Overview

WLA532 delivers great user experience and lower operating and capital costs by tightly integrating security, performance, and manageability with great reliability.

Its energy-efficient 802.3af PoE power design, dual radios, 3x3 MIMO, 3 stream, and 1GbE uplink port, are packaged in the smallest footprint in its class. And its six internal cross-polarized antennas use 5 degree down-tilt to deliver maximum signal strength.

WLA532 requires fewer access points per floor reducing CapEx, and improved reliability reduces IT staff for lower OpEx. The WLA532E external antenna plenum rated model allows for more deployment flexibility.

WLA532 delivers 450 Mbps link speed per radio for 10x better performance than legacy 802.11a/g, and 50 percent more bandwidth and capacity than previous generation 11n access points.

Local switching provides low latency and high performance, and advanced VLAN tunneling, and dynamic RF auto-tuning management provides cutting-edge performance.

Enabling BYOD for students and faculty

The University of the West of Scotland Case Study

University of the West of Scotland Implements a Multi-Campus Wireless Network that Supports BYOD

When seamless wireless coverage became a key UWS objective, the IT team took a fresh look at their existing infrastructure, which made wireless connectivity available only in very small pockets of the university, and with uneven coverage.

University of West Scotland uses the WLA522 with

  • WLC2800

    WLC2800 is designed for mass deployment of wireless LAN access in large enterprises with support for up to 512 802.11n access points.

  • RingMaster Software

    Develops an RF plan for each building, builds outdoor obstacle maps, and determines the number and precise indoor and outdoor locations of access points.
