Security Features of Wireless Controller

The AIR-AP1702I-B-WLC Cisco 2504 Ceiling Mountable Wireless Controller is a network device that is used to manage and control wireless access points in a network. Security is an important aspect of wireless networking, and the AIR-AP1702I-B-WLC comes equipped with a number of security features to ensure the protection of the wireless network.

Some of the security features of the AIR-AP1702I-B-WLC include:

  • WPA2 Encryption - The device supports the latest WPA2 encryption standard, which is designed to provide secure wireless communications by encrypting data transmitted over the wireless network.
  • Access Control - The device allows network administrators to control access to the wireless network by creating access control lists (ACLs). These ACLs can be used to restrict access to specific devices or users.
  • Rogue AP Detection - The device is capable of detecting rogue access points that may have been installed by an unauthorized user, and can take appropriate actions to prevent these rogue access points from compromising the security of the wireless network.
  • Guest Access - The device provides support for secure guest access, allowing guests to access the network with limited access and without compromising the security of the network.
  • Firewall Protection - The device can be configured to provide firewall protection for the wireless network, helping to prevent unauthorized access and data theft.
  • Intrusion Detection and Prevention - The device can detect and prevent intrusions into the wireless network, helping to protect the network from unauthorized access and data theft.
  • VLAN Support - The device supports the use of Virtual Local Area Networks (VLANs), which can be used to segment the network and improve security by restricting access to specific parts of the network.

License Management of Wireless Controller

The AIR-AP1702I-B-WLC is a Cisco wireless access point that is designed to work with a Cisco Wireless LAN Controller (WLC) such as the Cisco 2504. The WLC provides centralized management and control for multiple access points, allowing network administrators to easily configure, monitor, and troubleshoot their wireless networks.

License management is an important aspect of the Cisco Wireless Controller, as it determines the number of access points that can be connected to the controller. The Cisco 2504 WLC supports up to 50 access points, and the number of access points that can be connected to the controller is determined by the type of license that is installed on the WLC.

There are two types of licenses that can be used with the Cisco 2504 WLC:

  • Permanent licenses: These are perpetual licenses that do not expire and provide support for a fixed number of access points. Once a permanent license is installed on the WLC, it remains valid for the life of the controller.
  • Evaluation licenses: These are temporary licenses that are provided for a limited time and enable network administrators to test the functionality of the WLC with a specific number of access points. Evaluation licenses typically expire after 60 days.

To manage licenses on the Cisco 2504 WLC, network administrators can use the web-based interface of the controller. The interface allows administrators to view information about the licenses that are currently installed, including the license type, the number of access points that are supported, and the expiration date (if applicable). Additionally, administrators can install and activate new licenses, renew existing licenses, or deactivate licenses that are no longer needed.

Configuring and Troubleshooting Mesh Networking

The AIR-AP1702I-B-WLC is a wireless access point that can be controlled by the Cisco 2504 wireless LAN controller. It is designed to be ceiling mounted and provides reliable and high-speed wireless connectivity for users.

Mesh networking is a type of wireless networking that allows access points to communicate with each other to create a network that can cover a larger area. With mesh networking, access points are not directly connected to the main network, but instead, they communicate with each other to extend the network.

To configure and troubleshoot mesh networking on the Cisco 2504 wireless LAN controller, follow these steps:

  • Enable Mesh Networking on the Controller: Go to the Wireless tab in the web interface of the controller and select Mesh. Check the box that says "Enable Mesh Networking."
  • Configure the Mesh Access Point: Set up the mesh access point as a regular access point and connect it to the controller.
  • Add the Mesh Access Point to the Mesh Network: In the web interface of the controller, go to the Mesh tab and click on Add. Select the mesh access point from the list and click Add.
  • Configure the Mesh Link: In the web interface of the controller, go to the Mesh tab and select the mesh access point. Configure the Mesh Link parameters, including the Mesh ID, Radio Mode, and Encryption.
  • Troubleshoot Mesh Networking: If there are issues with the mesh network, check the signal strength and quality of the mesh link. Ensure that the mesh access points are within range of each other and that there are no obstructions. If the issue persists, check the configuration of the mesh access points and the controller.

