C36 | W7x | W6x | Technology | WAP Software
Pakedge wireless access points provide high-range, enterprise-level wireless communication between all devices within a network. Combined with the C36 Wireless Network Controller, the Pakedge portfolio of wireless products allows an entire network with multiple APs to function wirelessly and without interference.
C36 WIRELESS CONTROLLER
A controller serves as the command, coordination, and control center of a wireless network with multiple access points. In a network without a wireless controller, the wireless access points (WAPs) are unaware of each other's presence and act independently of one another - resulting in sub-optimal network performance, coverage gaps, and inconsistent connectivity. More importantly, the WAP settings may not be applied consistently throughout each unit - leading to inconsistent policy application and enforcement, and potential integration of rogue access points and devices.
The C36 Wireless Controller eliminates these problems and works in conjunction with up to 30 W6x and W7x Wireless Access Points. It provides seamless, scalable, and reliable wireless network access by managing each access point and optimizing wireless coverage with a suite of performance enhancing technologies.
Active Wireless Performance Optimizations
SectorMaxx enhances the range of wireless access points.
TruStream enhances the throughput of wireless access points.
SmartWav Actively monitors the RF environment, making periodic intelligent changes to ensure the wireless network is always performing at its peak.
The C36 makes it easy to install and maintain a wireless network. Auto-discovery and automatic update functionality ensures a hands-off approach to wireless network maintenance. After being installed on the network, the C36 gives a single, easy location to manage AP configurations including channel settings, client device management, and wireless scheduling.
Optimize Your Wireless Network
The C36 enables wireless access points to work as a team - giving complete control over power output settings, traffic/bandwidth management, client limits, and security features. A site survey functionality makes it easy for users to find rogue access points and mitigate interference for optimal performance. A suite of automatic network adaptivity features scans for and manages interference and automatically adapts the network in case of failed AP - ensuring truly seamless coverage.
Monitor and Manage Whole-Network Performance
The C36's robust network performance monitoring and management makes it an all-in-one wireless network troubleshooting device. At-a-glance network health pairs with event and error logging and system status reporting to allow quick, easy fixes to network problems. An internal speed-test feature allows users to see how fast their wireless network is running.
The C36's Heat Map feature allows users to upload blueprints to provide an at-a-glance overview of the range and signal strength of W6x and W7x Wireless Access Points. Heat Map functionality allows users to easily scale output power and channel settings to ensure the best possible signal.
The high-powered dual-band W7x access point runs on both the 2.4 and 5 GHz bands, reducing interference compared to access points that operate on the 2.4 GHz band alone.
The 2x2 MIMO setup of the W7 enables 300Mbps throughput - up to 3x the throughput of traditional Wireless-N access points, while its b/g/n standard compliance ensures full compatibility with legacy devices. All W7x devices can be powered by PoE, enabling easy setup without worrying about rewiring or available wall ports.
The Pakedge BakPak® mobile and web app allows a unified, cloud-based approach to network reporting and maintenance. The 7x series of Access Points integrates with the C36 Wireless Controller and Bakpak® Cloud Management software for a complete, cloud-managed wireless networking solution.
W7 Rack Mount
The W6x family of ultra-high-powered access points is designed to provide a versatile, high power 802.11b/g/n wireless solution capable of providing best-in-class wireless coverage in any scenario. Designed with four form factors - desktop/wall-mount, rack-mount, in-ceiling, and outdoor - the W6x series of access points is an ideal way to implement a wireless network.
The W6x provides 4 SSIDs as well as two guest networks, allowing users to separate out latency-sensitive traffic onto its own sub-network for increased speeds. The W6 utilizes Pakedge SectorMaxx™ technology to cure low signal to noise ratio, avoiding interference where it can be avoided, improving signal where it can be improved, and lowering the noise floor where it can be lowered.
SmartWav™ allows the W6 to broadcast constructive signals by synchronizing waveforms - enabling a stronger, more stable radio signal.

3x Coverage with SectorMaxx™
The W6x and W7x utilizes Pakedge SectorMaxx™ technology to cure low signal to noise ratio, avoiding interference where it can be avoided, improving signal where it can be improved, and lowering the noise floor where it can be lowered. A mix of software algorithms and superior hardware, SectorMaxx® technology can result in up to a 3x broadcast range over traditional access points.
Improved Streaming with TruStream™
Trustream technology functions behind the scenes to ensure speed and quality of data across both wired and wireless networks. Focusing on A/V traffic, TruStream eliminates lag, jitter, and buffering in streaming audio and video traffic. TruStream ensures that Pakedge networks provide an uninterrupted media experience even where other wireless network solutions fail. TruStream goes a step beyond conventional approaches by recognizing and categorizing traffic running through the network, and optimizing traffic flow throughout both the wired and wireless networks.
SmartWav™ Antenna Technology
The W7 utilizes Pakedge SmartWav™ technology to proactively learn about the environment around an AP, utilizing the surrounding area to dynamically direct its signal toward client devices and around potential points of interference. With the W7X's 2x2 MIMO technology, SmartWav™ allows the W7 to broadcast constructive signals by synchronizing waveforms - enabling a stronger, more stable radio signal.
The Pakedge BakPak® mobile and web app allows a unified, cloud-based approach to network reporting and maintenance, giving users the ability to power cycle access points, receive configurable alerts directly to their e-mail or smartphone, and an at-a-glance view of AP and Controller health. Pakedge access points integrate with the C36 Wireless Controller and Bakpak® Cloud Management software for a complete, cloud-managed wireless networking solution.
