The WEC8500 is suitable for environments where both data throughput and voice calls are simultaneously required. The Self Organizing Network (SON) feature that is integrated into the WEC8500 applies mobile telecommunications technology to existing auto cell optimization technology. This automatically adjusts the access point’s Tx power, changing the channel to suit the circumstances of whether data or voice services are needed.

This controller applied the next-generation Long Terms Evolution (LTE) handover technology for overcoming weaknesses of WiFi handover scheme. AirMove technology lets WEC8500 determine optimal timing and target AP for WiFi devices which need to handover. With this innovative handover technology, constant Wi-Fi service is available for users making voice calls or playing videos. Also, the WEC8500 guarantees greater throughput that is more than double that of general Wi-Fi handover capabilities.

Highly scalable and Powerful platform

The WEC8500 comprises of innovative architecture that guarantees speedy network connection and minimal downtime. The controller has two 10G and eight 1G ports for network Interface which are optimized to ensure that users benefit from reliable and scalable WLAN access. Such powerful platform makes the WEC8500 ideally suited to use in mission-critical all wireless envoronment.


Samsung AirEqualizer optimises wireless resources by applying traffic schedule technology to the AP and allocates equal airtime to multiple devices. When numerous devices concurrently connect to an AP, AirEqualizer guarantees best performance by analysing individual connection requirements, typically delivering a gain of 50 or more compared to competitors.
