HP WX5000 Access points & Controller Series

HP Networking Avaya Scopia XT Video Conferencing HP WX5000 Access points & Controller Series

The HP WX5000 Access Controller Series features large capacity, high reliability, and rich services, and offers strong wired and wireless data processing capacity. The WX5000 series provides refined user control and management, a comprehensive RF management and security mechanism, fast roaming, strong QoS and IPv4/IPv6 features, and powerful WLAN access control functions.
Designed for WLAN access of enterprise networks and metropolitan area networks (MANs), the WX5000 series provides an ideal access control solution for the WLAN access of large enterprise campus networks, wireless MAN coverage, and hotspot coverage. The WX5000 series include two models: the WX5002 and WX5004 access controllers. A standard WX5002 access controller supports up to 32 APs, and can support up to 64 with license upgrades. A standard WX5004 access controller supports 64 APs, and can support up to 256 with license upgrades.
  • Flexible forwarding modes
  • Carrier-Class Wireless User Access Control
  • High reliability
  • IPv4/IPv6 dual stack
  • End-to-end QoS
Quality of Service (QoS)
  • End-to-end QoS — developed based on the Comware V5 platform, the WX5000 access controllers support not only the DiffServ standard but also the IPv6 QoS; the QoS DiffServ model includes traffic classification and traffic policing, completely implementing the six groups of services (EF, AF1 through AF4, and BE); this enables ISPs to provide differentiated services for users, making the Internet a true integrated network carrying data, voice, and video services at the same time
  • IEEE 802.1p prioritization — delivers data to devices based on the priority and type of traffic
  • Automatic radio power adjustment — automatic AP power adjustment features analyze user access status in real time, adapting power requirements based on environmental changes and providing high-quality user access signal coverage
  • Automatic radio channel adjustment — intelligent channel switching and real-time interference detection provide the allocation of a high-quality channel to each AP, reducing adjacent channel interference
  • Load balancing — intelligent load sharing analyzes the locations of wireless clients in real time, providing high-quality client throughput regardless of location or number of online sessions
  • Rogue AP detection — regular scans for rogue APs help confirm that the network is secure
  • IPv6 — IPv6 host enables controllers to be managed and deployed at the IPv6 network's edge; dual stack (IPv4 and IPv6) transitions from IPv4 to IPv6, supporting connectivity for both protocols; MLD snooping forwards IPv6 multicast traffic to the appropriate interface, preventing traffic flooding; IPv6 ACL/QoS supports ACL and QoS for IPv6 network traffic
  • IEEE 802.11h ITU compliant — employs Dynamic Frequency Selection (DFS) to automatically select another channel and adjust transmit power to reduce interference with systems such as radar, if it is detected on that same channel
  • Flexible forwarding modes — the WX5000 access controller supports both distributed forwarding mode and centralized forwarding mode, allowing you to set SSID-based forwarding type as needed; in a wireless network of centralized forwarding mode, all wireless traffic is sent to an AC for processing; if there is a wireless network where APs are deployed at branches, ACs are deployed at the headquarters, and APs and ACs are connected over a WAN, the distributed mode will be necessary
  • Carrier-Class Wireless User Access Control — user-based access control is a feature of the WX5000 access controller; for different application scenarios, you can configure different items in a user profile, such as Committed Access Rate (CAR) and QoS policies
  • Fast roaming — supports Layer 3 roaming and fast roaming, satisfying the most demanding voice service requirements
  • High performance — robust switching capacity and wire-speed processing provide powerful forwarding capacity for medium and large enterprise-sized WLANs
Resiliency and high availability
  • High reliability — the 1+1 redundancy configuration of the WX5000 access controller supports sub second-level failure detection; Fit APs establish AP-AC tunnel links with both ACs, but only the links to the active AC are active; when the active AC fails, the heartbeat mechanism between the two ACs helps ensure that the standby AC can sense the failure in sub second level and then inform APs to use links to it, providing service continuity
Layer 2 switching
  • VLAN support and tagging — support IEEE 802.1Q with 4,094 simultaneous VLAN IDs
  • Spanning Tree — fully supports standard IEEE 802.1D Spanning Tree Protocol, IEEE 802.1w Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol for faster convergence, and IEEE 802.1s Multiple Spanning Tree Protocol
  • Jumbo packet support — supports up to a 4 KB frame size to improve the performance of large data transfers
  • Latest high-speed wireless standards — when used with IEEE 802.11n-based APs, provides wireless access six times that of traditional IEEE 802.11a/b/g networks, resulting in expanded coverage and more efficient support for wireless multimedia applications
  • IEEE 802.1X and RADIUS network logins — control port-based access for authentication and accountability
  • Web-based authentication — similar to IEEE 802.1X, it provides a browser-based environment to authenticate clients that do not support the IEEE 802.1X supplicant
  • Choice of IEEE 802.11i, WPA2, or WPA — locks out unauthorized wireless access by authenticating users prior to granting network access; robust Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) or Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) encryption secures the data integrity of wireless traffic
  • Secure Shell (SSHv2) — encrypts all transmitted data for secure, remote CLI access over IP networks
  • Media access control (MAC) authentication — provides simple authentication based on a user's MAC address; supports local or RADIUS-based authentication
  • Secure user isolation — virtual AP services enable the network administrator to provide specific services for different user groups, improving bandwidth and system resources, and simplifying network maintenance and management
  • Pay as you grow — license upgrades allow you to increase support for additional access points without the need to buy additional costly hardware and use additional valuable space in a chassis
