Cisco wireless controllers simplify the management of Wi-Fi networks by centralizing the deployment and administration of wireless access points, optimizing Wi-Fi throughput by minimizing the effects of radio congestion, improving Wi-Fi uptime with fast and automatic failover, and hardening protection by uncovering cyber threats and filtering traffic content based on user type and location.

Cisco's WiFi controllers work with Cisco's Prime Infrastructure platform, which can accommodate as many as 6,000 wireless access points and 64,000 clients. Cisco's line of wireless controllers are offered at prices and with feature sets suitable for networks that run from small or home offices to service provider systems, enterprises, and dense campus deployments. Cisco's 802.11ax controllers and APs are engineered to deliver the same standard of security, speed and robustness that users are accustomed to in their wired environments. Cisco's technology includes integrated mobility support such as IP voice, HD video, and protected guest access. Cisco's Prime Infrastructure platform makes it possible for businesses to implement environments that combine wired and wireless networks into a unified solution that provides a seamless and productive work environment.

Cisco Wave 2 WiFi LAN Controllers
Cisco Wave 2 Wi-Fi controllers allow fast communication, provisioning, administration, analysis and debugging for Cisco Wi-Fi devices and services. Cisco has developed both physical and software-based Wi-Fi controllers for centralized administration of WiFi networks, but WLANs with many wireless access points are better served by hardware-based Wi-Fi controllers. Current generation Wi-Fi controller devices from Cisco offer significant advantages in comparison to Wave 1 and earlier models including higher performance, simultaneous support for both 1G and 10G Ethernet, improved application visibility and control (AVC), and advanced, integrated security.

Cisco 3504 Wi-Fi Controller Setup and Troubleshooting ConsultingThe Cisco 3504 WiFi Controller is a value-priced device with a desktop body and intended for small and medium-sized businesses. You can install the 3504 model in a centralized WLAN architecture such as in small branch and home-based offices administered over the wide-area network with Cisco FlexConnect, or in mesh deployments where Ethernet cabling is limited. The 3504 Wi-Fi controller supports as many as 150 WiFi access points and 3,000 users, offers 4 Gbps throughput, and supports up to 4,096 VLANs. Cisco's 3504 wireless controller includes a Cisco Multigigabit port (up to 5 Gigabit Ethernet) and four 1-Gigabit Ethernet ports. Access points can be connected to the controller via two Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports. The 3504 wireless controller offers subsecond failover for APs and clients, which allows nonstop availability for applications. As with other Wave 2 Wi-Fi controllers available from Cisco, the 3504 model has the built-in capability to communicate with Cisco Prime Infrastructure, Cisco Mobility Services Engine, and Cisco 5520 and 8540 WLAN controllers.

Cisco 5520 Wireless Controller Integration ConsultantsCisco's 5520 WiFi Controller, available in a 1 rack unit (RU) package, is intended to support midsize to large organizations and campus networks and can be run in centralized, distributed, and mesh deployments. The 5520 wireless controller can handle up to 1,500 APs and 20,000 client users, delivers 20 Gbps throughput, and supports 4,096 VLANs. The 5520 model controller features two 10 GE interfaces and features solid-state storage, backup fans, optional backup power supplies, and subsecond failover for high availability.

Cisco 8540 Wireless Controller Configuration ConsultingCisco's 8540 Wireless Controller, available in a 2RU enclosure, is a top-of-the-line wireless controller designed to support large enterprises, service providers, and large campuses. The 8540 Wireless controller can be run in centralized, distributed, and mesh architectures and supports up to 6,000 access points and 64,000 clients. The 8540 WiFi controller offers throughput as high as 40 Gbps and supports 4,096 VLANs. The 8540 controller includes four 1-GB or 10GE interfaces and features SSD storage, redundant power supplies, backup fans, and subsecond failover.

