Cisco Wireless Terminology

Customer is looking for a document explaining all Wireless terminology form Cisco

example:

•Lightweight access point—An access point running software that makes the access point work with the controllers

•LWAPP—Lightweight Access Point Protocol. An IETF draft protocol used in the Cisco Centralized WLAN Architecture implementations. LWAPP defines both control and data encapsulation formats used in the Cisco Centralized WLAN Architecture

•MIC—Manufacturing Installed Certificate, required to secure communications between lightweight access points and controllers

•SSC—Self-Signed Certificate. Access points that do not contain a MIC (such as autonomous access points upgraded to lightweight mode) automatically create a self-signed certificate.

•WCS—Cisco Wireless Control System. Management software that manages the controllers and access points on your wireless LAN. Also provides advanced management features such as location-based services.

Thanks,

Colm
