Product Details


The Cisco 2500 Series Wireless Controller enables systemwide wireless functions in small to medium-sized enterprises and branch offices. Designed for 802.11n performance, Cisco 2500 Series Wireless Controllers are entry-level controllers that provide real-time communication between Cisco Aironet access points to simplify the deployment and operation of wireless networks

Features & Benefits

Feature Benefits
Scalability Supports 5, 15, 25, or 50 access points
High Performance Wired-network speed and nonblocking performance for 802.11n networks
RF Management Provides both real-time and historical information about RF interference impacting network performance across controllers, via systemwide CiscoCleanAir technology integration
Comprehensive End-to-End Security
  • Offers CAPWAP-compliant Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) encryption to help ensure full-line-rate encryption between access points and controllers across remote WAN/LAN links
  • End-to-end Voice
  • Supports Unified Communications for improved collaboration through messaging, presence, and conferencing
  • Supports all Cisco Unified Communications Wireless IP Phones for cost-effective, real-time voice services
  • High-Performance Video
  • Integrates Cisco VideoStream technology as part of the Cisco medianet framework to optimize the delivery of video applications across the WLAN
  • PCI Integration
  • Part of Payment Card Industry (PCI) certified architecture, and are well-suited for retail customers who deploy transactional data applications such as scanners and kiosks
  • OfficeExtend
  • Supports corporate wireless service for mobile and remote workers with secure wired tunnels to the Cisco Aironet 600, 1130, 1140 or 3500 Series Access Points
  • Extends the corporate network to remote locations with minimal setup and maintenance requirements
  • Improves productivity and collaboration at remote site locations
  • Separate service set identifier (SSID) tunnels allow both corporate and personal Internet access
  • Reduced carbon dioxide emissions from a decrease in commuting
  • Higher employee job satisfaction from ability to work at home
  • Improves business resiliency by providing continuous, secure connectivity in the event of disasters, pandemics, or inclement weather
  • EnterpriseWireless Mesh
  • Allows access points to dynamically establish wireless connections without the need for a physical connection to the wired network
  • Available on select Cisco Aironet access points, Enterprise Wireless Mesh is ideal for warehouses, manufacturing floors, shopping centers, and any other location where extending a wired connection may prove difficult or aesthetically unappealing
  • Environmentally Responsible
  • Organizations may choose to turn off access point radios to reduce power consumption during off-peak hours
  • Mobility, security and management for IPv6 & dual-stack clients
  • Secure, reliable wireless connectivity and consistent end-user experience
  • Increased network availability by proactive blocking of known threats
  • Equips administrators for IPv6 troubleshooting, planning, client traceability from a common wired and wireless management system
