Overall Satisfaction with Cisco 3504 WLAN Controller

We purchased the Cisco 3504 Series Wireless LAN Controller as a direct upgrade and replacement for an older 2000 series model. It was purchased to increase our WLAN deployment and get some much-needed performance increase. We are using it at multiple sites as a way to manage, upgrade, and configure Cisco access points.
  • The user interface is faster and more responsive than the previous model.
  • Well built and sturdy hardware.
  • Included racking equipment was a nice touch.
  • This generation, the prices on these seem to have increased.
  • Cisco could do a better job of phone support.
  • Also they still seem to lack their Cisco touch when it comes to licensing.
  • We have saved countless hours not having to configure each AP individually.
  • Budgets on the WLAN side have increased due to the cost increases.
  • Smart software has made it easier to get a new tech up and running.

The 3500 series is something I would recommend to just about any business looking to manage their Cisco access points in a smoother and faster way. Rolling out a large amount of AP's in a short amount of time is probably the best part of the WLC system. As well as keeping up with a demanding workforce.
