Working in unison with HP MSM access points, the HP MSM Controller series delivers high-performance networking solutions. The enhanced architecture scales to 802.11n without requiring controller replacement. Scalable from small to larger deployments, the MSM wireless controller supports a fast-roaming capability. Wireless security is comprehensive with support for internal and external authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) servers, built-in stateful firewall, per-user VLAN mapping, and authentication.
Supports per-wireless client ingress-enforced maximums and per-wireless client, per-queue guaranteed minimums.
Layer 2 and Layer 3 QoS settings are maintained when using mobility traffic manager or guest access.
Enforces firewall policies to control traffic and filter access to network services; maintains session information for every connection passing through it, enabling the firewall to control packets based on existing sessions.
Authenticated network access
Authenticates users with an internal or external RADIUS server or Microsoft Active Directory before allowing full network connectivity.
Management interface control
Allows interfaces to be enabled or disabled depending on security preferences.
Segments traffic to and from management interfaces, including CLI, web browser interface, and SNMP.
RADIUS accounting support
Separates RADIUS accounting server support per SSID; provides detailed session, usage, and billing information for each client activity.
IPv6 wireless client traffic forwarding
Supported for Layer 2 and Layer 3 mobility (MTM) and for client traffic directly bridged at the AP.
Powerful security capabilities
Robust, identity and role-based user account profiles use internal or external AAA services.
