  • The Black Box SmartPath Enterprise Wireless System combines the stability, security, speed of a wired network with the versatility and adaptability of a wireless network.

    The system combines a distributed WLAN architecture and best-in-class management without large upfront or operating expenses. It uses less hardware and less cabling than similar solutions and can be implemented easily and expanded to meet the needs of your growing enterprise.

    Unlike ordinary wireless, in which access points function as accessories to the wired network, SmartPath is designed as an equal partner to the wired network, making it a practical, smart way to provide wireless at the enterprise level. Multiple SmartPath Enterprise Wireless Access Points work together to provide seamless, efficient throughput to end devices.

    The SmartPath Enterprise Wireless System is ideal for:
    • Distributed enterprise applications
    • Healthcare
    • Manufacturing
    • Retail
    • Education
    • Or anywhere you need secure, high-performance, easy-to-manage WLAN communications.

    The SmartPath Virtual Manager (featured here) is VMware® software for accessing up to 5000 SmartPath Wireless Access Points (LWN602A/LWN602AE and/or LWN602HA/LWN602HAE) on your network. Each single access point license (LWN600MLA-1) you purchase for the appliance is perpetual.

    Through this platform, you can manage your entire wireless system using its user-friendly GUI console. This interface features a customizable dashboard and gives you advanced functionality without unnecessary complexity. Use it for monitoring, upgrades, troubleshooting, and more.

    SmartPath Virtual Manager has an application-like look and feel and is accessible using any standard Web browser running on Windows, Linux, or Mac OSX.

    For complete network visualization, network maps enable you to see topology and status of access points, and real-time heat-maps show RF propagation within your enterprise. The appliance detects both authorized WLAN clients and rogue access points and places them on a map.

    Screens also feature details related to SLA compliance and statistics for reporting purposes. Configuration audit capabilities ensure that all configurations are up to date, and you can set up real-time monitoring of alarms and events from all access points.

    Group policy functions automatically create wireless profiles for your users, and whenever a new laptop joins the domain, wireless access is available in minutes. A policy templating feature enables you to update entire groups of access points with a few clicks.
    For complex organizations, the SmartPath Virtual Manager supports the creation of up to three separate groups of access points that can be managed separately. A conglomerate of multiple business units, for example, can share a single appliance while being separated into their own virtual domains managed by their own administrators.

    You also use the SmartPath Virtual Manager to configure Active Directory for per-user policy enforcement. Supporting multiple policy configurations per an SSID, the system enables you to set up wireless network access by user. Keep data secure by giving guests access to the Internet while allowing only employees to connect to your entire enterprise network.

    You can even set it up so any authorized employee can create guest network accounts via the EMS system's intuitive Web interface—a real time-saver for administrators who are tasked with creating guest accounts on a frequent basis.

    Even better, users can roam to any other site of yours that has SmartPath Enterprise Wireless Access Points and open their laptops, and it's as if they never left their home office. It's that automatic.

    What's more, the SmartPath Virtual Manager provides centralized control without being actively involved in passing traffic or making forwarding decisions. The combination of autonomous access points with centrally based management provides maximum administrative control without creating the traffic bottlenecks seen in some controller-based wireless solutions.

    Also available: cloud-based EMS platforms, available with a 1-year (LWN600CM-1) or 3-year license (LWN600CM-3).
