WirelessTrakker + Non-Ubiquiti Solution

An amazing, economical wireless-network solution designed for your K–12 school and all your BYOD needs.

Your wireless controller and access-point system may do a lot of things well. But chances are, you’re frustrated by what they can’t do.

Make: K12USA.com
Model: WT1701B

For example, have you noticed that cloud-based wireless controllers usually can’t handle DHCP for VLANs or inter-VLAN routing? (Note: If you use Ubiquiti UniFi APs, click here.)

Truth is, most don’t have the features needed to be a complete multi-SSID solution. That limits your options and flexibility in today’s complex BYOD world.

And that’s exactly why we developed WirelessTrakker.

When connected to your access points (must be purchased separately), our powerful, easy-to-use wireless-network support* is comparable to big-name brands like Cisco Meraki, Ruckus Wireless, and Aruba Networks.

It has all the brawn you need at a fraction of the price. And unlike with many of our competitors, you won’t get slammed with upgrade costs, hidden charges, or recurring licensing fees.

Here are some of the key features you’ll enjoy:

Key Features

DHCP (Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol) for Each VLAN

The DHCP server hands out custom IP addresses for every SSID, so you can allot different content-filtering parameters to each SSID. This saves you the hassle of having to assign individual IP addresses to every user.

For example:

  • IP addresses given to students on SSID #1 can be filtered one way
  • IP addresses belonging to staff on SSID #2 can be filtered another

Inter-VLAN Routing

Allows traffic on one SSID to travel to other SSIDs, the Internet, and different areas of your local area network. In other words, it can serve as your core router.

Multicast DNS (Domain Name System)

Permits communication between network-connected devices, applications, and services, no matter which SSID the user is on.

RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service)

An alternative to filtering through SSIDs. Users enter a username and password to authenticate their status (student, teacher, etc.) and are filtered accordingly.

VLAN Firewall*

Blocks guests and other “outsiders” from accessing your school’s local servers when they log on to your wireless network. It’s a secure way to keep your resources off limits to unauthorized users.

Free with your WirelessTrakker subscription:

  • Software and equipment upgrades and replacements (applies to K12USA equipment, not access points)
  • Automatic configuration backup and updates
  • Unlimited tech support

Looking to transform your current setup into a complete wireless-networking solution? Be sure to refer to our downloadable checklist while comparing options.

Note: If you don’t yet have a system in place, we highly recommend the Ubiquiti line—it pairs seamlessly with WirelessTrakker.

Services & Warranties

WirelessTrakker Wireless Controller Appliance

  • Your compact, easy-to-mount 1U wireless controller appliance comes preconfigured for simple DIY installation in a server room or wiring closet (compatible rack and patch cables are also included)
  • We warranty, maintain, upgrade, and replace (if necessary) all K12USA equipment and software, at our expense
  • When your subscription ends, just return the appliance to us (we pay the ground shipping in the continental U.S.)

Access Points

Requirements

WirelessTrakker is easy to set up and deploy on your own, but we’re here to help if you have questions (877-225-0100 or support@K12USA.com).

  • The only network requirement is that the switches between your WirelessTrakker controller and access points support VLANs and VLAN tagging (known as 802.1Q)
    • Most managed switches support and place the ports in the correct VLANs
    • We can help with this process and have instructions for many different vendors and switches
  • If you want to authenticate your wireless users with active directory, you must have a Microsoft Windows Domain Controller running Windows 2000 or newer

Integration With SecureSchool Internet Filter

If you have SecureSchool—or are in the market for this excellent content filter/firewall//cache server—you can skip the WirelessTrakker appliance altogether and opt for WirelessTrakker Universal Wireless Support add-on.

It has all the functionality of the device but is conveniently integrated into the SecureSchool system. You get the capabilities of both tools in one appliance—at a lower price.
