The performance of the device is pretty good--overall above similar products available in the market. IT made it clear with respect to performance and cost of maintenance. It was also remarked on the few times it generated any kind of problems such as downtime, lack of connection, and similar mishaps that lead to frustration.

As with any system, one should think about implementing the controllers in a highly available fashion, that way if one controller is upgraded, all the Access points can be moved to the 2nd controller and then post-upgrade, the APs can be moved back to the original controller. That way little downtime can be achieved.

On the scale I am testing this WLC, the performance is amazing. No crashes, no apparent issues are there. Later when it goes to PoC testing, things will be more clear on the issues and the software stability Cisco are claiming, hopefully it will be up to the expectations. I am not going to use high availability on this platform, as PoC does not require that.
