Cisco Wi-Fi controllers streamline the administration of Wi-Fi environments by centralizing the deployment and control of Wi-Fi access points, optimizing Wi-Fi performance by reducing the impact of RF interference, improving Wi-Fi uptime with rapid auto-failover, and hardening protection by uncovering threats and filtering content based on user type and location.

Cisco WiFi controllers work with Cisco's Prime Infrastructure platform, which can support up to 6,000 wireless APs and 64,000 users. Cisco's family of wireless controllers are available at prices and with capabilities appropriate for venues ranging from branch offices to service provider networks, enterprises, and dense campus environments. Cisco's Wave 2 WiFi controllers and Wi-Fi access points are engineered to deliver the high standard of protection, performance and reliability that users are accustomed to from their wired network. Cisco's technology incorporates built-in mobility support such as IP voice, HD video, and protected guest access. Cisco's Prime Infrastructure architecture makes it possible for organizations to build systems that integrate wired and wireless networks into a unified ecosystem that ensures a consistent and productive work environment.

Cisco Wave 2 802.11ax Wireless LAN Controllers
Cisco Wave 2 Wi-Fi controllers enable realtime data exchange, provisioning, management, monitoring and troubleshooting for Cisco wireless appliances and services. Cisco offers both hardware and virtual Wi-Fi controllers for centralized administration of WiFi networks, but WLANs with a large number of wireless APs are better served by hardware-based Wi-Fi controllers. New Wi-Fi controller devices from Cisco offer significant advantages in comparison to Wave 1 and earlier models such as greater throughput, concurrent support for 1G and 10G Ethernet, improved application visibility and control (AVC), and hardened, built-in security.

Cisco 3504 Wi-Fi Controller Setup and Troubleshooting ConsultingCisco's 3504 WiFi Controller is an entry-level device with a desktop body and designed for smaller businesses. You can use the 3504 model in a centralized network environment such as in small branch and home-based offices administered over the WAN with Cisco FlexConnect, or in bridge deployments where Ethernet cabling is sparse. The 3504 wireless controller supports as many as 150 APs and 3,000 users, delivers 4 Gbps performance, and supports up to 4,096 VLANs. The 3504 WiFi controller features a multi-gigabit Ethernet port (up to 5 Gigabit Ethernet) and four 1-Gigabit Ethernet connections. APs can be connected directly to the controller via two Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports. The 3504 wireless controller offers subsecond failover for APs and clients, which provides high availability for applications. Like other current Wave 2 wireless controllers from Cisco, the 3504 device has the built-in capability to communicate with Cisco Prime Infrastructure, Cisco Mobility Services, and Cisco 5520 and 8540 wireless controllers.

Cisco 5520 Wireless Controller Integration ConsultantsCisco's 5520 WiFi Controller, offered in a 1 rack unit (RU) form factor, is designed for midsize to large enterprises and campus networks and can be used in centralized, distributed, and mesh architectures. The 5520 Wi-Fi controller can handle up to 1,500 access points and 20,000 client users, delivers 20 Gbps performance, and supports up to 4,096 VLANs. The 5520 WiFi controller includes two 10 GE interfaces and features SSD storage, redundant fans, optional redundant power supplies, and subsecond failover for uninterrupted availability.

Cisco 8540 Wireless Controller Integration ConsultingThe Cisco 8540 Wireless Controller, available in a 2 rack unit (RU) package, is a high-end wireless controller designed to support enterprises, service providers, and large campus environments. The 8540 WiFi controller can be used in centralized, distributed, and mesh deployments and supports up to 6,000 wireless APs and 64,000 clients.

The 8340 includes four 1-GB or 10GE ports and features solid-state storage, dual power supplies, backup fans, and rapid failover.

Wave 1 Cisco WiFi Network Controllers
Wireless LAN Controllers ConsultantsCisco wireless network controllers reduce the effort and expense needed to deploy, monitor, and troubleshoot wireless networks by centralizing control of functions like provisioning access points, applying consistent policies across converged wired and wireless LANs, supporting enterprise-wide QoS for IP voice and HD video, tracking and optimizing system health, activating intrusion prevention capabilities to defend against unauthorized access and Distributed Denial of Service threats, and managing IPv6 clients. Cisco has designed wireless network controllers for businesses of any size and can provide standalone desktop appliances, modular add-on wireless controllers for Cisco ISR routers and switches, and switches with built-in wireless LAN controllers.

Cisco Wireless Network Controller Module ConsultantsCisco's Wave 1 wireless controllers include Cisco CleanAir technology to avoid signal interference and create self-healing wireless LANs for maximum 802.11n and 802.11ac performance and protection. Integrated Bonjour Gateways allow discovery and policy throughout WLAN, LAN and WAN for Apple applications. For fault tolerance, Cisco wireless network controllers support access point and client stateful switchover by enabling a backup HA wireless controller to synch with a main wireless controller for AP license tabulation, CAPWAP state and roaming keys, and AP CAPWAP state. If the primary controller stops working, thousands of wireless access points and wireless clients can failover in less than a second to the secondary wireless network controller.

Cisco's Wireless Controller Module for ISR Routers with UCS-E offers basic 802.11n and 802.11ac capability for Cisco 2900 and 3900 routers used by small to medium-sized businesses and branches. This value-priced and scalable solution can handle from five to 200 APs and as many as 6000 wireless clients. (To find out about Progent's online and onsite consulting and troubleshooting support for Cisco routers, refer to Cisco router deployment and management support.)
