed to receive an unmatched ROI on their wireless LAN infrastructure.
