Better wireless experience
Central administration simplifies planning immensely. The managed access points are first installed at the most suitable locations for WLAN reception. Areas with insufficient coverage or too low data speeds can be made accessible with additional managed access points. The best results can be obtained however when a site survey is carried out enabling a simplified installation and better wireless experience.
A captive portal intercepts all network traffic regardless of address or port until users authenticate their identity through a designated login web page. As an added security measure, the NXC contains captive portal functionality; this means that all web page requests can be initially redirected to a special web page that requires guests to authenticate their sessions.
