Comprehensive Cloud-Ready Wireless Services, Single Point of Control for Any Size Enterprise.
The Zebra VX 9000 (now Extreme Network’s VX9000) cost-effectiveness of virtualization combines with high-performance advanced wireless services, endless scalability, superior deployment flexibility, and centralized management of the entire wireless network through a single windowpane, bringing a new level of simplicity, cost efficiency, and much needed hardware independence to the wireless LAN.
Users can deploy the Zebra VX9000 in the NOC or on a server in the public cloud, providing the flexibility to easily integrate into existing network architecture. Live migration ensures constant availability—even in the event of a server issue. The WiNG 5 advanced WLAN operating system delivers superior performance by empowering every piece of infrastructure in a WLAN with the “network awareness” required to route every transmission as efficiently as possible. Bottlenecks that are typical when all traffic must be routed through a centralized controller are eliminated.
Best-in-class gap-free security keeps any network and its data safe. With hierarchical management, users get a single highly intuitive graphical user interface that allows for easy management of a network—no matter how many locations, and whether those locations are across town or around the world. The Zebra VX 9000 Virtualized WLAN Controller brings extraordinary cost-efficiency to virtually any size WLAN: simply license the number of access points already in use, and add whatever is needed in the future, up to 10,000 access points per Zebra VX 9000 instance.
Innovative Features of the Zebra VX 9000 Virtualized WLAN Controller
Comprehensive integrated network security services
Features include wired/wireless firewall, built-in wireless intrusion protection system (IPS), integrated IPSec VPN gateway, AAA Radius Server and secure guest access with a captive web portal, MAC-based authentication, 802.11w to secure management frames, NAC support, anomaly analysis, and advanced security services such as role-based firewall.
Advanced WiNG 5 OS
the WiNG 5 OS provides the advanced brainpower required to create the “fully network aware” WLAN, allowing every piece of infrastructure in a wireless network to work together to route every transmission as efficiently as possible.
The Zebra VX 9000 offers the advantage of fast and easy zero-touch installation. Moreover, rule-based access point and nX 4500/6500 adoption from all locations automates equipment discovery and deployment.
Simplified license management
Users can distribute and use access point licenses based on actual load per site/location—meaning there is no need to provision each location individually.
With the Zebra VX 9000, users simply pay as they grow—just purchasing the amount of access point licenses needed today, and easily adding whatever is required in the future. There is no need to purchase a different controller for different access point capacities—each instance of the VX 9000 can support up to 10,000 access points, providing a real scalable solution for cloud deployments.
