  • The Cisco Wireless LAN controller investment is sizeable, but we have found it well worth the money.
  • A solid well versed technical support team can be handy at times.
  • Cisco SmartNet is painful and can be a limiting piece for smaller organizations.

  • We have had our [Cisco Wireless LAN Controller] 5508s for a very long time now and although they are getting dated, they have earned us our money's worth with consistency, stability, and ease of use. Users have minimal wireless complaints and when they do seldom are they WLC-related.

  • Frustration levels have gone way down after going to the wireless lan controller
  • You could argue money has been saved as we can keep a single lineup of AP's and corresponding wireless lan controller
  • Costs will have to go up when you start adding one of these into the mix

  • This product is very good as ROI, its full fill organization needs as per expectations.
  • Before this product we use multiple brands for wireless connectivity and faced lot of issues, but after Cisco we (Team IT) and users (Production stations) are connected smoothly.
  • No miscommunication, no huddles. Smooth business operations affect business positively.
