Cisco Wi-Fi controllers (also called wireless LAN or WLAN controllers) allow realtime communication, provisioning, control, management, and troubleshooting for all Cisco wireless devices and services, including Wave 2 Aironet Wi-Fi access points. Cisco offers both hardware and software-based Wi-Fi controllers for centralized management of wireless networks, but environments with a large number of Wi-Fi access points are better served by physical Wi-Fi controller appliances. Current generation Wi-Fi controller appliances from Cisco deliver major advantages over earlier models including greater throughput, simultaneous support for both 1G and 10G interfaces, enhanced application visibility and control (AVC), and hardened, built-in security.

Progent's certified Wi-Fi consultants can help you assess the business value of deploying Cisco Wi-Fi controllers to manage wireless networks of any size. Progent can help you maintain and troubleshoot your current Cisco-based Wi-Fi solution or help you plan and implement an efficient migration from earlier generation Wi-Fi controllers to current solutions to deliver improved performance and security and to streamline management.

Earlier Generation Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers
Wireless Network Controllers Configuration and Support ConsultingCisco wireless network controllers reduce the effort and expense needed to deploy, manage, and troubleshoot Wi-Fi networks by offering single-point control of critical functions like setting up APs, enforcing consistent policies throughout converged wired/wireless networks, supporting enterprise-wide Quality of Service for voice and video, monitoring and troubleshooting system health, implementing wireless intrusion prevention system (wIPS) tools to guard against unauthorized access and Denial of Service threats, and managing IPv6 clients. Cisco has designed wireless network controllers for businesses of any size and offers standalone desktop appliances, modular add-on wireless controllers for Cisco routers and switches, and switches with integrated wireless LAN controllers.

Cisco Wireless LAN Controller Module Online Consulting ServicesThe latest versions of Cisco wireless controllers incorporate Cisco CleanAir technology to avoid signal interference and produce self-optimizing wireless LANs for maximum 802.11n and 802.11ac performance and security. Integrated Apple Bonjour Gateways enable discovery, advertisement and policy across the enterprise for Apple applications. For high availability (HA), Cisco wireless controllers support AP and client stateful failover by enabling a backup HA controller to synchronize with a main controller for AP license count, CAPWAP state and roaming keys, and AP CAPWAP state. If the primary controller fails, thousands of APs and clients can failover immediately to the secondary controller.

Cisco's Wireless Module for ISR G2 Routers with UCS-E provides basic 802.11n and 802.11ac capability for 2900 and 3900 routers used by smaller businesses and branches. This affordable and expandable module can handle up to 200 access points and up to 6000 wireless clients. (To find out concerning Progent's remote and on-premises consulting support for Cisco routers, see Cisco router configuration and management consulting.)

Cisco Catalyst 3650 Series are 1RU switches intended for SMBs and satellite offices and have a built-in wireless network controller with the ability to handle 40 Gb of wireless capacity for each switch and 25 access points and 1000 clients per switch. Cisco Catalyst 3850 Series are 1RU switches intended for mid-size and large organizations and feature an integrated wireless network controller supporting 40 Gb of wireless throughput on each switch and the ability to handle up to 50 access points and 2000 wireless clients. The Wireless Services Module2 is a plug-in blade for Catalyst 6500 Series switches with an integrated wireless LAN controller designed for mid-to-large size businesses and capable of 20 Gbps performance and with support for up to 1000 access points and up to 15,000 wireless clients. (To learn about Progent's online and onsite consulting support for Catalyst switches, refer to Cisco switches deployment and management support.)

Cisco 2500 Wireless Controllers are economical desktop devices that simplify the provisioning and management of Wi-Fi networks for small and midsize businesses and satellite offices.

Legacy Cisco WLAN Controllers
Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers Consulting FirmCisco's legacy Wireless Network Controllers centralize the management of wireless networks by streamlining the control of common functions including intrusion prevention, real-time RF management, automatic configuration, and full N+1 redundancy. These controllers operate with thin access points to offer high throughput and extensive control capabilities.

Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers (WLCs) provide the control, expandability, protection, and resilience that system managers require to build secure, enterprise-scale wireless solutions, from satellite offices to small companies to main campuses. Cisco's first-generation Wireless Network Controllers can be clustered to offer support for as many as 2,400 wireless access points for each roaming domain.

Cisco's WLCM or WLCM-E Module for Integrated Services Routers offers small-to medium businesses and large corporations an affordable way to implement and control secure WLANs at satellite locations.

    Progent provides technical services for medium size businesses who have 100 to 250 system users. The medium size business or office has traditionally been an underserved segment of the market for network support services. The overhead and service access models of major third-party service organizations make them too expensive for the typical small company or small medium business (SMB), which usually has a minimal information technology budget with which to support an information network whose complexity and capability are often comparable to the information systems of much bigger companies. Progent's support delivery model, which takes great advantage of remote service, virtual network technology and 24x7 server monitoring, dramatically reduces the network support expenses of an SMB while offering the mid-size organization with enterprise-level service from professional, IT consultants with background in a wide range of small business technologies. If your medium size company or small business is looking for the quality of IT support needed by a mid-size office without paying big-company prices, call Progent.