Wave 1 Cisco Wireless Network Controllers
Wireless LAN Controllers Configuration and Support ConsultingCisco wireless controllers reduce the time and expense needed to configure, manage, and operate wireless networks by offering single-point control of critical functions such as provisioning APs, enforcing single-point policies throughout converged wired/wireless LANs, supporting enterprise-wide Quality of Service (QoS) for IP voice and HD video, tracking and troubleshooting network health, implementing wireless intrusion prevention system (wIPS) capabilities to guard against cyber break-ins and Denial of Service attacks, and handling IPv6 clients. Cisco has developed wireless LAN controllers for businesses of any size and offers desktop or rackmount controllers, modular plug-in controllers for Cisco routers and Catalyst switches, and switches with built-in wireless network controllers.

Cisco Wireless Network Controller Module Consulting ServicesCisco's Wave 1 wireless network controllers include Cisco CleanAir technology to minimize signal interference and produce self-optimizing wireless LANs for maximum 802.11n and 802.11ac performance and protection. Integrated Apple Bonjour Gateways permit discovery, advertisement and policy across WLAN, LAN and WAN for Apple-based applications. For fault tolerance, Cisco wireless network controllers support AP and client stateful failover by permitting a standby HA controller to synchronize with a main controller for access point license count, CAPWAP state and roaming keys, and AP CAPWAP state. In case the main wireless controller goes down, thousands of wireless access points and wireless clients can failover in less than a second to the secondary wireless LAN controller.

Cisco's Wireless Controller Module for ISR G2 Routers with UCS-E provides entry-level 802.11n and 802.11ac support for Cisco 2900 and 3900 Series routers deployed by small to medium-sized businesses and satellite offices. This value-priced and expandable solution can support from five to 200 APs and up to 6000 wireless clients. (To find out about Progent's remote and on-premises consulting and troubleshooting services for Cisco routers, refer to Cisco router configuration and troubleshooting consulting.)

Catalyst 3650 Series are 1RU switches intended for small to mid-size businesses and branches and have an integrated wireless controller with the ability to handle up to 40 Gb of wireless capacity for each switch and up to 25 APs and 1000 clients per switch. Catalyst 3850 Series are 1RU switches designed for midsize and large organizations and feature an integrated wireless controller supporting up to 40 Gb of wireless throughput per switch and support for 50 access points and up to 2000 wireless clients. The Wireless Services Module2 (WiSM2) is an add-in blade for Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series switches that include an integrated wireless LAN controller designed for mid-to-large size enterprises and capable of 20 Gbps throughput and with support for 1000 APs and as many as 15,000 clients. (For information concerning Progent's consulting services for Cisco switches, refer to Catalyst switches configuration and troubleshooting consulting.)

Cisco 2500 Wireless Controllers are value-priced desktop appliances that simplify the deployment and management of Wi-Fi LANs for SMBs and branches. The Cisco 2500 wireless controller can manage from five to 75 access points and 1000 clients and offers sustained performance of 1 Gbps.

Cisco Wireless Network Controllers Consulting and TroubleshootingThe Cisco 5500 Wireless Controller is a scalable 1RU appliance intended for mid-to-large sized enterprises and campuses and can support 500 APs and 7,000 clients while delivering 8 Gbps throughput. The Cisco 5760 Series Wireless Controller is a 1RU device designed for mid-to-large campuses with the ability to manage up to 1000 wireless access points and 12,000 wireless clients and delivering performance of 60 Gbps to accommodate high client densities and high usage of media-rich applications.

Cisco's Flex 7500 Wireless Controller is intended to enable centralized management of massive collections of wireless branches from a single datacenter, avoiding the requirement for a Wi-Fi controller at each branch. The 1RU Flex 7500 appliance lets you create a private cloud to configure, track, manage, and troubleshoot up to 6000 access points and 64,000 clients while handling 1 Gbps throughput. The Cisco 8500 Wireless Controller is a 1RU rackmount appliance engineered to manage wireless environments for large campuses or service providers and can be expanded to handle up to 6000 wireless points and up to 64,000 clients while offering 10 Gbps performance.
