Wave 1 Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers
Wireless Network Controllers Configuration and Support ConsultingCisco wireless controllers cut the time and expense required to deploy, monitor, and troubleshoot Wi-Fi networks by centralizing control of functions like provisioning access points, enforcing consistent policies across converged wired/wireless networks, supporting enterprise-wide Quality of Service (QoS) for voice and HD video, monitoring and troubleshooting network performance, implementing security capabilities to defend against cyber break-ins and DDoS threats, and handling IPv6 clients. Cisco has developed wireless network controllers for organizations of any size and offers standalone desktop appliances, modular add-on controllers for Cisco routers and switches, and switches with integrated wireless LAN controllers.

Cisco Wireless Network Controller Module Configuration and Support ConsultingCisco's Wave 1 WiFi LAN controllers include Cisco CleanAir tools to minimize signal interference and create self-healing and self-optimizing wireless networks for top 802.11n and 802.11ac performance and security. Integrated Apple Bonjour Gateways permit discovery throughout WLAN, LAN and WAN for Apple-based applications. For high availability (HA), Cisco wireless network controllers allow AP and client stateful switchover by enabling a standby HA controller to synch with a main wireless controller for access point license count, CAPWAP keys, and access point CAPWAP state. In case the main controller stops working, thousands of access points and clients can failover at subsecond speeds to the secondary wireless network controller.

Cisco's Wireless Controller Module for ISR Routers with UCS-E offers basic 802.11n and 802.11ac support for 2900 and 3900 routers deployed by small to medium-sized businesses and satellite offices.
