Both controllers offer a cost-effective network solution for businesses, with features such as L3 routing, firewalls, 10G interfaces as well as system redundancy to enhance security and minimise downtime.

With integrated handover and automatic cell optimisation utilising applied LTE technology, the controllers provide optimal wireless connections for notebook PCs, tablets and smartphones. The WEC8500 is able to simultaneously manage up to 500 access points and 10,000 devices, while the smaller WEC8050 can manage up to 75 access points and 1500 devices.
