Cisco 8540 Wireless Controller

[Cisco 8540 Wireless Controller's] software quality has been shed in recent years. The only problem I have with it is its inability to work with older Cisco Access Points. However, that's to be expected for any deployment. While the controller's UI works well, some areas could be improved. API integrations lack flexibility. [I feel] it's time for policy redesign. It can be a little difficult to determine coding quality.

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.

Pros

Cisco 8540 Wireless Controller

  • The GUI on the Cisco 8540 WLC is much better designed than other Cisco products. Its easy to navigate between the different settings to find what is needed.
  • The AP groups allows touching multiple APs at one time.
  • It also allows us to create standard SSIDs that can be used at all sites that connect back to it, this saves a lot of time instead of hitting each site with a local controller.

  • Advanced guest wifi capabilities that integrate with our REWARDS platform.
  • Enterprise-wide configurations with minimal effort.
  • Creative team of engineers to customize aspects of the solution to our unique needs.

Cons

Cisco 8540 Wireless Controller

  • Code quality is a bit hit and miss. This will be great for a while, then things will be bad for a while, then we'll do it again. The UI of the controller works, but could do with a refresh, and I would like to see some improvement on layout and organization.
  • The constant code/firmware upgrades and the QA of new code could be better.
  • Maybe the compatibility with old Cisco Access Points could be improved, but it's normal in all kinds of deployments.

  • 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 have [done] some work before with the Cisco 3504 product, but the more recent Cisco 8540 Wireless Controller provides a wider range of capabilities for managing the wireless network and each individual device [and] also being able to handle more users. Unfortunately, we didn't test and deploy equivalent products from other concurrent companies.

Easier configuration and advanced security features.

Return on Investment

Cisco 8540 Wireless Controller

  • Network engineers find it easier to [manage] high-stress levels since they're more reliable and robust.
  • Their initial cost is very high compared to other router providers, such as Juniper.
  • Their hardware dependability can be a big drawback if you run on a budget.

  • Our total cost for providing guest wifi dropped significantly from a prior solution even while adding much needed security features.
