Cisco wireless controllers streamline the management of Wi-Fi environments by centralizing the deployment and management of wireless access points, optimizing Wi-Fi performance by reducing the impact of radio congestion, enhancing Wi-Fi availability with fast and automatic failover, and tightening security by uncovering threats and filtering content based on client ID and location.

Cisco's wireless controllers work with Cisco's Prime Infrastructure and DNA Center (DNAC) network management tools and can accommodate as many as 6,000 Wi-Fi access points and 64,000 clients. Cisco's line of wireless controllers are available at prices and with feature sets suitable for networks that run from small offices to service provider systems, enterprises, and large campus deployments. Cisco's 802.11ax and 802.11ac controllers and wireless access points are engineered to provide the high standard of protection, speed and robustness that users are accustomed to in their wired environments. Cisco's technology incorporates integrated mobility services like Voice over IP, HD video, and safe guest access. Cisco's Prime Infrastructure and DNA Center platforms make it possible for businesses to build environments that integrate wired and Wi-Fi networks into a centrally managed solution that ensures a seamless and productive user experience.

Cisco 9800 Series Wi-Fi 6 Wireless Controllers
Cisco Catalyst 9800 Series Wi-Fi 6-compatible wireless LAN controllers allow you to automate and manage modern wireless environments that incorporate 802.11ax Wi-Fi access points. The 802.11ax standard, popularly known as Wi-Fi 6, builds on prior generation 802.11ac (called Wi-Fi 5) devices by delivering less latency and more predictable performance, allowing higher client density, offering greater protection, saving energy for battery-dependent mobile devices, and allowing more flexibility for supporting the latest kinds of Internet-of-Things endpoints. Cisco's Catalyst 9800 family wireless controllers feature high availability with seamless software upgrades, live fixes, and the ability to connect additional APs without downtime. Advanced security features include Encrypted Traffic Analytics (ETA), image signing, and Software-Defined Access. Streaming telemetry permits you to monitor and analyze network and endpoint health. All controllers in the Catalyst 9800 line are based on Cisco's IOS XE Software and operate with Cisco's DNA Center or Prime Infrastructure network management platforms. Catalyst 9800 Series wireless network controllers can manage Cisco Aironet Wi-Fi 5 Wave 1 and Wave 2 APs concurrently with Cisco Catalyst 9100 Series 802.11ax access points.

Cisco Wave 2 802.11ac Wi-Fi 5 Wireless Network Controllers
Cisco Wave 2 Wi-Fi 5 wireless controllers allow realtime data exchange, provisioning, administration, monitoring and debugging for Cisco Wi-Fi devices and software services. Cisco has developed both physical and software-based wireless controllers for unified administration of wireless environments, but WLANs with many Wi-Fi access points are better served by physical Wi-Fi controllers. Wave 2 Wi-Fi controller appliances from Cisco offer significant benefits over Wave 1 and older products including higher throughput, simultaneous support for both 1G and 10G interfaces, improved application visibility and control (AVC), and hardened, built-in protection.

Cisco Wireless Controller Consultants

Wave 1 Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers
Wireless Network Controllers ConsultantsCisco wireless LAN controllers reduce the time and expense needed to deploy, monitor, and troubleshoot wireless networks by offering single-point control of functions such as provisioning wireless access points, applying single-point policies throughout wired/wireless networks, supporting enterprise-wide QoS for voice and video, monitoring and troubleshooting system performance, activating wireless intrusion prevention system (wIPS) capabilities to defend against cyber break-ins and DDoS attacks, and managing IPv6 clients. Cisco has designed wireless LAN controllers for organizations of all sizes and can provide standalone desktop appliances, modular plug-in wireless controllers for Cisco ISR routers and switches, and Catalyst switches with built-in wireless controllers.

Cisco Wireless LAN Controller Module Configuration and Support ConsultingCisco's Wave 1 wireless LAN controllers incorporate Cisco CleanAir tools to minimize RF interference and create self-healing wireless networks for top 802.11n and 802.11ac throughput and protection. Built-in Apple Bonjour Gateways permit discovery, advertisement and policy across WLAN, LAN and WAN for Apple-based applications. For high availability (HA), Cisco wireless network controllers allow AP and client stateful failover by permitting a backup high-availability wireless controller to synch with a primary controller for AP license tabulation, CAPWAP keys, and access point CAPWAP state. If the main controller goes down, thousands of access points and wireless clients can failover immediately to the secondary wireless network controller.

Cisco's Wireless Module for ISR G2 Routers with UCS-E offers basic 802.11n and 802.11ac capability for Cisco 2900 and 3900 Series routers deployed by smaller organizations and branches.
