The WLC880 Wireless LAN Controller brings the scalability, manageability, reliability, and resiliency, of wired networks to wireless LANs. Designed for mainstream 802.11n deployment, it also offers incredible future-proofing for 802.11n access points equipped with support for three spatial streams each.

The WLC880 offers intelligent switching that combines centralized and distributed data forwarding, and may offload policy enforcement, deep packet inspection and data forwarding to access points for optimized traffic flow, reduced latency, and scalability.

The WLC880 also enables the WLAN to be extended to branch offices using AES encrypted tunnels over the Internet. This enables a simplified branch office wireless network deployment model that eliminates complexity, while leveraging the investment in existing corporate security infrastructure and policies.
