The cnPilot Wi-Fi Network
Controller Managed + Autonomous
Managed by Cambium’s cnMaestro cloud controller or On-premises controller, the cnPilot E400 management includes:
- Zero touch onboarding
- Inventory tracking
- Mass Configuration
- Dashboard views with Alarms
- Mass upgrade
- Hierarchical device organization
Controller-Less Roaming. Powerful SImplicity
The E400 supports seamless roaming for up to 1,000 clients without needing a controller in the network! Hotspot portal hosting on the AP itself offers controller-less simplicity.
Monetize: Vouchers. Social Login
Monetize your Wi-Fi service: cnMaestro’s Guest access feature supports splash page hosting, social login and payment gateway. All built-in power packed features available right on the controller! These features along with the ability to create time, rate and volume limited traffic profiles along with vouchers for temporary guest access makes the E400 ideal for Hotels, Coffee shops, Campgrounds, and Office guest Wi-Fi.
Service Aware WLANs. Better User Experience.
Nothing is more frustrating than connecting to an Access point, but not getting to the Internet! When connection to a critical resource such as an external Gateway or AAA is down, the E400 can turn off the impacted SSIDs enabling client devices to select a different working neighboring Access point.
Indoor/Outdoor Wi-Fi Mesh. Flexibility.
Indoor meshing across multiple E400s or Indoor/Outdoor meshing across the Indoor E400 and the Outdoor E500 offers a convenient way to easily expand Wi-Fi coverage without wires.
Coverage, Capacity. Speed.
The plenum rated E400, packs a max transmit power of 25 dBm, and is DFS certified to make use of additional reserved 5GHz DFS channels, offering more flexibility than ever for both coverage and capacity. Throughput management via Airtime fairness, increased performance by Automatic channel scanning (ACS), and higher client device speeds from Band steering ensure your network can adapt to the dynamics of ever changing client behaviors.
High Density, Highly Available
A capacity of 256 max concurrent client associations, and 16 SSIDs, along with dual on-board Active/Standby memory banks ensure the E400 combines high density with high availability.
License Free High Performance. One Low Price.
All cnPilot E-series APs come with a free controller, and no AP management license fees. No hidden charges. Affordable.
Adaptive Wi-Fi Architecture:
A variety of access architectures have evolved over two decades of increasing Wi-Fi use within organizations. Some have been driven by product limitations; others have been created to meet security or regulatory requirements.
Among the many questions that arise during network design, administrators need to address the following:
- Management - Will the operation benefit more from a cloud-based or on-premises management system?
- Traffic separation - Are the organization’s requirements best served by local breakout of Wi-Fi traffic, or the extra separation of traffic made possible by tunneling user data to a controller?
Many vendors’ solutions lock administrators in to a particular deployment model or network traffic distribution system, but Cambium Networks believes that Wi-Fi network design should conform to the organization’s needs, not the other way around.
Cambium Networks cnPilot’s Adaptive Wi-Fi architecture enables Wi-Fi integration with existing wired network infrastructure and the cnMaestro™ management system provides scalable, flexible management in addition to Wi-Fi controller features.
The Key Architectural Choices Are:
- Where does your user data traffic go? The Wi-Fi AP can bridge it onto Ethernet (also known as local break out). Another option is to tunnel it over an IP-based protocol to a tunnel terminator, which can be a wireless controller or a different third party concentrator.
- Where does your Wi-Fi controller and management system run? Some organizations prefer the convenience of a vendor operated cloud-based management system. Others prefer in-house operation - usually with controllers that can manage tens of thousands of access points. For very small deployments, it can make most sense to configure an AP to perform the duties of a controller.
Regardless of your requirements, cnPilot and cnMaestro offer customizable options for a complete Wi-Fi solution that meets your needs.
Zero-touch deployment and Cloud-based management lets you easily deploy and control even large networks without requiring an IT team. Cambium operates cnMaestro™ in the cloud, scaling easily to thousands of devices - at no cost to you. The Cambium cloud is a highly redundant system with servers across the globe to ensure high uptime, with a secure HTTPS channel dedicated to communication between Wi-Fi APs and the cloud. cnMaestro™ advanced controller features include scalable guest access and remote login, allowing you to access your management console from anywhere in the world without having to VPN into your organization’s internal network.
Organizations may choose on-premises management for a variety of reasons. Regulatory or security requirements, or simply preference for in-house management solutions may limit cloud-based control capability. cnMaestro on-premises management is perfect for such organizations, providing the same set of features as cnMaestro cloud management in a virtual appliance package.
cnMaestro on-premises can also terminate data traffic tunneled from cnPilot APs over a tunnel and bridge it out over an isolated VLAN. This is useful if, for instance, you never want to bridge guest traffic at the edge of your internal network.
For very small deployments that will not use cloud-based management, cnMaestro on-premises may be impractical for just a few APs. In that case, cnPilot Autopilot lets you designate and configure a master AP to perform double duty as a wireless controller for up to 32 other APs in addition to providing normal Wi-Fi service. All monitoring and configuration can be done from the master AP’s UI.
cnPilot and cnMaestro solutions from Cambium Networks make it easy for network administrators to design reliable, efficient connectivity solutions that scale and migrate easily to other architectures according to demand.
