Quality of Service (QoS)
- Wi-Fi Clear Connect: Wi-Fi Clear Connect provides a system-wide approach to ensure WLAN reliability by proactively determining and adjusting to changing RF conditions via advanced radio resource management and by identifying rogue activity. These capabilities optimize WLAN performance by making decisions at a system-wide level. These features are described in more detail within this data sheet.
- Advanced radio resource management: Automatic radio power adjustments: includes real-time power adjustments based on changing environmental conditions and signal coverage adjustment. Automatic radio channel: provides intelligent channel switching and real-time interferencedetection. Intelligent client load balancing: balances the number of clients across multiple APs to optimize AP and client throughput.
- Enterprise network management: provided by HP Intelligent Management Center (IMC) Platform Software and the IMC Wireless Services Manager Software module, which effectively integrate traditionally disparate management tools into one easy-to-use interface
- Secure controller management: securely manages the controller from a single location with IMC or any other SNMP management station; controller supports SNMPv3 as well as SSH and SSL for secure CLI and Web management
- End-to-end QoS: the HP 10500/7500 20G Unified Wired-WLAN Module supports the DiffServ standard and 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.
- IEEE 802.1p prioritization: delivers data to devices based on the priority and type of traffic
- Class of Service (CoS): sets the IEEE 802.1p priority tag based on IP address, IP Type of Service (ToS), Layer 3 protocol, TCP/UDP port number, source port, and DiffServ
- Web-based authentication: provides a browser-based environment to authenticate clients that do not support the IEEE 802.1X supplicant
- IEEE 802.1X and RADIUS network logins: support port-based and SSID-based 802.1X authentication and accounting
- WEP, WPA2, or WPA encryption: can be deployed at the AP to lock 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: 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
- IPv6: IPv6 host: enables controllers to be managed and deployed at the IPv6 network's edge . Dual stack (IPv4 and IPv6): transitions customers from IPv4 to IPv6, supporting connectivity for both protocols. MLD snooping: directs IPv6 multicast traffic to the appropriate interface, preventing traffic flooding. IPv6 ACL/QoS: supports ACL and QoS for IPv6 network traffic.
- NAT Traversal: ensures that communciation between a branch office AP and the module is supported when the branch is using NAT.
Resiliency and high availability
- Flexible forwarding modes: - support both centralized and distributed modes. - enable all wireless traffic to be sent to the module for processing using centralized forwarding or dropped off locally using distributed mode. - provide branch office survivability with distributed mode: that is, where APs are deployed at branches, authenticated clients can continue to access local resources in the event connectivity to the controller is lost.
- Wireless user access control and management: support defining settings such as Committed Access Rate (CAS), QoS profiles and access control policies based on location for different applications
- Fast roaming: supports Layer 3 roaming and fast roaming, satisfying the most demanding voice service requirements
- Robust switching capacity and wire-speed processing : deliver powerful forwarding capacity to support large enterprise WLANs
- High reliability: the module supports 1+1, N+1 and N+N backup; the 1+1 redundancy configuration of the modules supports subsecond level failure detection; APs establish AP-module tunnel links with both modules, but only the links to the active module are active; when the active module fails, the heartbeat mechanism between the two modules ensures that the standby module can sense the failure in subsecond level and then inform APs to switch over to it, thus ensuring continuity of services.
- Ease of deployment: these wireless interface cards use the backplane for all network and management communications, with no need for external network power connections
- 128-access point license upgrade: allows you to increase support for additional access points without the need to buy additional costly hardware and use additional valuable space in a chassis. A redundant module must be provisioned with the same number of APs as the primary module.
