Motorola Solutions brings scalable WLAN cloud solution VX 9000

Motorola Solutions today announced new VX 9000, a scalable WLAN cloud solution.

The company claims that the VX 9000 software-based virtualized controller supports up to 25,000 access points in a single instance and can scale to support multiple instances.

In addition, Motorola’s new NX 7500 multi-service platform is designed for midsize enterprises and campus environments and offers management of more than 2,000 access points.

Powered by WiNG 5, the NX 7500 ensures optimal RF performance, speed and throughput by enabling every transmission to follow the fastest and most efficient route to its destination, said Motorola Solutions.

Field upgradable to 10G, the NX 7500 Integrated Service Platform offers a built-in solid-state drive for maximum protection of critical data — including analytics and applications.

The EX 3500 switch features gigabit ethernet speed and Quality of Service (QoS) to ensure high performance for applications. Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) support eliminates the need to run power cabling, making installation fast, easy and cost-effective.

The WiNG 5 operating system provides the advanced brainpower required to create network awareness for the WLAN, allowing every piece of infrastructure in a wireless network to work together to route every transmission as efficiently as possible

The company said Motorola’s WLAN Management Service assures performance and availability of business-critical WLAN networks. The service encompasses security and compliance, including rogue identification and threat mitigation; network assurance, which includes troubleshooting, proactive testing and forensic analysis, support for centralized management and policy configuration of Motorola WiNG 5 infrastructure.

Imran Akbar, vice president and general manager, Enterprise Networks & Communications, Motorola Solutions, said: “Motorola’s new suite of solutions allows businesses to extend their networks into the cloud with the most scalable options on the market, whether it be the VX 9000 or NX 7500. Additionally, the new EX 3500 switch will provide true unified access and standardized policies across both the wireless and wireline network.”

Meanwhile, Motorola is announcing new security enhancements to its AirDefense portfolio to help detect suspicious Bluetooth devices. AirDefense’s Bluetooth Monitoring solution can help retailers be on the lookout for Bluetooth-enabled payment card skimmers.
