What is a WLAN and Why Do I Need One?

What is a WLAN and Why Do I Need One?

Whether it's home working, a business or an organisation, signal distribution is crucial.  Removing weak signal Access points in order to allow seamless wireless roaming is necessary in modern life. But how is it achieved? 



This is where a WLAN Controller becomes invaluable.


What Is a Wireless LAN Controller (WLC)?


With the demand for Wi-Fi access increasing, more and more wireless Access Points (APs) are used to ensure signal coverage in campuses and schools, or organization buildings, the larger of which makes the network operations more difficult to distribute and manage. 

Wireless LAN network, also known as WLAN, offers a WLC or Wireless LAN Controller, whose purpose is to centralize the control of Access Points (APs).

A wireless Access Point (AP) takes the bandwidth coming from a router device and extends it so that multiple other devices can connect. 

 

Due to the centralized position and brainpower, the Wireless LAN Controller is aware of the wireless LAN environment. It provides services that can lower the price of deployment, provide security and ease the management process.

Do I Need a Wireless LAN Controller in My Network?

Whilst it depends on your situation, If you have more than four or five APs, or a growing network, a WLAN controller is a wise investment. It is a timesaver for both maintenance and management. 

Our 4-Way WLAN Gateway Controller automatically performs roaming functions when used with our range of Proception WiFi access points, monitoring signal levels whilst supporting load balancing, doing all of the hard work for you.
