The Cisco Catalyst 6500 Series/7600 Series Wireless Services Module (WiSM) provides unparalleled security, mobility, redundancy, and ease of use for business-critical wireless LANs (WLANs). It allows network managers and operators to control and manage their wireless networks easily.
As a member of the Cisco Wireless LAN Controller family, the Cisco WiSM works in conjunction with Cisco Aironet access points, and the Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS) to support mission-critical wireless data, voice, and video applications. As a key component of Cisco Unified Wireless Network for the enterprise, and Cisco ServiceMesh for service providers, the Cisco WiSM provides real-time communication between access points and other wireless LAN controllers to deliver a secure, end-to-end wireless solution.
Because the Cisco WiSM supports 802.11a/b/g and the IEEE 802.11n draft 2.0 standard, organizations can deploy the solution that best meets their individual requirements. Organizations can offer robust coverage with 802.11 a/b/g or deliver greater performance with 5x the throughput and unprecedented reliability using 802.11n as part of an enterprise, or service provider wireless solution.
