Question
How many management options do we have in ExtremeWireless WiNG?
Environment
  • ExtremeWireless WiNG
  • WiNG Wireless Controller 
  • WING Access Point
Answer
All Extreme WiNG APs provide extensive management options:
  • Standalone AP:  one AP by itself.  No controller needed.
  • Virtual Controller AP:  One AP manages a network of up to 64 other APs.  The Controller AP looks and acts like a full Controller.  
  • Site Controller:  for medium to large sites with more than 128 APs in total, install a Site Controller.
  • NOC Controller:  for multiple small sites with less than 128 APs each, connect to one central NOC controller for global visibility, full network control and management over 10,000 APs from a single NOC instance.
  • Hierarchical:  Combine a NOC controller + site controllers + site APs for a hierarchical management system will massive scalability (25K APs in total, 10k APs per site).
