Trapeze upgrades wireless networking software
Mobile System Software 7.0 is intended to improve the overall reliability of wireless networks
Trapeze Networks has announced the availability of the latest version of its Mobile System Software (MSS) 7.0 will now come complete with virtual controller clustering.
Trapeze has designed this version of MSS in order to meet the specific bandwidth demands of 802.11n and to deliver a fully optimised software platform for apps such as voice over WiFi and seamless indoor/outdoor activity.
According to Trapeze, the virtual controller clustering improves wireless networks and ensures that if an access point or controller fails or gets disconnected the MSS will automatically remap resources until the problem reaches resolution. This feature is said to eliminate the need to purchase and configure hot-standby controllers.
In addition, the software can operate in conjunction with existing resiliency strategies such as automatic re-adjustment of RF power levels and channel assignments to mitigate coverage holes.
Other features of MSS 7.0 includes dynamic load optimisation, which directs users onto less crowded RF bands, and dynamic scaling which allows incident free addition and automatic configuration of newly added controllers and access points.
