Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers

We currently use our Wireless LAN Controllers to manage AP's across multiple sites. We heavily rely on FlexConnect which is an awesome way to reduce our carbon presence within some of our sites, and the presence of Mobility Express opens up other opportunities.

The decision to transition down such a path, to begin with, was simple - we needed consolidated management of the entire wireless infrastructure from a single point. I have not regretted making this decision since we first deployed the solution.
  • Central Management - The central management console is actually very easy to use and facilitate.
  • Dashboard - Reporting has improved since they introduced the dashboard two years ago I believe, definitely a good move by Cisco.
  • Best Practice Auto-Config - This is probably the coolest thing ever. They have some best practice "one-click" configuration templates built into the new code which are easy and simple to use.
  • More analytics are always better.
  • Build integration and migration for Cisco DNA.
  • The cost is high and can deter investment, but if you sell the idea on the ROI, one can easily get such a solution approved.
  • There has to be a better model for schools as the pricing doesn't always fit low budget institutions.
I would never consider changing this environment. It makes my work easy and I would not recommend anyone to try anything else.
It is suited for all situations as long as people want to manage their wireless network with ease.
