With mobility on the increase, wireless LAN (WLAN) management is becoming more important, as it allows network administrators to better manage assets, reduce losses, improve workplace safety and security, and streamline workflows.

As a performance optimized, hardened device, the Juniper Networks WLM1200 Wireless LAN Management Appliance allows for full life-cycle management for WLAN infrastructure, security and mobility services on a single platform.

Juniper Networks WLM1200 Wireless LAN Management Appliance is a scalable, rackmountable management platform for enterprise WLANs. It comes preconfigured with one of three configurations. It is available as a Mobility Services Appliance (WLM1200-UMSP), or as a Location Appliance (WLM1200-LA) or as a RingMaster Appliance (WLM1200- RMTS).

Mobility Services Appliance

The Juniper Networks Mobility Services Appliance (WLM1200-UMSP), provides a scalable, open platform which allows infrastructure management, security and multiple mobility services software components to be unified within a common framework. The unification of mobility services provides the ability to share and correlate the collective intelligence about the network, users and sessions. The result is dramatically improved services and infrastructure management visibility and control of network resources which provides a foundation for offering and enforcing service level guarantees in future.

The current services in the Juniper Networks Mobility Services suite includes guest access, voice, video, context awareness, real-time location tracking, advanced security and spectrum analysis. Application programming interfaces (APIs) enable third-party partners to integrate a growing ecosystem of value-added services and applications.

Location Appliance

The Juniper Networks Location Appliance (WLM1200-LA) provides fast, and reliable real-time location services for tracking devices on wireless LANs. It enables enterprises to implement location-based security, improve asset utilization, and augment identity-based security policies. The Location Appliance also accurately defines physical boundaries, distinguishing between perimeters such as indoors and out, and it enables location awareness to existing applications via SOAP/XML application programming interfaces (APIs).

RingMaster Appliance

The Juniper Networks RingMaster Appliance (WLM1200-RMTS), which comes configured with the Juniper Networks RingMaster Software, provides full lifecycle enterprise wireless LAN management, including the planning, configuring, deploying, monitoring, and optimizing of WLANs. The RingMaster Appliance has fully redundant dual RAID storage and supports up to 5,000 indoor and outdoor access points.

Features & Benefits:

Mobility Services Appliance

The Mobility Services Appliance combines the server components of RingMaster, SmartPass, the Location Appliance and other Mobility Services on a common platform to reduce the number of wireless LAN management servers or appliances required to manage, secure and troubleshoot wireless LANs.

By combining multiple functions on one appliance, enterprises can deploy and optimize wireless LANs more easily and more quickly, without sacrificing long term scalability of these management functions. This delivers substantial CapEX and OpEx savings over deploying and managing multiple single-function appliances or servers.

The Mobility Services Appliance is targeted at medium-sized wireless networks or individual sites up to 250 access points. As the enterprise grows and expands, individual management functions can be migrated from the combined platform and implemented each, on their own dedicated appliance. This preserves the integration and data correlation between the various management modules while increasing overall management scalability

Key Mobility Services Appliance Features

  • Single box management solution for mid-sized businesses, and for mid-sized individual sites
  • Supports up to 250 access points
  • Provides easy scaling for growing networks
  • Supports location tracking for 2,000 tracked devices
  • Provides low maintenance, out-of-the box operation
  • Substantial CapEX and OpEx savings

Location Appliance

The Location Appliance enables enterprises to quickly and accurately find, track, and secure highly mobile people, devices and valuable assets in real time over existing Wi-Fi networks. The Location Appliance provides extremely precise location awareness for thousands of devices over a wireless LAN, and it enables a host of mobile enterprise applications with location awareness.

Reliable and Accurate Detection
The Location Appliance delivers high-performance location tracking with rapid response times and breakthrough levels of accuracy and precision. Because no additional client software is required, the WLM1200 can track any 802.11 device on any band, including 802.11n. And, unlike other location tracking systems which require constant recalibration, the Location Appliance is not affected by changes in the transmit power settings of access points collecting positioning data, ensuring higher accuracy and reliability.

The Location Appliance accurately recognizes physical boundaries such as indoors versus out, and offers excellent 3D resolution in multi-floor facilities or multi-tenant buildings.

Location Tracking Performance
The Location Appliance uses patented, server-side, received signal strength indicator (RSSI) pattern matching techniques that enable the tracking of up to 4,000 devices with speed, accuracy, and greater precision than other typical Wi-Fi positioning methods.

  • 99% accuracy at 10 meters
  • 97% accuracy at 5 meters
  • 95% accuracy at 3 meters
  • 30 second average seek time
  • 10 second minimum seek time

Visual Display of Device Location
The Location Appliance is tightly integrated with RingMaster, allowing device locations to be displayed through a graphic dashboard, with visual floor plans that identify the real-time location of all Wi-Fi devices, asset tags, and access points. The dashboard also shows associations between devices and access points to assist IT help desk personnel with troubleshooting issues.

Application Programming Interfaces
As a foundation for advanced real-time location services over wireless LANs, this appliance can add location context via SOAP and XML APIs to existing applications such as asset tracking and management, location-based security, and content delivery.

Advanced Real-Time Location Services
With Juniper Networks SmartPass, the Location Appliance allows enterprises to augment identity-based security policies with location awareness in order to dynamically adjust user and guest access privileges based on the current location of the user. In addition, geo-fencing capabilities allow enterprises to implement a perimeter radio-frequency (RF) firewall to lock down unauthorized access attempts from outside the premises.
