Product Info

Edgecore EWS1000 WLAN gateway-controller is an ideal solution for large hotels, universities, and public venues requiring powerful user access control and Wi-Fi management.


The EWS1000 is an enterprise-grade wireless LAN controller that provides establishments such as hotels, universities, or even complete municipalities with a comprehensive set of managed Wi-Fi features at a competitive license-free price point. With AP management, user authentication, policy assignment, traffic shaping, firewall features, and much more all packaged into a single box, the EWS1000 provides network administrators with a reliable, easy-to-use, and centralized management console for an entire organization’s wireless network infrastructure.

The EWS1000 is capable of managing up to 10,000 ECW-series wireless access points and can be directly integrated with Edgecore unified access switches, all of which can be deployed and configured easily by anyone, including non-wireless savvy users. For example, automated AP discovery prevents network administrators from having to go through the hassle of individually adding and configuring each access point. Access points as well as connected Wi-Fi devices can then be monitored and managed from a centralized point, with extensive logging and reporting features to assist in troubleshooting and maintenance.

For user management, the EWS1000 allows up to 100,000 connected clients. Moreover, as Wi-Fi-enabled handheld devices, such as smartphones and tablets, become ever so prevalent in our daily lives, businesses and network operators alike are faced with a mind-boggling dilemma – how to simultaneously address the needs of BYOD (Bring Your Own Device), manage Wi-Fi users, and maintain network service quality for mission-critical applications. The EWS1000 is designed exactly with these requirements in mind, and with a total cost of ownership that satisfies even the most price conscious, organizations are guaranteed to receive an unmatched ROI on their wireless LAN infrastructure.
