  • The controller has brought a positive impact to our clients since they can now take advantage of and sometimes monetize their WiFi networks.
  • Another plus point is the fact that you can implement advertising on your Splash Pages with the help of DNA Spaces.

  • improving WiFi speeds by up to 5x
  • Once initial setup is complete, adding more APs or even complete new sites is a matter of minutes, whereas before it was a matter of days.
  • making WiFi speeds usable, to that users can choose between LAN vs WLAN, without noticing speed differences

  • The biggest positive impact will be a year or two down the road when WiFi 6 will be more widely available by our end users. Switch refreshes will be substantially less because users will connect wirelessly by default, so [that] we won't need as many physical switch ports. This will more than pay for the wireless infrastructure.
  • Checks the box on users wanting to not hassle with a physical plug when they are in [the] office and allow them to easily move from a desk to conference room while staying connected to the network.

  • [Cisco Catalyst 9800-L Wireless Controller] with IOS-XE enable us to manage APs in our branches easily, easier than AireOS
  • ISSU enable us to do firmware upgrade with minimum downtime, a site with 24/7 activity will not be interrupted anymore
