BC systems is a 60 employee company and the Cisco Catalyst 9800-40 Wireless Controller meets all of our wireless requirements. This controller provides fast data transfer over a reliable wireless connection. We formerly used Linksys wireless and have found the upgrade to Cisco to be long overdue. We have not experienced any significant issues with the hardware. The module was relatively easy to configure, and we were up and running in a few hours.
- Fast reliable data transfer. We have not experienced dropout.

- Price of the hardware and licensing usually has room for improvement.
The Cisco Catalyst 9800-40 [Wireless] Controller is able to handle all of our wireless needs with only some minor support hardware. We were looking for a higher level of service that we could have gotten with Linksys. I am very happy that we went with Cisco, the improvement has made my work more efficient.
No other Cisco products have been integrated with the Catalyst 9800-40 Wireless Controller at this time.

The interface is user friendly and intuitive which made it easy to get up and running in a few hours. I was not difficult to enable similar policies we deployed in our last system, and additionally increase our level of control within the network. The level of detail the Cisco controller allows when configuring policies is greater than I have observed in competitors products.
