Designed for high-bandwidth Wireless LAN (WLAN) deployments, the Brocade Mobility RFS7000 Controller provides highly scalable mobility in large enterprises, campuses, and data centers. The innovative architecture enables a comprehensive set of services, offering unmatched security, reliability, and mobility for high-performance 802.11n networks. Easy to deploy and manage, the Brocade Mobility RFS7000 acts as a converged platform to deliver multimedia applications (data, voice, and video), wireless networking, and value-added mobility services such as guest access and seamless roaming. Next-generation self-healing mesh, RFID locationing services, and centralized management simplify and minimize the costs associated with day-to-day management.

The enterprise-class Brocade Mobility RFS7000 provides the tools to simplify and minimize the costs associated with day-to-day management of mobility solutions. Its underlying architecture helps unify management of network hardware, software configuration, and network policies—and includes comprehensive built-in process monitors and troubleshooting tools.

Highlights include:

  • Provides a reliable, high-performance Wireless LAN (WLAN) communications platform for unifying data, voice, and video services for large-scale enterprise environments
  • Maximizes 802.11n performance by forwarding traffic directly to its destination, eliminating controller bottlenecks
  • Includes advanced wireless features that are standard in the operating system for better Return on Investment (ROI)
  • Uses Smart RF technology to provide dynamic RF tuning for optimal wireless performance
  • Delivers network resiliency through controller clustering and hitless failure
  • Eliminates security gaps with a tiered approach for protecting data in the wired or wireless network
  • Provides stateful Layer 2-7 wired/wireless firewall
  • Integrates Internet Protocol Security (IPSec) Virtual Private Network (VPN) gateway to secure all traffic
