Wireless networking solutions from Motorola June 2014, IT infrastructure
Westcon has announced three new wireless network management solutions from Motorola Solutions, namely the VX 9000, NX 7500 and the EX 3500.
Motorola is now offering new solutions for easy migration to the cloud, products that provide a centralised Access Point management model, as well as form part of a unified wireless infrastructure.
The first device, the VX 9000, is a virtual controller that combines the power of virtualisation with Motorola’s WiNG Controller. The VX 9000 brings together the cost-effectiveness of virtualisation with the high-performance of the wireless services, endless scalability, deployment flexibility and centralised management of the entire wireless network creating a new level of simplicity and much needed hardware independence to the wireless LAN.
According to Westcon, this range is easy to deploy through public clouds or through the NOC and it can be installed on any existing hypervisor such as Citrix XEN, VMware ESXi or Microsoft Hyper V without the need of a new hardware. Also, customers can now run multiple instances of the VX 9000 on a single server, reducing costs and space and power requirements in the network operations centre.
The controller can support up to 25 000 access points, therefore there is no need for purchasing different controllers for different access point capacities. Customers can run VX 9000 on a commodity server as it has no unique hardware requirements.
Secondly, the NX 7500 is a multi-service platform that brings advanced WLAN performance and single point of control simplicity to the mid-size WLAN. Designed for mid-sized enterprises and campus environments, the NX 7500 offers comprehensive management of up to 2048 network elements through a single pane of glass.
Virtualised framework and an integrated 500 GB hard drive allow hosting, deployment, and management applications directly on the NX 7500, therefore eliminating the need to purchase and manage additional hardware. The controller can be used for centralising management functionality.
Lastly, the EX 3500 Series Ethernet switch addresses all of the access layer needs of a customer’s branch and remote office deployments. Now, users can easily support their wired networking requirements, as well as monitor and manage their entire wired and wireless network with a single management window pane.
This solution also boasts the added advantages of centralised management through Motorola Solutions WiNG-based NX Integrated Services Platforms. Easy support for a wide variety of wired networking requirements also allows easy monitoring and management of all wired and wireless equipment with the simplicity of a single pane of glass, reducing management time and complexity.
