Controller Access Point (controller AP)
When a network administrator assigns one AP as the controller AP and sets others as managed APs, the controller AP is capable of storing and editing the device configurations of the managed APs. The network administrator does not need to configure the managed APs manually one-by-one and can just use the web configurator of the controller AP to configure them.
