    • System Overview The Cisco 526 Wireless Express Mobility Controller (also referred to as the WLC526 or just the controller) is a network appliance that is optimized for secure transmission of data, voice, and video as part of the Cisco Mobility Express solution of the Cisco Smart Business Communications System (SBCS).
  • Page 18: The Cisco Mobility Express Solution

    In this configuration, they are managed by the controller through the CCA. Cisco 500 series access points can associate only with Cisco 500 series controllers. Because the needs Note of Cisco Mobility Express customers are different than those of enterprise customers, these access points do not operate with other controllers.
