Wireless LAN - IEEE 802.11ac for Switch
Web ID: 1031138746
Mfr. Part: C1-WSSVC-WISM2-K9=
As a component of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network, this controller provides real-time communication between Cisco Aironet® access points, the Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS), the Cisco Network Control System (NCS), and the Cisco Mobility Services Engine to deliver centralized security policies, wireless intrusion prevention system (wIPS) capabilities, award-winning RF management, and quality of service (QoS). With Cisco CleanAir® technology, the WiSM2 protects 802.11ac and 802.11n performance by providing cross-network access to real-time and historic RF interference information for quick troubleshooting and resolution. The Cisco WiSM2 Controller supports Cisco Application Visibility and Control (AVC), the technology that includes the Network-Based Application Recognition 2 (NBAR-2) engine, Cisco's deep packet inspection (DPI) capability that can classify applications, apply quality of service (QoS) to either drop or mark the traffic, and prioritize business-critical applications in the network. Cisco AVC uses NetFlow Version 9 to export the flows to Cisco Prime™ Infrastructure or a third-party NetFlow Collector. The Cisco WiSM2 Controller also supports Bonjour Services Directory to enable Bonjour Services to be advertised and utilized in a separate Layer 3 network. Wireless Policy engine is a wireless profiler and policy feature on the Cisco WISM2 controller that enables profiling of wireless devices and enforcement of policies such as VLAN assignment, quality-of-service (QoS), ACL and time of day-based access. With this integrated approach to large-scale wireless networking, customers can realize significant total cost of ownership (TCO) benefits by streamlining support costs and reducing planned and unplanned network downtime.
