If you are getting ready to deploy Cisco’s Wireless Lan Controller or have already deployed it, this book has to be in your library and when not in use, to be in a safe place to where it can always found. I have dealt with the 5500, 4400 and 2106 WLC controllers and a couple of WISM’s for good measure. I have found troubleshooting information in this book that I havent found anywhere on Cisco’s website. I have had this confirmed by a TAC engineer who knows one of the authors and he confirmed this for me. There are explanation to different error codes and debug commands that can be priceless when the need arises.
This is not a book that you will necessarily read cover to cover. It is written in such a way that you can use it to deal with a particular problem and when finished, to put it away in a safe place. It would be nice if a copy of the book was also include on CD so that it could be searched whenever you needed it without having to go find the book. It is hard to single out any one chapter. They are all great. This is a book that you wont ready just once and maybe refer to once in a while, even when you are pretty comfortable with the WLC’s, you will keep finding little nuggets of info that will help. The H-REAP, RRM and Guest Networking chapters give you good information that will definitely help explain different parts of the WLC that you will be dealing with from time to time.
If you havent already bought the book, I would appreciate it if you would click on the book at the bottom of this review and buy the book. It will help defray my costs of running this website –
