WiNG Wi-Fi

Extreme WiNG Motorola WLAN components(formerly Zebra Technologies, Motorola Solutions and Symbol Technologies) wireless LANs represent a complete set of hardware components, services and management features to run a truly enterprise wireless network.

The main components of WiNG WLANs are Access Points and RF controllers.

Types of the Access Points are:
  • Thin AP: Fewer own intelligence, cannot work without an RF controller, and all wireless traffic is tunneled through the RF controller. Examples include Zebra AP100, AP200, AP300, and AP650 (with WiNG 4 only).
  • Dependent AP: Cannot work without RF controller but the wireless traffic must not be tunneled through the RF controller. Examples are AP621, AP622 and AP650 (with WiNG 5 only).
  • Independent AP: They are able to work without an RF controller. RF controller can be used for their central management or extending of security.
    Examples of Indepent APs:
    • AP-5131 802.11a/b/g access point (WiNG 3 and 4 only)
    • AP-6521, AP-6522, AP-8132 or AP-8163 802.11a/b/g/n access points
    • AP-7522, AP-7532, AP-8222 or AP-8232 802.11ac access points.

Zebra Solutions offers the following types of RF controllers:

  • RFS4000 - for smaller networks and the installation of the branches, can handle up to 6 Thin APs or 36 Independent/Dependent APs
  • RFS6000 - for medium-sized Wi-Fi network can handle up to 48 Thin APs or 256 Independent/Dependent APs
  • NX4500 - integrated LAN/WLAN solution supporting up to 72 WiNG 5 Independent/Dependent APs
  • NX6500 - integrated LAN/WLAN solution supporting up to 264 Wi-NG 5 Independent/Dependent APs
  • NX9600 - for global Wi-Fi network with up to 10.240 WiNG 5 Independent/Dependent APs
  • VX9000 - virtualized WiNG 5 RF controller

RF controllers can be connected together into clusters to manage and secure large Wi-Fi networks exceeding boundaries of countries.
