Cisco wireless controllers simplify the administration of Wi-Fi networks by unifying the deployment and administration of Wi-Fi access points, maximizing Wi-Fi throughput by reducing the effects of radio congestion, enhancing Wi-Fi uptime with fast and automatic failover, and tightening protection by detecting cyber threats and filtering content based on client type and location.

Cisco wireless controllers integrate with Cisco's Prime Infrastructure and DNA Center (DNAC) management tools and can support as many as 6,000 wireless access points and 64,000 users. Cisco's line of Wi-Fi controllers are available at price points and with feature sets appropriate for venues that run from branch offices to service provider networks, enterprises, and dense campus deployments. Cisco's 802.11ax Wi-Fi 6 and Wave 2 Wi-Fi 5 controllers and access points are designed to deliver the same standard of protection, speed and robustness that companies are accustomed to in their wired network. Cisco's technology includes built-in mobility services such as IP voice, HD video, and secure guest access. Cisco's Prime Infrastructure and DNAC platforms make it possible for businesses to build systems that integrate wired and wireless networks into a centrally managed solution that provides a consistent and productive user experience.

Cisco 9800 Series Wi-Fi 6 Wireless Controllers
Catalyst 9800 line of Wi-Fi 6-supported wireless controllers allow you to manage modern wireless networks that incorporate 802.11ax wireless APs. 802.11ax, also called Wi-Fi 6, improves on prior generation 802.11ac (referred to as Wi-Fi 5) devices by delivering lower latency and more reliable performance, supporting higher client user density, offering greater security, saving energy for battery-dependent handheld devices, and offering more versatility for supporting new types of Internet-of-Things endpoints. Catalyst 9800 family Wi-Fi controllers feature high availability with transparent software updates, live patching, and the ability to connect additional Wi-Fi access points without service interruption. Advanced security features include Cisco Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS), secure boot, and Software-Defined Access (SD-Access). Streaming telemetry permits you to monitor and understand infrastructure and endpoint health. All appliances in the Catalyst 9800 family are based on Cisco's IOS XE Software and work with Cisco's DNA Center (DNAC) or Prime Infrastructure management platforms. Catalyst 9800 wireless LAN controllers can support Cisco Aironet Wi-Fi 5 Wave 1 and Wave 2 APs concurrently with Catalyst 9100 802.11ax Wi-Fi access points.

Wave 1 Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers
Wireless LAN Controllers Consulting ServicesCisco wireless LAN controllers reduce the effort and cost required to configure, monitor, and troubleshoot wireless networks by centralizing control of critical functions such as setting up APs, enforcing single-point policies throughout converged wired/wireless networks, supporting enterprise-wide Quality of Service for IP voice and HD video, monitoring and optimizing system performance, implementing intrusion prevention capabilities to guard against unauthorized access and Distributed Denial of Service threats, and handling IPv6 clients. Cisco has designed wireless network controllers for businesses of all sizes and offers desktop or rackmount controllers, modular add-on controllers for Cisco ISR routers and Catalyst switches, and Catalyst switches with integrated wireless LAN controllers.

Cisco Wireless LAN Controller Module ConsultantsCisco's Wave 1 wireless controllers include Cisco CleanAir technology to minimize RF interference and produce self-healing wireless networks for maximum 802.11n and 802.11ac throughput and security. Integrated Apple Bonjour Gateways allow discovery, advertisement and policy across the enterprise for Apple applications. For high availability (HA), Cisco wireless LAN controllers allow wireless access point and client stateful switchover by permitting a backup HA controller to synchronize with a primary controller for access point license tabulation, CAPWAP state and roaming keys, and AP CAPWAP state. If the primary wireless controller goes down, thousands of access points and clients can switchover immediately to the secondary wireless LAN controller.
