Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers

WLC is used regionally across the organization. We have used DIA for guest users to optimize traffic across WAN. This is a recent implementation. This has also helped cloud and SAAS implementation and usage across a particular business unit that is more inclined towards cloud implementation. New wireless technology will only enhance the user experience across the firm.


  • Regional implementation.
  • AP management is one feature of LWAPP that is a huge departure from previous ways of doing things.
  • WLC has a higher processing capability than an individual AP, which allows you to offer an even higher level of coordination among multiple WLCs.
  • LWAPP offers a separation between the existent LAN traffic and the "new" wireless traffic, it simplifies network planning and traffic handling.


  • Usage of HA SKU WLC and the way it is considered. More benefits should be given to customers.
  • Configuration options can be a bit confusing.
  • Web UI, performance management, and traffic management are not easy.
  • Integration with ISE is extremely useful; Great ROI and worth the money spent.
Suited for all kinds of implementation in organizations. Should be well designed to get most of it. A smaller institution could use a Meraki kind of solution. This needs to be managed properly across the organization.
