. The Wireless LAN Controller supports minimum 5,000 APs and 50,000 wireless terminal devices

. The Wireless LAN Controller supports at least 20 Gbps throughput

. The Wireless LAN Controller needs to provide usage status report, monitoring, flow analysis, and troubleshooting features

. Supports N+1 redundancy

. Automatically adjust the frequency and wattage based on the radio frequency environment



. Easy installation

. Wireless access points support seamless roaming

. Fast and stable network speed

. Wireless LAN Controller provides Central Authentication Service (CAS) and manages all wireless access points

. Supports local forwarding to shorten the data transmission time



This project uses the FTTH (Fiber to The Home) service which is built by the local telecom company at government organizations, parliaments, and hot spots as a base to connect to Wi-Fi network.

Z-COM is responsible to provide solutions to integrate indoor and outdoor wireless access points with Wireless LAN Controllers.

User can monitor the real-time status such as the number of connecting access points, terminals, SSIDs, and total data throughput.

Z-COM also provides more value-added features to allow IT administrators to arrange and manage the user levels for network usage, such as to customize the network connection settings, data flow rate, and network security level. Configuring a specific network service for special officials. When officials such as ministers, diplomats, or policemen enter the wireless signal coverage, the access point can identify the official based on the ID settings, and have the priority to use the channel with the best connectivity.
