AC-M1000 is a Network Access Controller specially designed for wired and wireless network in small to medium size businesses. It integrates network management and secures data transmission to ensure a mobile and efficient working environment.
System administrators can effectively monitor wired or wireless users, either employees or guests via AC-M3000/M1000's user management interface. Moreover, administrators can discover, configure, monitor, and upgrade all manageable access points (EW-7206APg) from a single, centralized AP management interface. AC-M3000/M1000 allows administrators to regulate wired and wireless network systems efficiently and protect the network.
