WLC 8510 Time Based ACL Support

Unanswered Question
Nov 9th, 2014
User Badges:


I see something like this in the Data Sheet of 8510 "A wireless policy engine on the Cisco 8500 Series enables profiling of wireless devices and enforcement of policies such as VLAN assignment, QoS, access control lists (ACLs), and time-of-day- based access." I wonder if does WLC 8500 has time-based ACL support, or data sheet is talking about anything else?

Thank you for replies.

You want a straight answer or you want an answer coming out from the SALES team? 


Sales team will say "YES".  Will it be effective?  Not one bit.    You go to Security > Local Policy.  You create a Local Policy (and attached to your SSID) and determine what time/day you want specific criterea (like wireless client manufacturer).  


However, if you want what time/day you want the SSID to go down or UP, then you'll need something more robust, like a Layer 3 ACL.  


If you want something like a time/day you want the radio(s) of the AP to go down/up then you need something like EnergyWise or WCS/NCS/PI.
