Cisco Wave 2 802.11ac WiFi Network Controllers
Cisco Wave 2 wireless controllers enable fast data exchange, deployment, management, monitoring and troubleshooting for Cisco wireless appliances and software services. Cisco has developed both hardware and software-based wireless controllers for unified management of WiFi networks, but networks with a large number of Wi-Fi access points are better served by physical Wi-Fi controllers. Current generation wireless controller devices from Cisco deliver significant advantages over Wave 1 and earlier products such as greater throughput, simultaneous support for 1G and 10G interfaces, improved application visibility and control (AVC), and hardened, integrated security.

Cisco 3504 Wi-Fi Controller Integration ConsultantsThe Cisco 3504 Wireless Controller is an entry-level device with a desktop body and designed for smaller organizations. You can install the 3504 in a centralized WLAN architecture such as in lean branch and remote offices managed over the WAN via Cisco FlexConnect, or in bridge installations where wiring is limited. The 3504 wireless controller can handle as many as 150 wireless APs and 3,000 client users, delivers 4 Gbps performance, and supports 4,096 VLANs. The 3504 WiFi controller features a Cisco Multigigabit interface and four 1-GB Ethernet interfaces. APs can be connected directly to the WiFi controller via two Power over Ethernet ports. The 3504 wireless controller features subsecond failover for access points and users, which provides uninterrupted availability for apps. As with other Wave 2 wireless controllers from Cisco, the 3504 device has the integrated capability to communicate with Cisco Prime Infrastructure, Cisco Mobility Services, and Cisco 5520 and 8540 wireless controllers.

Cisco 5520 Wi-Fi Controller Configuration ConsultantsCisco's 5520 Wireless Controller, available in a 1 rack unit enclosure, is designed to support larger enterprises and campus networks and can be run in centralized, distributed, and mesh architectures. The 5520 Wi-Fi controller can handle up to 1,500 access points and 20,000 users, offers 20 Gbps throughput, and supports up to 4,096 VLANs. The 5520 WiFi controller includes two 10 GE ports and incorporates SSD storage, backup fans, optional dual power supplies, and rapid failover for high availability.

Cisco 8540 Wi-Fi Controller Configuration ConsultantsCisco's 8540 Wireless Controller, available in a 2 rack unit (RU) enclosure, is a top-of-the-line wireless controller designed to support large enterprises, service providers, and large campus environments.

The 8540 Wireless controller can deliver throughput up to 40 Gbps and supports up to 4,096 VLANs. The 8340 comes with four 1-GB or 10GE interfaces and features SSD storage, backup power supplies, redundant fans, and subsecond failover.

Wave 1 Cisco WiFi LAN Controllers
Wireless Network Controllers Consulting ServicesCisco wireless LAN controllers cut the time and cost required to deploy, monitor, and troubleshoot Wi-Fi networks by offering single-point control of critical tasks such as setting up APs, applying single-point policies throughout converged wired/wireless LANs, supporting enterprise-wide Quality of Service for voice and video, tracking and troubleshooting system health, activating intrusion prevention capabilities to guard against cyber break-ins and Distributed Denial of Service threats, and handling IPv6 and dual-stack clients. Cisco has designed wireless network controllers for organizations of all sizes and can provide desktop or rackmount controllers, modular add-on wireless controllers for Cisco routers and Catalyst switches, and Catalyst switches with built-in wireless LAN controllers.

Cisco Wireless LAN Controller Module Online Consulting ServicesCisco's Wave 1 wireless 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 throughput and security. Built-in Bonjour Gateways allow discovery, advertisement and policy across the enterprise for Apple-based applications. For high availability, Cisco wireless network controllers allow wireless access point and client stateful failover by permitting a backup high-availability controller to synchronize with a main controller for access point license count, CAPWAP state and roaming keys, and AP CAPWAP state. If the main controller fails, thousands of access points and wireless clients can failover in less than a second to the backup wireless controller.

Cisco's Wireless Module for ISR G2 Routers with UCS-E offers entry-level 802.11n and 802.11ac capability for 2900 and 3900 routers deployed by smaller businesses and satellite offices. This affordable and expandable solution can support from five to 200 access points and up to 6000 clients. (To find out concerning Progent's online and onsite consulting support services for Cisco routers, see Cisco router configuration and troubleshooting consulting.)
