2500 Series Wireless controllers

Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers

We are using the Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers across the organization as a means to get all our separate access points managed with a single application. The Cisco [Wireless LAN Controllers] allows us to push updates, configurations, and changes out to all Access points at once instead of having to do these things separately which was a problem in the past.
  • Easy to upgrade access points together
  • Stable interface
  • Bug and feature updates come out continuously
  • They do cost more than the competition
  • We have run into many licensing issues on the back end
  • Bug patches updates and outages are frequent
  • Quickly push SSID changes to the whole fleet of AP's
  • Easy and painless firmware upgrades
  • Keeping the wireless budget under control
  • Has been a huge time saver when updates need to be pushed
  • Given us better overall control of the Wifi network
  • Peace of mind that your network will rarely go down

Do you think Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers delivers good value for the price?

Yes

Did Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers live up to sales and marketing promises?

Yes

Did implementation of Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers go as expected?

Yes

Would you buy Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers again?

Yes

Would quickly recommend [Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers] to a colleague or local organization if they're already invested in Cisco equipment as they may likely be able to add their existing AP's to a current controller. If they were building their network from the ground up I may recommend a higher class series of wireless LAN controllers.
