Controller-less WLAN Architecture

Provides enterprise-grade Wi-Fi without the additional hardware expense of a controller

Identity-based Policy Enforcement at the Edge Ensures enforcement of QoS, access control, and security policies at the access point – allowing traffic to be controlled right when it enters the network

IP Address Management

Enables administrator to provision access to remote networks automatically by simply designating subnetwork size and number of branches.
