Overall Satisfaction with Cisco 5520 Wireless Controller

We use the Cisco 5520 Wireless Controller to manage all of our wireless access points throughout all of our buildings. They are both indoor and outdoor setup access points. The system is used throughout the entire organization. It addressed both managing access points independently as well as creating a guest WiFi that does not interfere with our business data flowing over the Wifi for our business applications.
  • Ease of setup for each new access point
  • Managing updates for existing access points
  • Ability out of the box to handle over 100 AP's would be great
  • A full featured dashboard
  • Reduced AP management
  • Require less travel to repair AP's which in the past were failing
