Features of wireless Access Points

A wireless access point (WAP) is a device that connects one or more computers to a physical wired network that already exists. A wireless access point is an important component in wireless to wired LAN connectivity because it is in charge of negotiating a connection between the end-user and, typically, a wired LAN.

A wireless access point serves as a link between the network's wired and wireless segments. This configuration is also known as infrastructure networking. In some cases, the wireless access point may also include a router, switch, or hub. These devices regulate which data and messages pass through the access point.

Here are the features of Wireless Access Points:

  1. Load Balancing with High Capacity: Wireless networks were originally designed for coverage only, but with so many smartphones, tablets, laptops, and other devices on the market today, wireless networks must be designed for capacity as well. With increased demand on both your wireless and wired infrastructure, high capacity load balancing is required.

  2. Scalability: The popularity of new wireless devices will only grow in the future. Your network must be able to start small if necessary but expand in terms of coverage and capacity as needed—all without the need to overhaul or build an entirely new network.

  3. Coverage both indoors and outdoors: Although you may believe you only require indoor WiFi at first, you may require outdoor coverage as well. For example, parking lots, courtyards, and so on. Your wireless system must have the ability to add outdoor coverage after the fact.

  4. The Ability to Measure Performance: With user expectations rising, it's critical to measure performance from the end perspective of the users regularly. This entails being able to see your end-users in real-time, what devices they are using, what applications they are using, etc

  5. Network Access Control: It is critical to have a secure method for registering and securing devices that you do not own, whether you call it mobile device registration or network access control. They can enable your users to register for the network, which is a useful feature that improves the user experience.

  6. Web Content/Application Filtering: To mitigate threats, network security must become more application-aware than ever before. You should have application filtering in place to protect users from potentially malicious threats and to avoid potential performance issues.

  7. Mobile Device Management: Consider how many mobile devices will be accessing your wireless network; then consider the thousands of applications that will be running on those mobile devices. Mobile device management can give you control over how you manage application and program access. If the device is lost or stolen, you can even remotely wipe it.
