Cisco Wi-Fi controllers streamline the administration of Wi-Fi networks by unifying the deployment and administration of Wi-Fi APs, maximizing wireless performance by reducing the effects of radio congestion, improving Wi-Fi availability with fast and automatic failover, and tightening security by detecting cyber threats and filtering traffic content based on user type and location.

Cisco's Wi-Fi controllers work with Cisco's Prime Infrastructure and DNA Center management solutions and can support up to 6,000 wireless access points and 64,000 clients. Cisco's family of Wi-Fi controllers are available at prices and with capabilities appropriate for networks ranging from small offices to service provider systems, multi-site enterprises, and large campus environments. Cisco's 802.11ax and 802.11ac controllers and APs are designed to deliver the high level of protection, speed and robustness that users are accustomed to from their wired environments. Cisco's technology incorporates built-in mobility services like Voice over IP, HD video, and protected guest access. Cisco's Prime Infrastructure and DNAC architecture make it possible for businesses to build systems that integrate wired and wireless networks into a centrally managed ecosystem that ensures a consistent and productive user experience.

Wave 1 Cisco Wireless Network Controllers
Wireless LAN Controllers Consulting ServicesCisco wireless controllers cut the effort and cost needed to deploy, monitor, and troubleshoot Wi-Fi networks by offering single-point control of functions like setting up wireless access points, applying consistent policies throughout converged wired/wireless networks, supporting enterprise-wide Quality of Service for voice and HD video, tracking and optimizing network health, activating wireless intrusion prevention system (wIPS) tools to guard against unauthorized access and Distributed Denial of Service attacks, and handling IPv6 and dual-stack clients. Cisco has designed wireless network controllers for organizations of any size and offers desktop or rackmount controllers, modular plug-in wireless controllers for Cisco routers and switches, and Catalyst switches with built-in wireless network controllers.

Cisco Wireless Network Controller Module Configuration and Support ConsultingCisco's Wave 1 WiFi controllers incorporate Cisco CleanAir tools to minimize RF interference and produce self-healing wireless networks for top 802.11n and 802.11ac throughput and security. Built-in Apple Bonjour Gateways permit discovery across WLAN, LAN and WAN for Apple applications. For high availability, Cisco wireless controllers support wireless access point and client stateful failover by enabling a standby high-availability controller to synch with a main controller for access point license tabulation, CAPWAP state and roaming keys, and AP CAPWAP state. In case the main wireless controller fails, thousands of wireless access points and clients can failover at subsecond speeds to the secondary wireless network controller.
