Wireless Switch

Simple, cost-effective wired and wireless networking for enterprise branch offices

The WS2000 Wireless Switch is a powerful all-in-one solution that simplifies and reduces the costs of managing wired and wireless (802.11a/b/g) networks in enterprise branch offices. The integrated router, gateway, firewall, Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) and more eliminate the cost of purchasing and the complexity of managing multiple pieces of equipment. Support for Wi-Fi Multimedia extensions (WMM) enables the WS2000 to provide peak performance for even the most demanding applications, including voice and video. The ability to easily and cost-effectively scale to meet growing needs, as well as upgrade to support new security, radio and other standards provides the assurance that the WS2000 will meet your needs today and tomorrow. The WS2000 - enterprise-class networking functionality, priced for the small to medium-sized business or enterprise branch office.

End-to-end enterprise-class security

Protect your network and data with end-to-end enterprise-class security with support for WPA2, an integrated AAA (authentication, authorisation and accounting) server for authenticating users, Rogue Access Port/Point (AP) detection, Stateful Packet Inspection Firewall and more. Your network resources are safe - only authorised users are granted access to your network. With the WS2000, your network perimeter and your resources are more secure.

Easy to manage and deploy

The WS2000 offers a level of management simplicity and flexibility that eliminates the need and cost for onsite IT personnel to manage the wireless networks. Less technical onsite staff in restaurants, retail stores, warehouses and healthcare clinics can easily manage the wired and wireless network through an intuitive web-based interface and centralised management and control of Access Ports. For larger corporations deploying the WS2000 in branch offices, secure remote management capabilities (with SSH and SNMP v3 support) and auto deployment capabilities (with DHCP options) enable staff in the centralised network operations or data center to easily control and manage devices anywhere in the world. Implementation is fast and easy: the plug-and-play WS2000 automatically detects and configures Access Ports with the best channel. And tight integration with the wired network simplifies the extension of wired virtual LANs (VLANs), improving network performance as well as providing added protection against unauthorised access.

Ideal for hotspots

The WS2000 is uniquely suited for hotspots, enabling hotels, airports, lounges, restaurants and more to offer visitors convenient anywhere anytime access to the Internet, email, and corporate applications. Support for authentication and Radius accounting enables organisations and service providers to offer secure wireless public access, either as a complimentary service, or an additional revenue stream.

Lower Total Cost of Ownership (TCO)

The WS2000 eliminates the complexities and reduces the costs associated with deploying, managing, securing, upgrading and scaling your wired and wireless network - delivering outstanding investment protection and a lower TCO. Symbol Enterprise Mobility Services provide the comprehensive support and technical expertise you need to design, deploy and maintain the most successful mobility solutions.
