The WS6028 wireless access controller (AC) is part of the Amer Acuity line of enterprise class manageable wireless solution. The unit is shipped with a default license for 32 Amer Acuity access points with expansion possible to a maximum of 256 AP. Mutiple controller units may also be clustered to support a maximum of 64 controllers.

The WS6028 is ASIC engineered to support line rate forwarding of IPv4/IPv6 Layer 2 (L2) and Layer 3 (L3) data packets. In addition to full IPv6 compatibility this device supports a broad range of static routing protocols including RIP, OSPF, BGP and PIM, as well as dynamic routing protocols such as IPv6 RIPng, OSPFv3 and PIM6.

The WS6028 employs an intelligent temperature control and heat dissipation system adding to its reliability and resiliency ensuring efficient operation even during heavy load conditions.

With advanced management features like precise user management control, RF management, advanced security features, QoS, seamless roaming and authentication coupled with the chip-level forwarding capabilities the WS6028 is an effective and performance rich controller ideal for an array of WLAN applications.
