Virtual WLAN Controller

911262

ALTEN Calsoft Labs offers a Virtual WLAN Controller framework based on “centralized control, distributed forwarding” model for lightweight management and authentication of Wi-Fi services. We address scalability challenges and eases BYOD administration in wireless networks leveraging wireless controllers. The centralized control effectively provides a single window for AP and WLAN Network Management. Our framework has an integrated orchestration feature that allows control of access points across multiple sites through wireless access point controllers.

Virtual WLAN (vWLAN) Controllers enable network performance optimization and centralized control of wireless deployments for both enterprise customers and subscribers with reduced hardware costs. For business services, it can be deployed in the form of a physical appliance on your premises or as a Virtual Network Function (VNF) that operates in your existing virtual environments (such as VMware or KVM). For subscriber services, it is typically deployed as a cloud-hosted application in a service provider’s data center. Our Wiress controller framework has an integrated orchestration feature that enables automated service provisioning, service fulfilment and end-to-end service quality assurance. It offers scale elasticity, management through wireless access point controllers.
