What is an AP Controller?

Peplink’s AP Controller, a software-based AP management tool built into all Peplink Balance and selected Pepwave MAX routers, lets you manage your entire wireless network from your router and easily build a custom captive portal for your business. Peplink’s AP Controller works seamlessly with the AP One and AP Pro, providing advanced, enterprise AP management that’s plug-and-play easy. Setup is fast and access points are detected automatically, giving you immediate control over configuration, usage, and much more. You also get in-depth reporting that’s available 24/7 on all your devices, so you’re always up-to-date.

Clear, Comprehensive Reports

With the Peplink AP Controller’s array of included reports, detailed Wi-Fi network statistics are just a click away. Whether you’re working directly from your Balance router or on a tablet or smartphone halfway around the world, you get instant access to client statistics and data usage, broken down by access point, signal frequency, and time interval. The AP Controller also includes a client event log that gives you at-a-glance insight into user behavior, as well as alerts to events that require further investigation, such as suspected rogue access points.

Custom Captive Portals

Got a busy hotel, campus, or restaurant? Give visitors a customized, branded Internet experience with captive portals. Simply modify the AP Controller’s built-in captive portal with your logo, terms and conditions, and other information. You can easily control connection time and speed, data usage limits, and more.
