APOLLO : AWM-8000

L3 Enterprise Wireless Controller for max 2048 APs

The AWM-8000 is a high-performance smart box-type access controller (AC) developed by AADONA for large wireless networks like enterprises, education, and city-wide deployments.

Integrating both wired and
wireless access means, it offers 10 GE uplink ports and integrates with AADONA smart access points (APs) to form a centrally managed wireless local area network (WLAN) solution. Featuring a flexible port configuration, the AWM-8000 provides sixteen GE combo ports, eight fixed SFP ports, and four 10G SFP+ ports. With 1+1 modular redundant power supplies, the AWM-8000 is preferred for wireless networks of educational departments, governments, and large enterprises where high performance, comprehensive functions, high security, and high reliability are required. The AWM-8000 employs hardware ASICs, which support line-rate forwarding of IPv4/IPv6 Layer 2 and Layer 3 data packets. Powered by AADONA's cutting-edge IPv6 technology, the AWM-8000 is designed with full IPv6 compatibility. The device supports a broad range of static routing protocols including RIP, OSPF, BGP, and PIM, as well as dynamic routing protocols such as IPv6 RIPng, OSPFv3, and PIM6. The AWM-8000 can manage up to 2048 smart wireless APs. The device provides strong WLAN access control through systems such as precise user control and management, complete RF management, and security mechanisms, powerful QoS, seamless roaming, and authentication based on existing networks. Underpinned by a smart cluster management technology, the solution automatically adjusts AP power and channels by monitoring and controlling the RF environment of each AP in real-time, and performing load balancing based on the number of users or traffic to minimize interference to wireless signals and stabilize wireless network loads. The AWM-8000 employs an intelligent temperature control and heat dissipation system, which ensures that the entire system is stable even in heavy load conditions. Chip-level forwarding capability coupled with a rich service array position the AWM-8000 as a wired/wireless integrated smart AC preferred for applications such as WLAN access to campus networks, and wireless network coverage for colleges, hospitals, and hotels.
