How does the Cisco MSE 3300 series differ from the Cisco Wireless Location Appliance (WLA)?

Re: MSE vs WLA

Hi,

Check out this link on CCO for more infomation:

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps9742/products_tech_note09186a00809d1529.shtml#topic5

In essence, the MSE has more comprehensive location tracking capabilities such as TDOA (Time Difference of Arrival) as well as RSSI (which the WLA supports).

However as well as location capabilities, it also provides some integration to the Cisco FMC (Fixed Mobile Convergence) solution for delivering call handoff between mobile handsets with dual GSM and WiFi support, and Wireless Intrusion capabilities when APs are deployed in monitor-only mode.

The two MSE versions differ in how many devices are supported on a single unit, with the 3310 supporting up to 2000 and the 3350 up to 18000.

Hope this helps.

Thanks

Russell

The MSE is also a more robust box capable not only of location services but also improved IPS/IDS services and context aware services. An open API is also published to allow users to leverage valued data from the MSE in their own applications.

Re: MSE vs WLA

in regards to asset tracking, 2700s had hard limit of 1500 tags, but MSE has much higher limit. You can purchase lic with different limit. It also uses aeroscout engine (for RFID) vs Cisco engine on 2700. These is a cisco engine, but only tracks 802.11 clients.
