One of the most affordable and scalable high-end Smart WLAN controller in its class

The ZoneDirector 5000 (ZD5000) is one of the industry's first controller-based system that can be flexibly deployed either in-line, or out of the data path, supporting up to 20,000 clients, 1,000 access points (APs) and 2048 wireless LANs (WLANs) within a single, easy-to-use platform. If you don't believe us, compare it for yourself against the alternatives.

With 6x the processing power and twice the capacity and redundancy of previous ZoneDirectors, the ZD5000 is perfect for large-scale wireless environments such as hotels, schools, hospitals and managed service environments. With a lifetime warranty, the ZD5000 is one of the first Smart WLAN platform to combine power, simplicity and scalability into a single, affordable system.

Highly resilient with dual/hot-swappable AC/DC power supplies and fans, the ZD5000 integrates the same ZoneFlex Smart/OS software as other ZoneDirector platforms, supporting advanced features such as meshing, hot spot authentication, guest networking and dynamic Wi-Fi security at no additional cost.

Unrivaled Scalability

  • Supports up to 1,000 APs, 20,000 clients, 2048 WLANs per device
  • Distributed forwarding architecture maximizes data throughput by eliminating the need to send all traffic through the controller
  • 512 APs groups, 2048 WLAN groupings

Highly Resilient

  • Automatic smart redundancy for high availability
  • Dual, hot-swappable AC or DC power supplies
  • Redundant fans
  • Centralized or distributed deployment
  • Two 1 Gbps ports for full redundancy
