Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers

We installed a Cisco Wireless LAN Controller in the offices of a car factory in Latin America. To be able to manage more than 200 access points deployed throughout the factory from the administration to the part of the car production line. Thanks to the controller you can create a complex configuration from vlan separation for each sector to the different SSIDs that were requested by the client for internal and external use. I never had any problems with this driver as it is very complex and works very well.
  • The Clean Air feature are very useful
  • Being a very large controller, it allows the connection of many access points and does not consume much
  • Documentation from design to setup is excellent from Cisco
  • Unfortunately it is a very expensive equipment to buy
  • Great knowledge is needed to start the equipment
  • High-performance video
  • Fault tolerance and high availability
  • Supported 6000 access points and 64,000 clients in a 1RU form factor
  • Even though it is a very expensive solution, the ROI is very good for when the solution is implemented
  • Allows access control using 802.1X
  • The security that you provide is very good in the network

In the few years that I installed several Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers, I never had any hardware or software problems, the support is very complete from Cisco and the documentation on the website is very complete compared to other vendors. Based on the software, it shows that there is a lot of work since updates are constantly coming out. But at the cost level it is very expensive compared to other solutions.
