Gateway Controller Clear Flow Core
The Clear Flow Gateway is at its core, a powerful Gigabit network router and firewall.
It has additional functionality when paired with any other Clear Flow network device, allowing autonomous control over a single or groups of equipment.
Group scheduling allows multiple units to receive firmware updates, settings changes etc. automatically ? greatly increasing the reasonable expandability available to Clear Flow-based networks.
Further to this, the Clear Flow gateway allows the user to analyse and control a network.
Managing traffic in many useful ways; based on IP information, MAC address, routing, load balancing, QoS changes, VPN tunnelling, remote management among others.
Antiference Clear Flow range of wireless networking devices offers a fresh approach to creating and expanding WiFi networks.
With a choice of in-wall (WAP) or ceiling mounted (AIR) access points, there is an option for every requirement.
In addition, the BEAM point-to-point bridge extenders allow the extension of a network wirelessly up to a distance of 10KM if required

This model of the Clear Flow Gateway (GWPOE) has the addition of self-adaptive, 48V 802.3af PoE ports which can be used to power any other currently existing Clear flow device.
It can be useful when attempting to keep costs down.
Smaller budgets (with fewer numbers of access points), don?t have to factor in the price of PoE injectors or switches.
Any device which utilises standard PoE can be powered and networked directly through the I/O of the router itself.
Access Points under control of the Gateway have their traffic monitored and appropriately balanced to achieve maximum efficiency.
Having these tasks centrally managed by a device separate to the information delivering access points helps to boost productivity through the network.
All devices registering a Clear Flow MAC address will automatically be detected and listed for management.
Having high-quality access points also aids the efficiency of a managed network.
When considering the specification of a WiFi device, there are three main factors; processing power, transmission power and bandwidth