In conclusion, the AIR-AP1702I-B-WLC Cisco 2504 Ceiling Mountable Wireless Controller can be used to configure and troubleshoot mesh networking. By following the steps outlined above, network administrators can easily set up and maintain a reliable and high-speed wireless mesh network.

About Refurbished Products

Refurbished products are typically refurbished by an Original Manufacturer or an affiliate of the manufacturer or 3rd party facility. This product may have minor blemishes due to normal product usage and doesn't necessarily come with documentation and software unless indicated, but has been well tested and generally has never had any defects.

A wireless network connection allows users to connect their server, computer, or mobile phone networks without the use of any kind of wire cables.

Using a wireless network, enterprises and private owners are able to avoid the expensive and strenuous process of installing cables. There is no need for wired devices between equipment in different locations and into the buildings.

Wireless network router, for example, allows for simultaneous connection sharing between various wireless accessories for a better performance experience. Wireless networks make use of radio waves to allow devices to connect. They can connect devices such as laptops, mobile phones, and smart televisions to the internet or other applications.

When users have their wireless devices connected to Wi-Fi hotspots in public places, the connection remains established to that particular business network. While installing a new wireless networking device in homes or offices, users must consider several things. One of the most important ones is the unit's compatibility with other wireless accessories

Wireless Networking Devices

Fast and reliable internet connectivity is guaranteed when users pick the right set of networking devices for home and office networks. Wireless devices come in different varieties. These different types of networking devices only function to suit users' connectivity requirements. Wireless routers connect devices to the internet for high-quality streaming and surfing. They also improve users' streaming experience and other internet activities.

In most cases, wireless networking devices help users get their work done easily with lesser stress. They ensure fast and reliable internet connectivity at all times.

You can choose the right device for your needs from a wide selection of AllHDD wireless devices. We have new and refurbished devices like 1 to 8-port interface cards, external 3G and 4G modems, wireless access points with the speed range from 11MBps up to 5.2GBps and everything in between.

Main Types of Wireless Networks

There are four main types of wireless networks:

Wireless Local Area Network (LAN)

This type of network links two or more devices using a wireless connection method. It provides a connection via access points to a wider internet. Wi-Fi is the most commonly known and used wireless LAN type.

A local-area network is one that exists at a single location—an office building, for instance. LANs can be used to connect a wide array of accessories, such as scanners, printers, and even data storage devices.

The known components of LANs include switches, access points, routers, firewalls, and Ethernet cables.

Wireless Metropolitan Area Networks (MAN)

A metropolitan-area network is one that spreads across a city, small geographical area, business area, or even college campus. One distinguishing factor that differentiates MANs from LANs is the coverage capacity or size. LANs usually provide a network for a building or specific area.

While MANs, on the other hand, cover several square miles depending on the desires and requirements of the organization using it. Large-scale companies often obtain MANs to level up with their needs.

This happens most especially in situations whereby a company has a spacious organization. Then, they have the need to manage important components such as climate control and electrical systems.

Wireless Wide Area Network (WAN)

A wide-area network covers an incredibly vast area. It can be a whole city, an entire state, or even a country. The internet everyone uses today is an apt example of WAN access. Just like the internet, a WAN consists of smaller networks, such as LANs or MANs.

The cellular service we get on our mobile devices today is the most commonly known example of wireless Wide Area Networks. It is always available everywhere we go within the country.

Wireless Personal Area Network (PAN)

Personal-area networks consist of a network mainly concentrated around the devices of a single person in a particular location.

A PAN could have a mobile phone, computer, video game console, or other auxiliary devices. They are regular home devices and small office devices. A well-known example of a wireless PAN is Bluetooth.
