Cisco 8540 Wireless Controller

In case one needs to manage a complex network with a significant number of access points, Cisco 8540 Wireless Controller is an appropriate solution since it can handle well a large amount of nodes and allows a detailed and customized configuration of each one of the APs in an individual way. For a small number of devices, the price does not justify of use of such powerful solution.

With the range of models that are available, you can deploy the Mojo solution in any size environment; no matter the venue. We have deployed the solution in small and large college dorms, fitness facilities, and smart home apartments, with no issues. I have never had an issue deploying the Mojos in any of these environments.

Cons

Cisco 8540 Wireless Controller

  • The help information is sometimes not very clear. An item may have a reference number next to it, at the bottom of the page it will have an explanation, but sometimes they are too brief to make sense.
  • If they can somehow add debugging on the page instead of requiring us to go through the CLI to collect the debug ut put, that would be great.

  • For some reason they user VLAN 0 as the native VLAN. I am used to VLAN 1 being the native VLAN for all solutions I work with. I had to retrain my mind to understand that Mojo uses VLAN 0. It may be a minor detail, but it would be nice if they have VLAN 1 as the native, like other vendors.
  • It would be nice to be able to create a predictive survey report using the web GUI.

The times I have needed to contact support, they were excellent. Making sure that the solution was operating at the level of what was expected, and taking the time to explain any features that I may have had a question about. They are customer-focused and strive to satisfy the customer every time.

Alternatives Considered

Cisco 8540 Wireless Controller

We tried out the Cisco Catalyst 9800-40 in the past and haven't noticed too much difference with the Cisco 8540 Wireless Controller. We generally trust Cisco products and found no issues within any product we have purchased in the past. We have looked at other organization's products but we believe Cisco is the best for us.
