5508 Wireless Controller

Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers

It is used in our company for providing wifi connectivity in a warehouse for parts pickers. It is also used to connect approx. 600 wireless devices on different segments of the network. We are using this equipment for over 2 years, no major issues encountered during deployment and day to day use, management is simple, and Mac address filtering also works well.
  • Simple to deploy, and use.
  • Rouge devices mitigation.
  • Multiple Ssids provision.
  • Frequently update features and security updates.
  • Grahical user interface needs improvement.
  • Required features must be easier to access.
  • Reduced time to provide access to guests by incorporating captive portal.
  • Increased wifi coverage throughout the premises.
  • Enhanced connectivity during roaming.
The feature set was better in Cisco wireless solutions as compared to Motorola Wireless and Ubiquiti. In cost comparison, Cisco was cheaper than Motorola but Ubiquiti was even cheaper, build quality and hardware specs were also better in Cisco, and we used the D-Link product before it failed to fulfill our needs.

In locations with heavy metal construction or storage, parts warehouse, press shop, etc, we observed low network coverage as compared with cambium network equipment. Connections drop and reconnect when a metal wall came across the device and access point. The issue was resolved by adding multiple access points and reducing transmit power to avoid interference.
