Cisco wireless controllers streamline the management of Wi-Fi environments by centralizing the deployment and control of Wi-Fi access points, maximizing Wi-Fi performance by reducing the impact of radio interference, enhancing Wi-Fi uptime with fast and automatic failover, and hardening protection by detecting cyber threats and filtering traffic content based on user type and location.

Cisco wireless controllers work with Cisco's Prime Infrastructure and DNA Center (DNAC) network management tools and are able to accommodate as many as 6,000 Wi-Fi access points and 64,000 client users. Cisco's family of Wi-Fi controllers are available at price points and with capabilities appropriate for networks that run from small offices to service provider systems, multi-site enterprises, and dense campus deployments. Cisco's Wi-Fi 6 and Wi-Fi 5 controllers and wireless access points are engineered to provide the high standard of protection, performance and robustness that users expect from their wired network. Cisco's technology incorporates integrated mobility support like IP voice, HD video, and secure guest access. Cisco's Prime Infrastructure and DNA Center platforms make it possible for organizations to implement environments that combine wired and wireless networks into a centrally managed solution that provides a seamless and productive work environment.

Cisco 9800 Series Wi-Fi 6 Wireless Controllers
Cisco Catalyst 9800 family of Wi-Fi 6-supported wireless LAN controllers allow you to manage advanced Wi-Fi networks that support 802.11ax wireless APs. The 802.11ax standard, aka Wi-Fi 6, builds on previous generation 802.11ac (referred to as Wi-Fi 5) devices by providing lower latency and more reliable performance, allowing higher client user density, providing greater protection, conserving energy for battery-powered mobile devices, and allowing more flexibility for handling new types of Internet-of-Things endpoints. Cisco's Catalyst 9800 line Wi-Fi controllers include high availability with seamless software upgrades, live fixes, and the ability to add Wi-Fi access points with zero disruption of service. Enhanced cybersecurity features include Encrypted Traffic Analytics (ETA), secure boot, and Cisco Software-Defined Access. Streaming telemetry permits you to monitor and analyze network and endpoint health. All appliances in the Catalyst 9800 line are based on Cisco's IOS XE Software and work with Cisco's DNA Center (DNAC) or with Prime Infrastructure management platforms. Catalyst 9800 Series wireless LAN controllers can support Cisco Aironet 802.11ac Wave 1 and Wave 2 Wi-Fi access points concurrently with Cisco Catalyst 9100 Wi-Fi 6 access points.

Wave 1 Cisco WiFi LAN Controllers
Wireless Network Controllers Configuration and Support ConsultingCisco wireless controllers reduce the time and expense needed to deploy, manage, and operate wireless networks by offering single-point control of critical functions like provisioning APs, enforcing single-point policies throughout converged wired and wireless LANs, supporting enterprise-wide Quality of Service for IP voice and video, monitoring and optimizing network performance, implementing intrusion prevention tools to defend against unauthorized access and Distributed Denial of Service attacks, and managing IPv6 clients. Cisco has designed wireless LAN controllers for organizations of all sizes and can provide desktop or rackmount appliances, modular plug-in controllers for Cisco ISR routers and switches, and switches with integrated wireless LAN controllers.

Cisco Wireless LAN Controller Module Online Consulting ServicesCisco's Wave 1 wireless controllers incorporate Cisco CleanAir tools to avoid RF interference and create self-healing and self-optimizing wireless networks for maximum 802.11n and 802.11ac throughput and protection. Built-in Apple Bonjour Gateways allow discovery throughout WLAN, LAN and WAN for Apple-based applications. For high availability (HA), Cisco wireless controllers allow wireless access point and client stateful failover by permitting a standby HA wireless controller to synch with a main controller for access point license count, CAPWAP state and roaming keys, and access point CAPWAP state. In case the main wireless controller fails, thousands of access points and clients can failover in less than a second to the secondary wireless LAN controller.
