Wireless network management solution

We are running a pilot project to deploy a centralize wireless solution for our campus. The pilot consists of only about 20 Cisco1200 access points. We are in need of Network Management solution to manage these access points. The NMS would have to pretty much behave like what we already have into place for our wired networks such as: alerts on snmp traps, thresholds settings, data capture, administration,etc, in general be able to proactively check possible shortcomings on the infrastructure and help to troubleshoot problems. Once we fully deploy the centrally controlled wireless network, there could be any way from 1200 to 1500 access points, so whichever system we choose must be able to scale to these numbers.

I’m interested in knowing which wireless network management solutions are the preferred one from the audience on this forum. Your input will help me to narrow down possible options.

Thanks a lot for any information.


Re: Wireless network management solution

I would suggest that you go for the WLSE. CiscoWorks WLSE is a centralized, systems-level application for managing and controlling an entire Cisco Aironet WLAN infrastructure. For more information on this read
