Motorola WS5100 Wireless Switch

Supplier: Capacity Systems

The WS5100 Wireless Switch provides enhanced support for enterprise mobility, multimedia application and increased security and manageability.



  • Centralised Wi-NG architecture;
  • Comprehensive layered security;
  • L2 and L3 roaming;
  • SMART RF Management;
  • Real Time Locationing System (RTLS);
  • Clustering and failover features;
  • Enhanced End-to End Quality of Service (QoS).
Based on Motorola's landmark Wi-NG (Wireless Next Generation) architecture, the WS5100 enables seamless campus-wide roaming, more robust failover capabilities, enhanced security, improved mobile client battery life and increased voice capacity. Robust security features include integrated IDS/IPS, Stateful Firewall, and IPSec VPN gate way and secure guest access provisioning. Automatic configuration and firmware updates, built-in process monitor, troubleshooting tools and a simple user interface make network deployment and management easy.

 Business needs should dictate network coverage, not the other way around. That's why the Motorola WS5100 allows you to deploy "thin" access ports in Layer 3 network designs and enables campus-wide roaming of mobile clients across Layer 3 boundaries - without requiring additional client software or hardware. Used in concert with Motorola hand-held devices, the WS5100 further enhances the fast roaming capabilities and extends client battery life. WMM (Wi-Fi Multimedia) with "power save"extensions also provides additional voice capacity.

And SMART RF Management takes self-healing to the next level, dramatically reducing network monitoring requirements by enabling the WLAN to intelligently adapt to the ever-changing RF environment.

The WS5100's comprehensive security includes integrated features such as intrusion detection, an IPSec VPN gateway, AAA/Radius server (for WPA/WPA2 termination on the box) and "hot-spot" provisioning capabilities for secure guest access. The stateful packet inspection firewall offers protection against denial of service attacks while optimising network traffic. With support for the wireless security standards of today and the ability to easily upgrade to tomorrow's standards, the WS5100 delivers true value.

RF Management Suite (old separately) provides centralised management of the WS5100 infrastructure in distributed locations. With active /active failover and clustering capabilities, as well as mobile unit load balancing, the WS5100 maximises network uptime while minimising network latency. Each WS5100 supports up to 48 access ports and 32 WLANS.
