Easy to use wireless network management for small networks
The NETGEAR ProSafe Wireless Management Software is an easy to use tool to simplify the set up and maintenance of small wireless networks. Supporting up to five access points, the WMS software provides a single location to configure and upgrade the entire wireless network. Priced less than a single access point, the WMS software provides significant time savings and simplifies the deployment of a wireless network.
Mimicking the set up process of a single access point, the easy to use WMS software enables even novice users to adopt centralized management architecture. With automatic discovery of all supported access points in the network, the WMS software speeds the configuration of a multiple access point network.
By centrally configuring all access points in the network, the WMS software ensures identical wireless parameters and security settings throughout the coverage area so that clients, guests and unwanted intruders all get appropriate access to network resources. Setting up WPA2 encryption keys to keep traffic safe from prying eyes and MAC authentication lists to only allow approved devices on the wireless network can be done once and sent out to the entire network. When used with ProSafe Access Points, the WMS software can configure a guest SSID for the wireless network to allow visitors safe access to the Internet without allowing visibility to company files or resources. Additionally, 802.1x network authentication can be applied for further verification of clients' rights to be on the network.
