Working in unison with HP MSM access points, the HP MSM Controller Series delivers high-performance networking solutions. The enhanced architecture scales to 802.11n without requiring controller replacement. Robust identity- and roles-based user account profiles, as well as Virtual Service Communities (VSCs) with independently configurable Quality of Service (QoS), authentication, encryption, and VLAN support, deliver intelligence to the network edge. Scalable from small to larger deployments, the MSM wireless controllers support a fast-roaming capability. Wireless security is comprehensive with support for internal and external authentication, authorization, and accounting (AAA) servers, built-in stateful firewall, per-user VLAN mapping, and authentication.
