3504 Wireless Controller

Overall Satisfaction with Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers

We have customer organizations that are very big and it is difficult to manage each Access Point with the various types of authentication methods, to overcome this problem we have suggested different types of WLCs like 3504, 5520, and 9800 series. These controllers can be used based on the customer infra size and user counts. These controllers can be integrated with various authentication apps as well.
  • Manages different models of AP
  • Various authentication Methods
  • Wireless Guest user portals
  • Support for different AP's
  • Integration with Third party AP's
  • Mesh Technology
  • Guest authentication portal
  • Maintenance cost
  • 1 time investment on WLC can add many APs, based on requirement.
Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers are used to manage the APs and these APs can be connected to the switches, based on the ap power consumption these switches will be used and they are very easy to configure. And cisco switches are more compatible with the APs like configuring the QOS, easy to identify on a switch.
