Unified Wireless Controller

DWC-2000

The D-Link DWC-2000 Wireless Controller is a centralized Wireless LAN manager designed specifically for education, hospitality, and medium-to-large enterprises. 

Overview

The D-Link DWC-2000 Wireless Controller is a centralized Wireless LAN manager designed specifically for education, hospitality, and medium-to-large enterprises. Out of the box, it can manage up to 64 compatible D-Link Unified Wireless Access Points. With optional upgrade licenses, it can support up to 256 access points per controller, and up to 1,024 access points in a controller peer group, making it cost-effective mobility solution suitable for medium to large scale deployments. Features such as auto-managed AP discovery and single-point management allow users to achieve enterprise class networking without the burden of executing massive and complex configurations. The guest account generation function manages guest user bandwidth and accessibility to network resources. With a robust and comprehensive security detection system, the DWC-2000 manages associated APs by blocking potential attacks from unauthorized users and appliances, which is particularly crucial in wireless environments.

Simplified Deployment and Management 

Using the Setup Wizard, the DWC-2000 can be configured for any network in minutes. Centralized management of remote access points via a simple interface provides the ability to automatically discover compatible D-Link Wireless Access Points, add them into the managed access point list, and set one-time configuration dispatch settings for them. The network administrator can use the controller clustering feature to easily log into one wireless controller and push essential configurations to others within the group.

The dashboard displays real-time monitoring of access points and associated client stations to manage network resources efficiently. Furthermore, the graphical widgets on the dashboard can be customized to provide various client and network statistics at a glance. Combined with system alarms and statistical reports on managed access points, the DWC-2000 is the one-stop platform that allows administrators to effectively optimize and manage their network environment.

Guest Control and Management

The DWC-2000 integrates guest management features that deliver a secure and easy solution for managing access to the Internet by temporary users in a private or public network. Each temporary account, or the issued ticket, is accompanied by time-limited or data-limited Internet access privileges. The Guest Management service allows batch generation of temporary accounts, and can also provide account details to the guest via printout. Furthermore, it can monitor or extend the usage on the specific account manually after account creation and activation. By connecting with payment gateways to authorized credit card or electronic payments, guests can easily purchase the service online.

Robust and Optimized Network 

The DWC-2000 offers self-organizing, self-optimizing, and self-healing network capabilities to increase the stability of the entire wireless network. Maximum 4+4 wireless controller redundancy and AP provisioning automatically switches the AP management from the failed controller to the backup in emergency scenarios, giving your network the reliability it needs. Capable of regular radio scanning, the DWC-2000 can automatically tune radio channels and power from time to time to avoid interference and keep the wireless network optimized. To make up for a sudden RF signal vacuum created by a “dead” access point, the DWC-2000 increases the transmission output power of neighboring access points to expand RF coverage for a reliable, high performance network.

Comprehensive Security

The DWC-2000 provides a comprehensive wireless security solution for easy integration into any network. The Wireless Intrusion Detection System (WIDS) featured in the DWC-2000 detects rogue access points, rogue clients, and can anticipate wireless threats, to help prevent potential breaches and illegal access before any damage is done to the network. In addition to fundamental wireless security, the Captive Portal feature allows you to block clients from accessing the network until their identities are verified. The Captive Portal authentication servers cover local, RADIUS, LDAP, POP3 and Windows Active Directory. This double-layer authentication and authorization establish a robust security fence to avoid attacks from internal networks.

High Scalability, Availability, and Flexibility

To address today’s fast-changing corporate structures, the DWC-2000 Wireless Controller offers flexible optional features: the administrator can purchase D-Link’s Business Wireless Plus license packs to upgrade the DWC-2000’s capabilities. D-Link offers a range of DWC-2000 managed AP license pack upgrades to increase the number of manageable access points, depending on need. By default, the DWC-2000 manages up to 64 access points, but this can be expanded to 256 access points per controller. With the DWC-2000, as business grows, so does its wireless network.
