5508 Wireless Controller

Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers

Originally we had deployed a massive rollout of Cisco access points and were managing them by hand with a ton of time spent setting them up, managing, and various other duties. This was time consuming and tedious. When Cisco showed us the Wireless LAN controllers we were easily sold. They have been rolled out across the whole company and are massive time savers!
  • Well built hardware
  • Nicely designed UI
  • Very few outages if any
  • Management for all features isnt easily discoverable
  • Lots of issues getting some remote sites (vpn) access points into the system
  • Needed to convince management of the high price tag
  • Managing everything under one pane of glass
  • Giving other IT divisions rights to make specific changes to config without affecting the important stuff
  • Saving all kinds of time in the long run
  • Frustration levels have gone way down after going to the wireless lan controller
  • You could argue money has been saved as we can keep a single lineup of AP's and corresponding wireless lan controller
  • Costs will have to go up when you start adding one of these into the mix

Yes

Would you buy Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers again?

Yes

Ok so Cisco is known for good hardware, and super stable software. This lineup is no different. You can pretty much bank on your devices staying up for as long as they have power. Throw a UPS in there and they will run years straight. This continues the tradition and gives you that warm and fuzzy feeling when you know your network will stay up.
