The Edimax OAP900 access point has a very complete firmware, a good example of this is that it not only allows it to be configured in AP mode or in WDS Bridge and WPS + AP mode, but it can also work in managed access point mode.
What is this configuration mode? Thanks to Edimax NMS software or to the wireless controller Edimax APC500, we will be able to centrally manage a large number of Edimax access points, in this way, the same configuration can be applied to dozens of computers simultaneously so that the deployment or modification of the deployed configurations will be really fast.
In our analysis that you can see below, we already talked about the possibility of this AP being managed remotely:
In RedesZone we also have a complete analysis of the Edimax APC500, the Wi-Fi controller from the manufacturer Edimax with which we can centrally control dozens of access points of the Edimax Pro family:
We recommend reading its analysis to know all the options and possibilities that the device offers us, such as a RADIUS server with centralized PEAP authentication, AP group management and even the creation of captive portals for wireless clients.
Get to know the firmware of the Edimax OAP900 in Managed AP Mode
In the video that you can see below, we have explained in detail what the Managed AP Mode does, and we also show you the options that we will have available in the firmware. For example, when configuring the OAP900 in this configuration mode, we will not be able to make or modify any configuration to the LAN or Wi-Fi networks, because the AP is prepared to be managed remotely through NMS or a Wi-Fi controller .
What we can do are administration tasks such as changing the administration ports, changing the authentication credentials in the Edimax NMS server for centralized management, changing the local authentication credentials, as well as updating the firmware of the device.
You can see the video from here or also from our YouTube channel:
