types of network discovery




Query switches and routers



Types of Network Discovery
  • Discover network devices by listening on layer 2 and layer 3 and applies the relevant profile automatically:
        • Cisco CDP packets and CDP Neighbor Tables
        • WNMP packets (Symbol)
        • IAPP packets (Proxim, HP, Dell, Avaya, SYSTIMAX)
        • SNMP layer 3 (All IP address reachable devices)

Auto-Discovery Wizard

The Auto-Discovery Wizard provides you with a single point of configuration for all discovery features.

layer 3 network search
Layer 3 Network Search

The Network Search Settings dialog box is designed to set up IP address ranges you want to search for equipment you want to manage.

manual ap configuration2
Manual AP Configuration

You can configure basic settings for an AP through the options in each configuration category for that AP.

Note: The Settings have only properties available for that hardware type and firmware version.

automating ap configuration
Automating AP Configuration
  • Mobile Manager has two (2) methods of automated configuration
    • Importing site survey/WLAN planning data
    • AP Configuration Profiles
ap configuration loading site survey data
AP Configuration – Loading Site Survey Data

By importing a simple CSV file, Mobile Manager can apply AP settings across your network as new wireless equipment is installed on the LAN.

ap configuration profiles
AP Configuration Profiles

You can design two types of Profiles:

Default: One per hardware type. Applied to any unprofiled AP of that type

Production: As many as needed per hardware type and must have each AP or group of APs manually added

Once you create a profile, Mobile Manager acts as a watchdog, preventing any outside changes to your wireless network.

wep key rotation overview
WEP Key Rotation Overview

Each time one rotation interval passes, the management software will change one of the four device keys in succession and also establish a new index key for transmitting.

By changing only one of the four keys at a time, communication between the mobile device and access point can continue uninterrupted by the underlying key rotation.

By ensuring that the access points and mobile devices are using different index keys, Wavelink further mitigates the risk of a security breach.
