Network Services, Routing and Switches

The WiNG OS integrates network services like built-in DHCP server, AAA server and routing protocols like policy based routing and OSPF, Layer 2 protocols like MSTP and Link Aggregation. Integration of services and routing/ switching protocols eliminates the need for additional servers or other networking gear in small offices thereby reducing Total Cost of Ownership (TOC). In large networks, where such services are deployed on a dedicated server/ router at the NOC, this provides a backup solution for remote sites when the WAN link to the NOC is temporarily lost. Integrating also provides the added benefit of coordination across these services on failover from primary to standby, assisting a more meaningful behavior, rather than when each fails over independently of the other for the same root cause.
