The Cisco 2500 Series Wireless Controller enables
systemwide wireless functions in small to medium-sized enterprises and branch
offices. Designed for 802.11n and 802.11ac performance, Cisco 2500 Series
Wireless Controllers are entry-level controllers that provide real-time
communications between Cisco Aironet® access points to simplify the deployment
and operation of wireless networks As a component of the Cisco Unified Wireless
Network, this controller delivers centralized security policies, wireless
intrusion prevention system (wIPS) capabilities, award-winning RF management,
and quality of service (QoS) for voice and video. Delivering 802.11ac
performance and scalability, the Cisco 2500 Series provides low total cost of
ownership and flexibility to scale as network requirements grow. The Cisco 2504
Wireless Controller supports Cisco Application Visibility and Control (AVC),
the technology that includes Cisco’s Network-Based Application Recognition 2
(NBAR-2) engine. N-BAR-2 does deep packet inspection (DPI) to classify
applications and tie into quality of service (QoS) to either drop or mark the
traffic, thereby prioritizing 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.
