Cisco 8540 Overview

The Cisco 8500 Series Wireless Controllers are a highly scalable and flexible platform that enables mission-critical wireless networking for enterprise and service provider deployments. The Cisco 8500 Series Wireless Controllers provide centralized control, management, and troubleshooting for enterprise and service provider deployments. The 8500 Series offers flexibility to support multiple deployment modes in the same controller: for example, centralized mode for campus, Cisco FlexConnect™ mode for lean branches managed over the WAN, and mesh (bridge) mode for deployments where full Ethernet cabling is unavailable. The Cisco 8500 Series Wireless Controllers support Cisco Application Visibility and Control (AVC). Cisco AVC includes the Network-Based Application Recognition 2 (NBAR-2) engine, Cisco’s deep packet inspection (DPI) capability, which classifies applications, applies quality of service (QoS) settings to either drop or mark the traffic, and prioritizes 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.
