Virtualizing the Wireless Network

ADTRAN's next-generation vWLAN architecture brings all the benefits of virtualization to the wireless network. vWLAN unifies wireless and existing wired networks to produce a truly integrated and optimized networking solution. vWLAN enables customers to dramatically reduce the cost of deploying and operating large-scale Wi-Fi networks while providing wired-equivalent performance to wireless users, with seamless roaming and enterprise-class security and policy management.

Simplified Scalability
vWLAN architecture was designed around a concept of simplified scalability and flexibility. In the era of wireless advancements including 802.11n, voice, and larger wireless networks; maintainability and Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) are at the forefront of new network designs. vWLAN removes the complexities and limitations of dealing with controller capacity by centralizing the management and control functions. Further advantages are gained with security and mobility distributed at the edge of the network, the logical placement in networks that are designed for scalability and high availability. Adding additional access points to the vWLAN system is as easy as installing an ADTRAN software license, which extends coverage to thousands of APs without needing to worry about controller capacity or adding additional hardware.

Unprecedented Wireless Security
The Bluesocket vWLAN solution was designed from the beginning with security in mind from both the client side and network side of the system. The Bluesocket APs control the data plane and include a built-in stateful firewall that enforces security policies at the edge to turn away malicious traffic before it hits the LAN. In addition, with Wireless Intrusion Detection System (W-IDS) as a standard feature, comprehensive user authentication options, support for multiple encryption protocols, combined with role-based authentication, Bluesocket vWLAN ensures a secure wireless environment.

Optimized Performance
With vWLAN, 802.11n system capacity is no longer computed by the backplane capacity of the hardwarebased controller; rather, it's determined by the aggregate throughput of the APs. This is a revolutionary change from traditional, centralized wireless LAN solutions. The vWLAN distributed architecture enables a tenfold increase in total capacity. Because the packet forwarding functionality is offloaded from the controller to the access point, the controller is free to now manage thousands of AP's and tens of thousands of users.

Businesses of all Sizes
vWLAN provides a flexible solution that can operate in multiple deployments from a branch office to a large campus environment while offering a lower cost of ownership and optimal performance. Remote offices deployments are demanding more from wireless LAN solutions and vWLAN responds by integrating flexibility into the security and data forwarding modules. Wireless LAN systems, especially in large campus environments, are expected to provide minimal downtime as they support a significant number of users and critical applications. vWLAN addresses this requirement by providing a seamless, high availability solution that is transparent to the wireless users (with zero packet loss) while also providing flexible deployment options. Virtualization By virtualizing the centralized management and control function and making it available on a hypervisor, like VMware, ADTRAN removes 100 percent of the controller hardware, vastly reducing capital costs and TCO. This in conjunction with the other benefits that virtualization provides like, speedy deployments, infinite scale and virtual consolidation across the organization, makes vWLAN on VMware the most powerful and complete choice for an efficient, secure, high performing and cost-effective wireless LAN solution.

Virtualizing the Wireless Network Deployment

vWLAN Benefits

  • Eliminates the cost and constraints of a physical controller: Eliminating the physical controller triggers a number of advantages not the least of which is cost. Both the initial CAPEX and the ongoing OPEX associated with the controller are gone.
  • Enforces network security at the edge: vWLAN takes advantage of intelligent access points and enforces security policies at the edge. A full stateful firewall is configured and managed centrally but the policy is enforced at the access point.
  • Provides seamless, cost-effective scaling: vWLAN separates the control and data plane. This allows for separate scaling and greater capacity. Adding more access points (data plane) does not drive an increase in the control plane. Likewise, adding more locations or more users does not require an additional investment in the control plane.
  • Optimizes Performance: With vWLAN, system capacity is no longer determined by the backplane capacity of the controller; rather, capacity is a function of the aggregate throughput of the APs.
  • Flexibility: Virtualization permits a single application to run independent of the underlying server infrastructure. A vWLAN control instance in one city can control access points anywhere in the world.
  • Reliability: vWLAN can be configured in a high availability arrangement such that a failover can take place with zero packet loss. Reliability is based on the dependency of the data center as opposed to a single purpose controller.
