Autonomous Wave Control

Address the complex and rapidly-evolving environment of the IoT world, by reducing the need for costly human involvement in the deployment and tuning of a wireless network.

The Allied Telesis Autonomous Wave Control (AWC) wireless controller uses intelligence to deliver a better wireless experience with lower deployment and operating costs.

Built on AI (Artificial Intelligence), the AWC technology analyzes radio coverage and interference to deliver better wireless connectivity that automatically adapts to environmental changes and users' dynamic bandwidth demands.

A Better Way of Building Wireless Networks for IoT

The Internet of Things (IoT) and Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) movements have created an exponential increase in the number of connected devices, all of which demand reliable and high-speed wireless network access. This unprecedented rise in the number of connections and the associated traffic puts a major strain on networks, many of which struggle to deliver the coverage, performance, and reliable roaming access that today’s users demand.

The AWC Wireless Controller helps to address this complex and rapidly-evolving environment, by reducing the need for costly human involvement in the deployment and ongoing tuning of a wireless network.

Employing artificial intelligence techniques, with real-time analytics of user connectivity, behavior and data flows, generates a marked increase in network coverage and performance when compared to legacy wireless networking.

Reducing the Cost of Wireless Deployments

Wireless network site surveys can be expensive, and the cost increases with the size of a facility and the types of applications that need to work on the wireless LAN. Organizations that want to keep these skills in-house are often required to buy expensive wireless LAN site survey test equipment, and train their IT staff on how to correctly design, deploy and test a wireless network

The AWC Wireless Controller helps organizations avoid the time and expense associated with manual site surveys, and reduces the dependence on trained personnel.

Optimizing Wireless Performance

Wireless connectivity and performance issues are among the most frustrating productivity issues for IT managers and employees alike. While drops in connectivity and poor overall wireless performance are inconvenient, a sudden or persistent lack of connectivity for business-critical users can be damaging. Instances of this damage could include lost production on the factory floor, and can even be life threatening, as in the case of a hospital.

The key to always-on, optimized wireless performance is to continually monitor and adjust each wireless access point (AP) so that coverage is maintained and co-channel interference kept to a minimum. The AWC technology ensures that each wireless AP is operating on the optimal channel and at the optimum power, so that maximum coverage and bandwidth availability is obtained across the whole network.

Benefits of AWC auto-tuning network optimization:

  • Automatically analyzes multi-channel Wi-Fi networks
  • Autonomously optimizes wireless performance
  • Responds to user bandwidth demands
  • Provides a superior Wi-Fi user experience
  • Reduces deployment time and cost


Wireless Network Management

The AWC Wireless Controller is closely integrated with the Allied Telesis Autonomous Management Framework™ (AMF), a powerful automation tool that provides a simplified approach to network management. With features like centralized management, auto-backup, auto-upgrade, auto-provisioning and recovery, AMF delivers significant cost and time savings from plug-and-play networking and zero-touch management for the wired and wireless network.

There are three ways to deploy the AWC Wireless Controller to enjoy the benefits of auto-optimization:

  1. The AWC plugin for Allied Telesis Vista Manager EX™. Vista Manager EX is a state-of-the-art monitoring and management tool for AMF networks that includes various visualization modes so IT administrators can easily monitor their networks, with Access Point profiles to simplify the management of multiple APs.
  2. AWC-Lite is an integrated solution enabling visual wireless management from the Vista Manager Mini GUI running on SwitchBlade Gen2 and x950 Series switches, UTM Firewalls, and secure VPN Routers – ideal for branch offices and SMEs.
  3. Let us run AWC for you with a Hosted Service. We provide the hosting platform and are responsible for ensuring continuity of service so that your staff and customers enjoy non-stop Wi-Fi. This enables you to focus on your business and frees your IT team to focus on revenue-generating projects.

The AWC Wireless Controller from Allied Telesis gives IT managers another tool to build high-performance, optimized networks for the IoT age. With fewer site surveys, easily deployable and affordable infrastructure, intelligent network management and visualization tools, the AWC Wireless Controller offers a cutting-edge wireless experience.
