The EWS4606I is an enterprise wireless LAN controller. The unit contains four 1000BASE-T ports and one management port, all in a rack-mountable enclosure. The wireless controller centralizes the management and control of APs from a single or cluster of connected units on the wired network. Up to 500 Fit APs can be managed from one controller, and up to four controllers can be clustered together.
The EWS4606I is ideal for Enterprise deployment where a controller cluster can consolidate the RF management of multiple APs, enable network-wide monitoring, and also provide automatic “self-healing” recovery around any failed APs in the network.
