Managed WLAN: The FairPoint Advantage

FairPoint Communications’ Managed Wireless LAN (WLAN) Service offers a robust, secure, and cost-effective solution that extends an organization’s LAN without the additional cost of wiring or the complexity of additional management. It provides high availability, performance, efficiency, and monitoring capabilities via a customer portal, while offloading the day-to-day management of the wireless LAN to FairPoint. 

FairPoint’s Managed WLAN solution comprises:

Wireless Endpoints 

Wireless endpoints, deployed at the customer premises, are compatible with 802.11n, as well as 802.11ac, which will support Gbps+ speeds. These dual-band access points support the 802.3af/at Power over Ethernet (PoE) standard and can be deployed internally and externally. In addition to support for strong end-user authentication, the endpoints provide stateful firewalls to ensure the integrity and security of the network.

Server-Based Virtual Controller

FairPoint’s Managed WLAN service leverages a server-based virtual controller that optimizes the performance of the wireless LAN. Through a separation of the control and data planes, this solution automatically balances loads among different endpoints, while ensuring automatic failover if an endpoint becomes disabled.
