A Highly Cost-Effective Platform Optimized WLAN Performance

The NX 5500 multi-core network processing platform supports up to 512 access points, well suited for small to midsize deployments. Its rich set of integrated services — including router, firewall, VPN, AAA/Radius server and DHCP/DNS server — eliminates the need for any additional hardware without compromising system performance. And the integrated application visibility engine provides the necessary intelligence to identify, categorize, and filter/block/control network bandwidth usage based on your business needs.

Centralized Management and Control From the NOC through NX/VX

A distributed, multi-network NX 5500 deployment can be controlled and managed at the NOC through your NX9XXX/NX75XX/VX9000 — giving you single-pane-of-glass management for easy provisioning and day-to-day monitoring and troubleshooting of your entire WLAN infrastructure.

Powered by the Advanced WiNG 5 Operating System

The ExtremeWireless WiNG 5 OS provides the advanced intelligence required to create the “fully network-aware” WLAN, allowing every piece of infrastructure in your wireless network to work together to route every transmission as efficiently as possible.
