The Cisco Flex 7500 Series can manage wireless access points in up to 500 branch locations and allows IT managers to configure, manage, and troubleshoot up to 2000 access points and 20,000 clients from the data center. The Cisco Flex 7500 Series controller supports secure guest access, rogue detection for Payment Card Industry (PCI) compliance and in-branch (locally switched) Wi-Fi voice and video.
The Cisco Flex 7500 Series Cloud Controller provides centralized control, management, and troubleshooting. It supports the Cisco FlexConnect solution for a lean branch network using access points connected to controllers in the data center over a wide area network. Data traffic from the access points are switched locally at the branch; so in the rare event of a WAN failure at the branch, the wireless clients remain connected on the network with access to local resources within the branch.
The Cisco Flex 7500 Series Cloud Controllers automate wireless configuration and management functions and allows network managers to have the visibility and control needed to cost-effectively manage, secure, and optimize the performance of their branch networks. As a component of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network, this controller provides real-time communication between Cisco Aironet® access points, the Cisco Wireless Control System (WCS), and the Cisco Mobility Services Engine, and is interoperable with other Cisco controllers. With integrated Cisco CleanAir technology, the Cisco Flex 7500 Series provides the industry's only self-healing and self-optimizing wireless network for branches.
