          Ordering Information

          The Cisco 8500 Series Wireless Controllers provide centralized control, management, and troubleshooting for enterprise and service provider deployments. The 8500 series offers flexibility to support multiple deployment modes in the same controller: for example, centralized mode for campus, Cisco FlexConnect mode for lean branches managed over the WAN, and mesh (bridge) mode for deployments where full Ethernet cabling is unavailable.

          The Cisco 8500 Series Wireless Controllers support Cisco Application Visibility and Control (AVC). Cisco AVC includes the Network-Based Application Recognition 2 (NBAR-2) engine, Cisco's deep packet inspection (DPI) capability, which classifies applications, applies quality of service (QoS) settings to either drop or mark the traffic, and prioritizes business-critical applications in the network. Cisco AVC uses NetFlow Version 9 to export the flows to Cisco Prime Infrastructure or a third-party NetFlow collector.

          The Cisco 8500 series also supports Bonjour Services Directory to enable Bonjour Services to be advertised and utilized in a separate Layer 3 network. A wireless policy engine on the Cisco 8500 series enables profiling of wireless devices and enforcement of policies such as VLAN assignment, QoS, access control lists (ACLs), and time-of-day- based access.

          The Cisco 8500 series has integrated Cisco CleanAir technology, providing the industry's only self-healing and self-optimizing wireless network for branches.

          Access points continue to provide seamless services when a controller fails; provides failover to another backup controller for centralized control and management.

          SSID high availability with sub-second access point and client failover from the primary to standby controller.

          Redundant power supply helps ensure maximum availability.

          10 Gigabit Ethernet connectivity: Two 10 Gigabit Ethernet ports for redundancy.

          Allows access points to dynamically establish wireless connections without the need for a physical connection to the wired network.

          Available on select Cisco Aironet access points, Enterprise Wireless Mesh is ideal for warehouses, manufacturing floors, shopping centers, and any other location where extending a wired connection may prove difficult or aesthetically unappealing.

          Integrates Cisco VideoStream technology as part of the medianet framework to optimize the delivery of video applications across the WLAN.
