Is there any advantage selecting WLC-

5508 over WLC- 4404 where there will not be any more than

50 access points?

I have this problem too.

Depends on what you are using.  There are functions only exclusive to the 5508 (such as OfficeExtend, etc.) that the 4400 won't do.

The 5508, being the newest-kid-on-the-block, is alot faster and can upgrade the APs more.  It also has 8 1Gb SFP ports.  Due to the extinction of the serial port of laptops, the 5508 supports USB console.

In my personal opinion, I'd go with the 5508.
