Reliable, Secure Network
Self-healing and self-optimizing technology
combined with active-backup wireless controller
redundancy ensures reliability and performance.
Easy Guest Management
Features such as ticket generation, user
monitoring, and session extension provide flexible
guest management options.
Scalable Network Architecture
To meet evolving network demands, access point
management can be upgraded from 64 to 256 access
points per controller
Simplified Deployment and Management
Using the intuitive setup wizard, the DWC-2000 can be easily configured for any network.
Centralized management of remote access points via a simple interface provides administrators
with the convenience of automatically discovering compatible D-Link wireless access points,
adding them to the managed access point list, and performing one-time configurations. The
network administrator can use the controller clustering feature to easily log into one wireless
controller and apply configuration changes to other access points in the group.
The web interface dashboard displays real-time status information of all access points and
associated client stations, allowing for efficient network resource management. Furthermore,
the graphical widgets on the dashboard can be customized to provide various client and
network statistics at a glance. Combined with system alarms and statistical reports on
managed access points, the DWC-2000 provides a central platform that allows administrators
to effectively optimize and manage their wireless network environment.
Guest Control and Management
The DWC-2000 integrates guest management features that deliver a
secure and easy solution for managing guest access to a private or public
network. Each issued temporary account (ticket) is accompanied by time or
bandwidth-limited Internet access privileges. The guest management feature
allows administrators to generate a batch of temporary accounts and provide
account details to guests via printout. Administrators can monitor and
manually adjust the bandwidth and time limit for each new issued account
ticket. The DWC-2000 furthermore allows administrators to set up payment
gateways, allowing users to purchase network access online using electronic
Robust and Optimized Network
The DWC-2000 features self-organizing, self-optimizing, and self-healing
network capabilities to increase the stability of the entire wireless network.
A maximum of 4+4 wireless controller redundancy and AP provisioning
automatically transfers AP management from a failed controller to the a
backup controller in emergency scenarios, providing optimal reliability.
Through regular radio scanning and performance analysis, the DWC-2000
automatically adjusts radio channels and transmitting power periodically to
avoid interference and keep the wireless network optimized. In the event of a
sudden loss of wireless signal caused by a “dead” access point, the DWC-2000
will increase the transmission output power of neighboring access points to
expand RF coverage to maintain a reliable, high performance network.
The DWC-2000 provides a comprehensive wireless security solution for
easy integration with any network. The Wireless Intrusion Detection System
(WIDS) feature detects rogue access points, rogue clients, and can detect
wireless threats, preventing potential breaches and illegal access before
any damage is done to the network. In addition to fundamental wireless
security, the captive portal feature allows administrators to block clients from
accessing the network until their identities are verified. The captive portal
authentication servers cover local, RADIUS, LDAP, POP3, and Microsoft Active
Directory. These client authentication and authorization layers also create a
robust security barrier to avoid attacks from within the network.
High Scalability, Availability, and Flexibility
To address the constantly growing scale and needs of business networks,
the DWC-2000 offers several optional features to increase the capacity and
flexibility of your wireless network. Administrators can purchase D-Link’s
Business Wireless Plus license packs to upgrade the DWC-2000 and increase
the supported number of manageable access points, depending on the
needs of the network. By default, the DWC-2000 can manage up to 64 access
points, which can be expanded to 256 access points per controller. With the
DWC-2000, administrators can scale their wireless network to meet higher
demands as business grows.
