SKU: G-42177

The Cisco AIR-WLC2106-K9 Wireless LAN Controller works in conjunction with Cisco lightweight access points and the Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS) to provide system-wide wireless LAN functions. As a component of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network, the Cisco 2106 Wireless LAN Controller presents network administrators with the visibility and control necessary to effectively and securely manage business-class WLANs and mobility services such as voice, guest access, and location services.

Small and medium-sized organisations can offer robust coverage with 802.11a/b/g, or they can deliver greater performance and reliability with five times the throughput by using 802.11n and Cisco's next-generation wireless solutions and Cisco Enterprise Wireless Mesh.

The Cisco 2106 Wireless LAN Controller supports up to six lightweight access points, making it a cost-effective solution for multi-controller architectures typical of enterprise branch deployments. It can also be used for single-controller deployments for small and medium-sized organisations.

The Cisco 2106 Wireless LAN Controller provides eight 10/100 Ethernet ports intended to support a combination of access points and redundant LAN uplinks. Two of the eight 10/100 Ethernet ports are 802.3af Power over Ethernet (PoE) and Cisco PoE enabled, rated for use with Cisco Aironet lightweight access points.
