The Edgecore EWS100 is an entry-level WLAN gateway-controller that provides enterprise-grade functionality for SMBs, retail/chain stores, and distributed sites. With AP management, user authentication, policy assignment, traffic shaping, and firewall features all packaged into a single box, the EWS100 allows smaller organizations with minimal IT resources to enable the same level of network security and management capabilities as their large enterprise counterparts. The EWS100 is extremely affordable, easy to deploy, and simple to manage, making it the ideal choice for SMBs needing a comprehensive Wi-Fi solution.

The EWS100 is capable of managing up to 10 ECW/ECWO-series Wireless Access Points, which can be deployed and configured easily by anyone, including non-wireless savvy users. For example, automated AP discovery prevents network administrators from having to go through the hassle of individually adding and configuring each access point. Access points as well as connected Wi-Fi devices can then be monitored and managed from a centralized point, with extensive logging & reporting features to assist in troubleshooting and maintenance.

As Wi-Fi enabled handheld devices such as smartphones and tablets become ever so prevalent in our daily lives, businesses and network operators alike are faced with a mind-boggling dilemma – how to simultaneously address the needs of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), manage Wi-Fi users, and maintain network service quality for mission critical applications. Edgecore’s EWS100 is designed exactly with these requirements in mind, and with a total cost of ownership that satisfies even the most price conscious, organizations are guaranteed to receive an unmatched ROI on their wireless LAN infrastructure.
