  Ask a Question


Apollo AWG-5000 is a medium-size Unified Controller by AADONA to manage and monitor wireless network and users. It is based on CAPWAP protocol and supports multi-ISP access, Link Load Balancing, Ethernet backup, Ethernet superimpose. AWG-5000 supports policy routing, VPN and DHCP. It provides smart flow control, varied user management functions, and multiple authentication options.

AWG-5000 Unified controller is best suited to provide highly efficient and reliable network connectivity for hotels, small enterprises, Internet bars, and shopping malls. It can manage and monitor wireless access points in centralized and distributed deployment modes. Administrator can manage/monitor client traffic in centralized/gateway mode. AWG-5000 provides an intuitive dashboard to monitor controller statistics and user traffic.

AWG-5000 provides a reliable wireless coverage solution that is cost-efficient and convenient.


Multiple WAN ports and routing functions

AWG-5000 supports multiple Gigabit WAN ports with PPPoE/DHCP/Static IP configuration each of them. It supports multiple ISP connections with load balancing option. In centralized deployment mode it supports 128 concurrent users. AWG-5000 supports Ethernet Superimpose, multiple ISP network connections to avoid bandwidth overloading and Ethernet backup/fail-over to recover the dropped WAN link to ensure a smooth running network. AWG-5000 supports policy-based routing function where administrators can configure the network based on IP/MAC/Domain/Interface policies.

Smart QoS

AWG-5000 supports smart QoS based on ports, individual users, user groups and user applications. It allows bandwidth control and dispatch by tunnel or by application. AWG-5000 provides a variety of functions including multiple queuing mechanisms (priority queuing, low latency queuing, custom queuing, weighted queuing), congestion avoidance, traffic policing, traffic shaping and priority marking, ensuring different service for different users and applications.

Varied security mechanisms

AWG-5000 supports a variety of security mechanism, like TCP/UDP/ICMP Flooding, IP/MAC/URL/Web filtering, Ping of Death and other related threats. It also extends protection to every port of the controller and enable the ports to provide DoS/DDoS attack protection, traffic monitoring, Uniform Resource Locator (URL) filtering, and application layer filtering. It also supports user management and password protection. Users of different levels can be assigned with different configuration authorities. Administrator can create blacklist and whitelist per SSID basis. Administrator can redirect URL/domain to the desired destination. AWG-5000 supports IP-MAC binding for secure access and can allow only MAC-bound terminals to access the internet.

Multiple authentication options

AWG-5000 supports web page authentication, PPPoE authentication, IP and MAC authentication. Web page authentication includes social media authentication and one-time password authentication. Users can configure captive portal as per their requirement and can also display advertisements on client devices for monetary purposes. Administrator can configure few special IP addresses as free authentication IP addresses, which can bypass the authentication process and access the internet. AWG-5000 also works as a PPPoE server, administrator can create PPPoE account, password, bandwidth and valid time, to realize PPPoE billing function.

Remote Maintenance and Auto firmware upgrade

Administrator can access into AWG-5000 management interface page remotely from any location, to manage and maintain the wireless access points and WLAN network efficiently and conveniently. AWG-5000 can automatically upgrade to the new released firmware version and easily recover the system through importing and exporting configuration files. It also supports a scheduled reboot or power off which can be configured as a timely regular task of a one-time temporary task.

Access points management

Access points receive IP address from built-in DHCP Server which can assign the IP address for wireless AP automatically when AP is connected to AWG-5000 controller in same network. Administrator can assign a different IP pool in controller DHCP server for access points. AWG-5000 auto-detects the wireless AP and supports configuration of single AP or an AP cluster. AWG-5000 can centrally manage SSID password, mode, channel, RF power, coverage threshold and can reboot, reset or upgrade firmware remotely for efficient maintenance.

Network features

AWG-5000 supports VPN dial up, DNS Proxy, IP address translation and user behavior management.
