Cisco Wi-Fi controllers streamline the administration of Wi-Fi environments by unifying the configuration and management of wireless APs, maximizing wireless performance by reducing the impact of radio congestion, improving Wi-Fi uptime with rapid and automatic failover, and hardening security by detecting threats and filtering content based on client ID and location.

Cisco's wireless controllers integrate with Cisco's Prime Infrastructure platform, which can accommodate as many as 6,000 Wi-Fi access points and 64,000 users. Cisco's family of wireless controllers are offered at prices and with capabilities suitable for networks ranging from small or home offices to service provider systems, enterprises, and large campus deployments. Cisco's 802.11ax controllers and APs are designed to provide the same level of security, speed and robustness that companies expect in their wired network. Cisco's technology includes integrated mobility support like IP voice, HD video, and protected guest access. Cisco's Prime Infrastructure architecture makes it possible for businesses to implement systems that integrate wired and wireless networks into a unified ecosystem that delivers a seamless and productive user experience.

Cisco Wave 2 WiFi Network Controllers
Cisco Wave 2 wireless controllers allow realtime data exchange, deployment, administration, analysis and debugging for Cisco wireless appliances and services. Cisco has developed both physical and software-based wireless controllers for centralized administration of WiFi environments, but WLANs with many wireless access points typically require physical Wi-Fi controllers. New wireless controller devices from Cisco offer major advantages over Wave 1 and older models including higher performance, simultaneous support for 1G and 10G interfaces, improved application visibility and control (AVC), and advanced, integrated protection.

Cisco 3504 Wireless Controller Setup and Troubleshooting ConsultingThe Cisco 3504 WiFi Controller is a value-priced device available in a desktop form factor and designed for smaller businesses. You can install the 3504 in a centralized WLAN environment such as in small branch and remote offices administered across the wide-area network via FlexConnect, or in bridge deployments where wiring is limited. The 3504 wireless controller supports as many as 150 access points and 3,000 client users, offers 4 Gbps throughput, and supports up to 4,096 VLANs. The 3504 wireless controller features a Cisco Multigigabit port and four 1-Gigabit Ethernet interfaces. APs can be attached to the WiFi controller through two Power over Ethernet (PoE) ports. The 3504 Wi-Fi controller offers subsecond failover for APs and clients, which allows uninterrupted availability for apps. Like other current Wave 2 Wi-Fi controllers from Cisco, the 3504 device has the integrated capability to communicate with Cisco Prime Infrastructure, Cisco Mobility Services, and Cisco 5520 and 8540 wireless controllers.

Cisco 5520 Wireless Controller Setup and Troubleshooting ConsultingThe Cisco 5520 Wireless Controller, available in a 1 rack unit form factor, is intended to support larger organizations and campus environments and can be used in centralized, distributed, and mesh deployments. The 5520 wireless 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 wireless controller features two 10 GE interfaces and incorporates solid-state storage, redundant fans, optional dual power supplies, and rapid failover for uninterrupted availability.

Cisco 8540 Wi-Fi Controller Configuration ConsultantsThe Cisco 8540 Wireless Controller, available in a 2 rack unit package, is a high-end WiFi controller designed to support enterprises, service providers, and large campuses. The 8540 Wireless controller can be used in centralized, distributed, and mesh deployments and can handle as many as 6,000 Wi-Fi access points and 64,000 clients. The 8540 WiFi controller offers data rates up to 40 Gbps and supports up to 4,096 VLANs. The 8540 controller includes four 1-GB or 10GE interfaces and features solid-state storage, backup power supplies, redundant fans, and rapid failover.

Wave 1 Cisco Wireless Network Controllers
Wireless LAN Controllers ConsultantsCisco wireless LAN controllers cut the time and expense required to deploy, manage, and troubleshoot Wi-Fi networks by offering single-point control of critical functions like setting up wireless access points, enforcing single-point policies across converged wired and wireless networks, supporting enterprise-wide QoS for IP voice and HD video, tracking and optimizing network performance, implementing intrusion prevention capabilities to defend against unauthorized access and DoS attacks, and managing IPv6 clients. Cisco has developed wireless network controllers for businesses of all sizes and offers standalone desktop controllers, modular add-on controllers for Cisco ISR routers and switches, and Catalyst switches with integrated wireless network controllers.

Cisco Wireless Network Controller Module Configuration and Support ConsultingCisco's Wave 1 wireless controllers include Cisco CleanAir tools to minimize signal interference and create self-optimizing wireless LANs for maximum 802.11n and 802.11ac throughput and protection. Built-in Apple Bonjour Gateways allow discovery and policy throughout the enterprise for Apple-based applications. For fault tolerance, Cisco wireless network controllers support access point and client stateful failover by permitting a backup HA wireless controller to synch with a primary wireless controller for AP license tabulation, CAPWAP keys, and access point CAPWAP state. In case the main controller goes down, thousands of APs and wireless clients can failover immediately to the secondary wireless controller.

Cisco's Wireless Controller Module for ISR Routers with UCS-E provides basic 802.11n and 802.11ac capability for Cisco 2900 and 3900 routers used by smaller organizations and branches. This affordable and scalable solution can handle up to 200 wireless access points and up to 6000 wireless clients. (For information about Progent's remote and on-premises consulting support services for Cisco routers, refer to Cisco router deployment and management support.)

Cisco Catalyst 3650 Series are 1RU switches intended for SMBs and branch offices and have an integrated wireless network controller with the capability to handle 40 Gb of wireless capacity for each switch and up to 25 wireless access points and 1000 wireless clients per switch or stack. Cisco Catalyst 3850 Series are 1RU switches designed for midsize and large organizations and include a built-in wireless LAN controller supporting up to 40 Gb of wireless capacity on each switch and support for 50 APs and up to 2000 wireless clients. The 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 businesses and able to deliver 20 Gbps performance and with support for 1000 APs and up to 15,000 clients. (For information concerning Progent's support for Cisco Catalyst switches, see Catalyst switches configuration and management consulting.)

Cisco 2500 Series Wireless Controllers are entry-level desktop units that simplify the provisioning and management of Wi-Fi LANs for small to medium-sized enterprises and branches. The Cisco 2500 wireless controller can handle from five to 75 wireless access points and 1000 wireless clients and offers sustained data rates of up to 1 Gbps.

Cisco Wireless Controllers Consulting ServicesThe Cisco 5500 Series Wireless Controller is an expandable 1RU unit designed for medium-sized to large enterprises and campus environments and can manage up to 500 APs and 7,000 clients while delivering 8 Gbps performance. Cisco's 5760 Series Wireless Controller is a 1RU appliance designed for mid-to-large campus environments with support for 1000 access points and 12,000 wireless clients and delivering performance of 60 Gbps to accommodate high client densities and high amounts of video-intensive mobile applications.

Cisco's Flex 7500 Series Wireless Controller is designed to manage massive collections of wireless branches from a single datacenter, eliminating the costs of a wireless controller at each remote site. The 1RU rackmount Flex 7500 appliance allows you to establish a private cloud to configure, track, maintain, and repair up to 6000 wireless access points and 64,000 wireless clients while handling 1 Gbps performance. Cisco's 8500 Wireless Controller is a 1RU device engineered to manage wireless environments for very large campuses or service providers and can be expanded to support up to 6000 wireless points and up to 64,000 clients while offering 10 Gbps throughput.
