Multifunctional WHITESKY WA111 is an entry level access point for medium density and small business deployments. The WA111 Indoor Wi-Fi access point provides a high throughput and seamless user experience. Featuring enhanced RF RDA technology, a cluster architecture design, and a management mechanism based on a user’s role, the WA111 enables high capacity, excellent performance, and simplicity for small wireless LAN (WLAN) deployments. It also provides plug-and-play WLAN deployment making it ideal for small to medium-sized enterprises.
WA111 is a dual-radio, 802.11ac 2x2 MIMO, indoor wireless access point. Powered by multi-core CPU processor, the WA111 has fast encoding and decoding capabilities and provides reliable multiuser access. It supports up to 1.167Gb/s wireless data rate and up to 256 associated clients.
The WA111 works in a fully redundant cluster architecture to provide simplified plug-and-play deployments. The access point (AP) cluster is an autonomous system that consists of a group of WHITESKY APs and a virtual controller, which is a selected access point for cluster management. One AP cluster supports up to 64APs.
The access point cluster architecture ensures simplified and quick deployment. Once the first AP is configured using the configuration wizard, the remaining APs in the network will come up automatically with updated configuration. This ensures that the whole network is up and functional within a few minutes.
Network Management Platform deployment
The WA111 can be managed by WHITESKY CSP (Cloud Service Platform) or WHITESKY ESP(Enterprise Service Platform). APs is managed as one or more AP Groups (a logical grouping of one or more access points). The WHITESKY Network Management Platform embeds a visionary controller-less architecture, providing user friendly workflows for WLAN management together with integrated Authentication Manager which helps define authentication strategy and policy enforcement for Employees, Guest Management and BYOD devices. The network administrator can obtain a comprehensive view of applications running in the network and apply adequate control to optimize the performance of the network for business critical applications. Management platform provides advanced options for RF Management, wIDS/wIPS for intrusion detection and prevention.
Quality of service for unified communication apps
The WA111 supports fine tuned, quality of service (QoS) parameters to differentiate and provide appropriate QoS for each application such as voice, video and desktop sharing. Application aware RF scanning avoids interruption of real-time applications.
Integrated guest management
The WA111 supports role based management access to the AP cluster which includes Admin, Viewer and GuestOperator access. The GuestOperator access simplifies guest account creation and management, and therefore can be used by any non-IT person, such as a front desk or receptionist. The WA111 also supports a built-in customizable captive portal which enables customers to offer unique guest access.
Radio Dynamic Adjustment (RDA) technology automatically assigns channels and power settings, provides DFS/TPC, and ensures that access points stay clear of all radio frequency interference (RFI) sources to deliver reliable, high-performance wireless LANs. The WA111 can be configured to provide part-time or dedicated air monitoring for spectrum analysis and wireless intrusion protection.
