D-Link Announces New Wireless Controller Supporting Up to 256 Access Points

D-Link today announced the Unified Wireless Controller (DWC-2000), a new centralized Wireless LAN manager designed for education, hospitality and medium-to-large enterprises. The DWC-2000 can support up to 256 access points per controller, and up to 1,024 access points in a controller peer group.

The DWC-2000 offers self-organizing, self-optimizing and self-healing network capabilities and automatically tunes radio channels and power to avoid interference. To make up for a sudden RF signal vacuum created by a “dead” access point, the DWC-2000 increases the transmission output power of neighboring access points to expand RF coverage.

Detailed specifications are available online at D-Link’s website.
