Product Description:

Cisco Aironet 2106 Wireless LAN Controller

The Cisco 2106 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. 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 may also be used for single controller deployments for small and medium-sized business environments. The Cisco 2106 Wireless LAN Controller provides eight Ethernet ports, two of which can provide power directly to Cisco lightweight access points.
