and Control (AVC) classifies applications using deep packet inspection
techniques with the Network-Based Application Recognition
(NBAR) engine, and provides application-level visibility
and control into Wi-Fi networks. After the applications are recognized, the AVC
feature enables you to either drop or mark the data traffic.
Using AVC, we can
detect more than 1000 applications. AVC enables you to perform real-time
analysis and create policies to reduce network congestion, costly network link
usage, and infrastructure upgrades.
AVC is supported on the
following controller platforms: Cisco 2500 Series Wireless LAN Controllers,
Cisco 5500 Series Wireless LAN Controllers, Cisco Flex 7500 Series Wireless LAN
Controllers in central switching mode, Cisco 8500 Series Wireless LAN
Controllers, and Cisco Wireless Services Module 2 (WiSM2).
