This award-winning solution is a fulfillment of Cisco Motion, a holistic approach to business mobility that combines applications, devices, and the network as the platform to deliver industry-relevant mobility while simplifying deployment and reducing the burden on IT resources.
The Cisco Unified Wireless Network is designed for corporate and branch offices, hospitals, retail stores, manufacturing sites, warehouse environments, educational institutions, financial institutions, local and national government organizations, and any other location where mobile connectivity is needed. Designed as a multiservice solution, the Cisco Unified Wireless Network supports general wireless-enabled business applications such as e-mail, voice communications, and Internet access, as well as specialized applications such as nurse call systems, inventory management, retail point-of-sale, video surveillance, and many others. To facilitate integration with mobile business processes, the Cisco Unified Wireless Network supports a variety of mobility services to enhance security, voice, guest, client and context-aware services. In addition, Cisco works with a wide variety of tested and proven technology partners to deliver an even broader range of specialized applications targeted to different industries.

Solution Components

Based on industry standards such as IEEE 802.11, the Cisco Unified Wireless Network is an integrated end-to-end solution that addresses all layers of the wireless LAN, from client devices and access points to the network infrastructure, network management, delivery of advanced wireless services, and award-winning, worldwide, 24-hour product support.
The Cisco Unified Wireless Network includes the following primary components:

Client devices: PC cards, Wi-Fi tags, and other client adapters that connect desktops, assets such as equipment or retail goods, and mobile devices to the wireless network.

– The Cisco Compatible Extensions program enables mobile client devices and Wi-Fi tags to simply and securely connect to a Cisco Unified Wireless Network for optimal performance.

– The Cisco Secure Services Client is a software supplicant that enables businesses of all sizes to deploy a single authentication framework across multiple device types to access both wired and wireless networks, delivering simplified management, robust security, and lower total cost of ownership.

Access points: Cisco Aironet® access points and bridges that connect wireless devices to wired networks, providing ubiquitous network access.

Network unification components: A variety of platforms, such as wireless LAN controllers, integrated switches, and routers, that deliver comprehensive wireless network services such as dynamic RF management and self-configuration.

Network management tools: Cost-effective tools that provide a complete view of the wireless LAN network for easier planning, configuration, and management from a central location.

Mobility services: An open mobility services platform delivers mobility services to enable mobile business applications.

– Context-Aware mobility: Provide real-time contextual information about mobile assets to help increase an organizations' efficiency and support immediate access to information such as location, temperature, and device availability to help businesses make informed decisions.

– Adaptive wIPS: Protect the wired and wireless network from wireless threats through comprehensive detection and mitigation of known and unknown threats and proactive threat prevention that is designed into the network.

Manageable and Scalable

Award-winning Cisco management allows from several to thousands of local and remote access points to be configured and monitored simply and efficiently. Automatic recognition of new access points results in correct configuration, helping to ensure that remote offices are applying the same security protocols as large campuses. Centralized management relieves network administrators of once-manual tasks, enabling the wireless network to scale as quickly as is needed.

Available and Reliable

Cisco automatic RF management supports wireless LAN controller clustering for redundancy and intelligent network monitoring to help ensure a highly available wireless LAN. Upon failure of an access point, the adjacent access points automatically compensate, increasing their radio power to reduce or eliminate coverage holes. To provide a better end-user experience, the Cisco Unified Wireless Network uses an intelligent algorithm that associates new users with the best access point based on a combination of traffic load and signal strength.

Investment Protection

Many Cisco customers have purchased Cisco Aironet access points that operate autonomously, that is, without benefit of centralized management from a Cisco Wireless LAN Controller and the Cisco Unified Wireless Network feature set. To protect customers' investment, autonomous (also called standalone) Aironet access points can be upgraded via a free software upgrade to support the Lightweight Access Point Protocol (LWAPP), which is needed for the unified solution. Autonomous access points are based on Cisco IOS ® Software and may be upgraded in the field to lightweight mode, using Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS) or manually, thereby providing customers with a smooth path from core to unified features.
The Cisco Unified Wireless Network feature set is delivered by lightweight access points, wireless LAN controllers, and the Cisco WCS management solution and delivers the most comprehensive set of capabilities in the industry, including guest access, wireless intrusion detection and intrusion prevention, scalable Layer 3 roaming, and context-aware services. See "Why Migrate to Wireless Network?" for more details.

Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers

As components of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network, Cisco wireless LAN controllers present network administrators with the visibility and control necessary to effectively and securely manage business-class WLANs and work with the Cisco Mobility Services Engine (MSE) and Cisco WCS to deliver mobility services.
The main differences between Cisco wireless LAN controllers are in their capacities and form factors. All the Cisco wireless LAN controllers used in the Cisco Unified Wireless Network architecture offer the features described in Table 3.

Table 3. Features and Benefits of Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers

Features

Benefits

Scalability

Scalable architecture provides business-critical wireless services for locations of all sizes.

Integrated Radio Resource Management (RRM)

Creates an intelligent RF control plane for self-configuration, self-healing, and self-optimization.

Zero-configuration deployment

The system can be deployed without the need to modify existing routing and switching infrastructures, and without configuring access points.

Multilayered security

Flexible security policies adapt to changing corporate security needs. Intrusion detection, location, and containment preserve the integrity of wireless networks and protect sensitive corporate information.

Mobility management

Intersubnet roaming without special client software facilitates device management. No changes to core routing infrastructure makes roaming easy.

Reliability

Automated recovery from lightweight access point and wireless LAN controller failures maximizes the availability of the wireless network.

Intuitive management interfaces

Better visibility and control of the air space reduces operational costs.

Cisco Mobility Services

The Cisco 3300 Series Mobility Services Engine (MSE) is an open platform that provides a new approach for the delivery of mobility services to enable mobile business applications. A combination of hardware and software, the Mobility Services Engine is an appliance-based solution that supports a suite of Cisco Mobility Services to provide centralized and scalable service delivery. Cisco Mobility Services are a set of value-added network services that consolidate intelligence from various points in the network to enable and optimize the delivery of business mobility applications. The Cisco Context-Aware Mobility software is a mobility service and integrates with the Cisco Unified Wireless Network to capture and integrate into business processes detailed contextual information such as location, temperature, availability, and applications used.
Although the MSE and context-aware mobility software are recommended, the Cisco Wireless Location Appliance is an alternate option for simultaneously tracking Wi-Fi devices from within the WLAN infrastructure.
