Cisco Catalyst 9800-L Wireless Controller Data Sheet

The Cisco Catalyst 9800-L is a fix wireless controller for small and medium-sized businesses that includes automatic software updates. Built from the bottom up for intent-based networking, the Cisco Catalyst 9800-L combines Cisco IOS XE Software and Cisco RF quality to provide a best-in-class wireless experience for your growing organization. The Cisco Catalyst 9800-L is feature-rich and enterprise-ready to power your business-critical operations and transform end-user experiences.

    • This option provides flexibility in your network.
    • Hot and cold patching provides high availability and smooth software updates, ensuring clients and services remain operational during scheduled and unplanned events.
    • The Cisco Catalyst 9800-L secures the air, IT devices, and people. Wireless communications, together with Encrypted Traffic Analytics (ETA) and Software-Defined Access (SD-Access), form the strongest first line of defence. The controller includes built-in security features such as Secure Boot, runtime defenses, image signing, integrity checking, and hardware authentication. Built on a modular operating system, the controller has open and customizable APIs that allow for the automation of day-0 to day-N network operations. Model-driven streaming telemetry delivers detailed information about your network and client health.
    • Cisco DNA Center’s User Defined Network functionality provides end users with control over their own wireless network partition on a shared network. End users can then remotely and securely deploy their devices to this network. Cisco User Defined Network is ideal for university dormitories or extended hospital stays, as it provides both device security and control, allowing each user to determine who can connect to their network.
    • Cisco DNA Center’s Assurance menu now includes a new Wi-Fi 6 readiness dashboard. It will scan the network’s inventory to ensure that all devices, and clients are compatible with the latest Wi-Fi 6 standard. After upgrading, comprehensive wireless analytics will show that the Wi-Fi 6 implementation resulted in improved performance and capacity. This is a fantastic tool that will assist your team in determining where and how the wireless network should be enhanced. It will also provide information on access point distribution by protocol (802.11 ac/n/bag), wireless airtime efficiency by protocol, and detailed performance data.
    • Cisco’s Service Software Upgrade (ISSU) eliminates network downtime during software updates and upgrades. ISSU performs a comprehensive image upgrade and update while the network is still operational. The software image (or patch) is loaded onto the wireless controller while traffic forwarding remains unaffected. Throughout the update process, all access point and client sessions are preserved. With a single click, your network is instantly upgraded to the latest software.
