NETGEAR ProSafe

Overview:

Central Configuration for up to 16 Wireless Access Points

NETGEAR® ProSAFE® Wireless Management Solutions solve the quandary of individually configuring, deploying, and managing multiple standalone wireless access points. With support of up to 150 APs, the Wireless Controller provides a central point to configure and manage your wireless network. Firmware updates and configuration changes can be pushed across multiple APs simultaneously – at the push of a button. Simplify the wireless management and improve user experience with the following key functions:

  • Enable wireless users to seamlessly roam while continuously connected to the network
  • Optimize network with automatic RF channel settings and adjustments of AP output power setting
  • Centrally monitor and manage AP’s for a single or multiple remote sites
  • Protect against intruders via advanced wireless rogue AP detection algorithms
  • Segment guest and corporate access with multiple SSIDs, Guest Captive Portal, and standard based VLAN configurations

WMS5316 Key Features Benefits
Access Point Discovery Discovers NETGEAR Wireless Access Points everywhere on the LAN
Wireless Performance Optimization Allows centralized RF management, Quality of Service (QoS)
Wireless Security Configuration Streamlines security configuration tasks
Wireless Network Monitoring Summarizes managed access point status, rogue access points, wireless clients status, and wireless network usage
Maintenance Operations Provides remote management, and firmware updates for the managed access points on the LAN
Network Configuration Levels Ease of Use Even for Non-professional Users
Basic Settings for a Typical Network The basic settings fit the most common network configurations. All wireless access points belong to the same organization or business.
Advanced Settings for Access Point Groups If completely separate networks share a single LAN, advanced settings allow set up of access point groups. For example, a shopping mall might need access point groups if several businesses share a LAN, but each business has its own network.

Technical Specifications
Wireless Configuration - RF
Wireless Client Status The client status list specifies detailed information about each client node currently associated with managed access points
Wireless Network Usage Network usage statistics display plots of average received/transmitted network traffic per managed access point. Three different plots show Ethernet, Wireless 802.11 b/bg/ng and 802.11 a/na mode traffic separately.
Wireless Network Topology
  • Display topology graph of the managed access points (connectivity graph). The managed access points icons can be moved on the topology background and their locations saved for later displays.
  • Background image file: a floor map jpg/gif image of size 800 x 600 can be uploaded and displayed as the topology background.
DHCP Leases Displays DHCP details for wireless clients which have been allocated IP addresses by the integrated DHCP server or the multiple DHCP server pool (VLANs)
Wireless Configuration - QOS
WMM Quality of Service WMM automatically prioritizes traffic for both upstream traffic from the stations to the access points (station EDCA parameters) and downstream traffic from the access points to the client stations (AP EDCA parameters). Basic QoS settings for all the access points or advanced QoS settings for each access point group are available.
WMM Queues in Decreasing Order of Priority
  • Voice: The highest priority queue with minimum delay, which makes it ideal for applications like VOIP and streaming media
  • Video: The second highest priority queue with low delay is given to this queue. Video applications are routed to this queue
  • Best Effort: The medium priority queue with medium delay is given to this queue. Most standard IP application will use this queue
  • Background: Low priority queue with high throughput. Applications, such as FTP, which are not time-sensitive but require high throughput can use this queue.
WMM Power Save option WMM Power Save helps conserve battery power in small devices such as phones, laptops, PDAs, and audio players using IEEE 802.11e mechanisms.
Max Number of Clients per Access Point Allows the Wireless Management System to set maximum number of client’s limitation per access point or per radio – ensuring that no single access point is overloaded continuously.
Wireless Configuration - Security
Security Profiles Lists Up to eight (8) security profiles per radio can be configured for all the managed access points. If several access point groups have been defined, then up to eight (8) security profiles per access point group can be centrally configured.
Security Profiles settings Name, wireless network name (SSID), broadcast wireless network name, network authentication (open, Shared Key, legacy 801.1X WPA and WPA2 with RADIUS, WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK, WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK), data encryption (none, WEP, TKIP, AES, TKIP+AES), Wireless client security separation (wireless clients can't communicate each other), VLAN ID
MAC Authentication Block the network access privilege of the specified stations through all managed access points or through one or several specific access point group.
Local MAC Address Database The managed access points use the local MAC address table for access control.
Remote MAC Address Dabase (Radius) The managed access points use the MAC address table on an external 802.1x Radius server on the LAN for access control.
801.1x RADIUS Server Settings Four types of 801.x RADIUS server can be configured per access point group:
  • Primary authentication server (main RADIUS server used for authentication)
  • Secondary authentication server: for use if the primary authentication server fails or is unreachable
  • Primary accounting server: used for accounting on the network
  • Secondary accounting server: for use if the primary accounting server fails or is unreachable
Guest Access Guest access settings are useful when configuring a public wireless network (preferably secured VLAN-SSID). The guest access feature is not a captive portal. Guest access settings aim to:
  • Redirect the user to a specified internal Guest web page, or external guest portal
  • Allow users to enter simple information such as an email address
  • Identify sessions and track usage
When guest access is configured, it redirects the first HTTP (TCP, port 80) request to the default guest access page. The last 512 IP access and entered email address are recorded.
Rogue Access Point Detection Unidentified access points that use the SSID of a legitimate network can present a serious security threat. Rogue access point detection is enabled by default on all the managed access points. To detect rogue access points, the managed access points scan the wireless environment on all available channels, looking for unidentified access points.
Wireless Network Monitoring
Monitoring Summary Summary of the managed access points status, rogue access points detected, wireless stations connected, wireless management system information and wireless network usage
Managed Access Point Status Displays status for the managed access points and details per managed access point/group that includes configuration settings, current wireless settings, current clients and current traffic statistics
Rogue Access Points Basic status displays the count of rogue or neighboring access points discovered by the managed access points (instantly and in the last 24 hours):
  • Rogue access points reported
  • Rogue access points in same channel
  • Rogue access points in interfering channels
Wireless Client Status The client status list specifies detailed information about each client node currently associated with managed access points
Wireless Network Usage Network usage statistics display plots of average received/transmitted network traffic per managed access point. Three different plots show Ethernet, Wireless 802.11 b/bg/ng and 802.11 a/na mode traffic separately.
