[It's] Used primarily by the network infrastructure team for both wired and wireless solutions. We mainly use it for monthly reporting, wireless statistics, wireless deployment planning for a 4 building campus with 1000+ users. When we have a complaint of wireless coverage issues, we can quickly determine the APs involved, and adjust any settings necessary.
  • Wireless planning mode has been very helpful when expanding to new areas in our buildings.
  • The alerting is very detailed when we have any issues on hardwired and wireless devices
  • Depth of Cisco equipment information is much deeper than we can get from SNMP queries in other management products
  • The detailed reporting capabilities greatly increase our KPI reporting for senior management
  • Wireless management is somewhat lacking in that we still need to go to our WLC for deeper changes
  • Alerting is not deeply descriptive requiring more digging
  • Wireless alerts do not give true reasons for disassociation, only that AP disassociated
Is the best tool for Cisco based hardware information, but alerting is limited

We use Cisco Prime to monitor our wireless infrastructure, backup device configurations, provide wireless analysis and predictions. It assists us in preliminary wireless access point mounting locations to provide adequate wireless coverage.
  • Great tool for troubleshooting end device connectivity issues by showing wireless stats.
  • Great tool for documenting wireless access point placements in buildings.
  • Good tool for automatically backing up device configurations
  • Limited zoom options in the wireless maps can be frustrating.
  • Reporting isn't very easy to use, especially for device inventory reports.
Well suited as a troubleshooting tool, especially for wireless. Not very well suited for reporting or health monitoring.

Cisco Prime LAN Management Solution is used in our organization to manage all the switches, router and access points we have. We have approximately 300 switches, 10 routers and almost 300 access points.
  • Alerting is good
  • Ease of management
  • Supports wide range of products that can be configured easily by SNMP
  • Topology view should be included
  • Host recognizability should be added
If your environment has Cisco AP and 5700 controller you have to (must) get Cisco Prime Infrastructure.
