Product Overview

CiscoWorks WLSE is a centralized network management solution for managing the Cisco ® Aironet ® WLAN infrastructure. As the management component of the Cisco Systems ® Distributed WLAN Solution, CiscoWorks WLSE provides comprehensive air/radio frequency (RF) and device-management capabilities in ways that simplify deployment, reduce operational complexity, and provide administrators with visibility into the WLAN. By automating several RF and device-management tasks, CiscoWorks WLSE reduces the costs and time needed for WLAN deployment, management, and security.
Table 1 describes the new features in CiscoWorks WLSE Software 2.12.

Table 1. CiscoWorks WLSE Software 2.12 New Features

Feature

Description

Zero-touch deployment

Device (access point/bridge)-specific settings such as host name, radio power, and channel can be imported into CiscoWorks WLSE via a comma-separated value (CSV) file, with unique Ethernet MAC address mapping. This allows CiscoWorks WLSE to automatically apply device-specific settings without touching each access point.

Enhancements to the Site Survey Wizard

Specific RF settings such as channel and power, as recommended by the CiscoWorks WLSE Site Survey Wizard, can be applied to devices based on a schedule.

Friendly to rogue reclassification

CiscoWorks WLSE will periodically monitor for changes in the status of rogue access points that are marked "friendly" to alert the administrator in case location or received signal strength indicator (RSSI) values change.
