Instant virtualizes Mobility Controller capabilities on 802.11802.11 is an evolving family of specifications for wireless LANs developed by a working group of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). 802.11 standards use the Ethernet protocol and Carrier Sense Multiple Access with collision avoidance (CSMA/CA) for path sharing. access points (APs), creating a feature-rich enterprise-grade wireless LANLocal Area Network. A LAN is a network of connected devices within a distinct geographic area such as an office or a commercial establishment and share a common communications line or wireless link to a server. (WLANWireless Local Area Network. WLAN is a 802.11 standards-based LAN that the users access through a wireless connection.) that combines affordability and configuration simplicity.

Instant is a simple, easy to deploy turn-key WLANWireless Local Area Network.

An EthernetEthernet is a network protocol for data transmission over LAN. port with routable connectivity to the Internet or a self-enclosed network is used for deploying an Instant Wireless Network. An Instant Access Point (Instant AP) can be installed at a single site or deployed across multiple geographically-dispersed locations. Designed specifically for easy deployment, and proactive management of networks, Instant is ideal for small customers or remote locations without any on-site IT administrator.

Instant consists of an Instant AP and a Virtual Controller. The Virtual Controller resides within one of the APs. In anInstant deployment scenario, only the first Instant AP needs to be configured. After the first Instant AP is configured, the other Instant APs inherit all the required configuration information from the Virtual Controller. Instant continually monitors the network to determine the Instant AP that should function as the Virtual Controller at any time, and the Virtual Controller will move from one Instant AP to another as necessary without impacting network performance.
