As wifi technology becomes more and more mature and powerful, more customers have more requirements for wifi functions, such as AP controller.
What is an AP controller? Why would you need such a feature? Let's take a look：
An AP controller is a network device used to manage and control wireless Access Points (aps) in enterprise WiFi networks. An AP controller centrally manages multiple aps, providing administrators with a centralized way to monitor and configure wireless access points in a network.
AP Controllers typically provide the following functions:
Centralized management: You can use the AP controller to centrally manage multiple aps, such as configuring, monitoring, and updating firmware.
Automatic configuration: The AP controller can automatically configure new aps without manually setting each AP.
Hot backup: When an AP fails, the AP controller can quickly replace it with a standby AP to ensure network connectivity and stability.
User management: The AP controller is used to authenticate and authorize users to control their access to the network.
Security: The AP controller can provide secure WiFi access, including encryption and authentication.
Statistics: AP controller collects data traffic, number of user connections, AP utilization and other information in WiFi networks, and provides reports and analysis.
An AP controller is usually a stand-alone device, but it can also run as software on a server. Some vendors offer cloud AP Controllers, which can access and manage AP in enterprise WiFi networks over the Internet.
The use of AP Controllers in industry is primarily to manage and control wireless access points in industrial WiFi networks. Here are some possible scenarios:
Production line monitoring: On the production line, AP Controllers can be used to monitor and manage wireless sensors and devices for real-time monitoring and production process optimization.
Logistics and storage management: AP controller can be used to manage and monitor wireless devices in logistics and storage systems, including scanning guns, RFID card readers, wireless printers, etc.
Security system: AP controller can be used to manage and control industrial grade WiFi cameras for video surveillance and security management.
Building automation: AP controller can be used to control and manage wireless sensors and devices in buildings, such as lighting, air conditioning, access control, etc.
Environmental monitoring: AP controller can be used to monitor and control wireless sensors and devices in the environment, such as temperature, humidity, gas, etc.
In general, the application of AP controller in the industrial field is mainly to achieve industrial automation and intelligence, improve production efficiency and safety, and reduce operating costs.
