Revised: July, 2015,

This section discusses the objectives, audience, conventions, and organization of the CT5760 Controller Deployment Guide and provides general information about Cisco IOS software documentation.

Cisco documentation and additional literature are available in a CD-ROM package, which ships with your product. The Documentation CD-ROM, a member of the Cisco Connection Family, is updated monthly. Therefore, it might be more up to date than printed documentation. To order additional copies of the Documentation CD-ROM, contact your local sales representative or call customer service. The CD-ROM package is available as a single package or as an annual subscription.


This document introduces two new controllers within the Cisco Unified Access architecture and provides general guidelines for their deployment. The purpose of this document is to:

  • Provide an overview of the new Cisco 5760 Next Generation Wireless LAN Controller and the Next Generation Catalyst 3850 Wired/Wireless Switch.
  • Provide design recommendations and deployment considerations specific to the Centralized Access deployment.


This publication is for experienced network administrators who configure and maintain Cisco wireless LAN controllers and Cisco lightweight access points.

Cisco IOS Software Documentation

In addition to the information provided in this publication, you might need to refer to the Cisco IOS documentation set. The Cisco IOS software documentation is divided into nine modules and two master indexes. Each module consists of two books: a configuration guide and a corresponding command reference. Chapters in a configuration guide describe protocols, configuration tasks, and Cisco IOS software functionality and contain comprehensive configuration examples. Chapters in a command reference provide complete command syntax information. Each configuration guide can be used in conjunction with its corresponding command reference.


This chapter describes the contents of each chapter in this document.
