Next-generation WLAN provides expanded coverage, greater cost savings, improved security, and increased productivity gains.

Cisco IT upgraded the internal wireless LAN (WLAN) to achieve greater availability, stability, and security. The upgrade also increased the number of access points from 3100 to more than 6000 in more than 300 Cisco locations worldwide. This next-generation WLAN is based on the Cisco Unified Wireless Network solution, which combines centralized Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers with advanced access points and wireless management systems.

This next-generation WLAN case study describes solution best practices and benefits, including:

  • Higher bandwidth and broader coverage for users
  • Substantial and ongoing cost savings
  • Enhanced network security
  • Support for new wireless services
  • Continued improvements in employee productivity
