The Cisco® Catalyst® 3750G Integrated Wireless LAN Controller combines wireless LAN controller functionality with Cisco's highest-resiliency stackable Catalyst 3750G Series Switches to deliver improved operating efficiency and unparalleled WLAN security, mobility and ease of use for business-critical wireless LANs.

CONFIGURATIONS

The Cisco Catalyst 3750G Integrated Wireless LAN Controller includes the following configurations:

• The Cisco Catalyst WS-C3750G-24WS-S25, with 24 10/100/1000 PoE ports, 2 SFP module slots, and an integrated Cisco Wireless LAN Controller supporting up to 25 Cisco Lightweight Access Points

• The Cisco Catalyst WS-C3750G-24WS-S50, with 24 10/100/1000 PoE ports, 2 SFP module slots, and an integrated Cisco Wireless LAN Controller supporting up to 50 Cisco Lightweight Access Points

The Cisco Catalyst 3750G Integrated Wireless LAN Controller is available with the Cisco IOS ® Software IP Base image. The Cisco IOS Software IP Services image and Advanced IP Services image are also available. The IP Services image provides a richer set of enterprise-class features, including advanced hardware-based IP unicast and multicast routing; the Advanced IP Services image provides IPv6 routing (Layer 3 switching).
The Cisco Catalyst 3750G Integrated Wireless LAN Controller delivers centralized security policies, wireless intrusion prevention system (IPS) capabilities, award-winning RF management, QoS, and Layer 3 fast secure roaming for WLANs. As a core component of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network, the Cisco Catalyst 3750G Integrated Wireless LAN Controller provides the control, security, redundancy, and reliability that network managers need to scale and manage their wireless networks as easily as they scale and manage their traditional wired networks (Figure 2).
The Cisco Catalyst 3750G Integrated Wireless LAN Controller is a member of the Cisco Wireless LAN Controller family. It works in conjunction with Cisco Aironet ® lightweight access points, the Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS), and the Cisco Wireless Location Appliance to support mission-critical wireless data, voice, and video applications. It provides real-time communication between lightweight access points and other wireless LAN controllers to deliver a secure and unified wireless solution.
The Cisco Catalyst 3750G Integrated Wireless LAN Controller communicates using the emerging Lightweight Access Point Protocol (LWAPP) standard to establish secure connectivity between access points and modules across Layer 3 networks. This protocol enables the automation of important WLAN configuration and management functions for cost-effective WLAN operations. With this integrated approach to wireless networking, customers can realize significant total cost of ownership benefits by streamlining support costs and reducing planned and unplanned network downtime.
The Cisco Catalyst 3750G Integrated Wireless LAN Controller delivers secure, enterprise wireless access to midsize organizations and enterprise branch offices requiring support for up to 50 lightweight access points per switch or up to 200 access points in one logical unit.
