    • Cisco WCS Versions
      • Five families:
        • WCS-STANDARD-K9
          • Base version on a single server, support for up to 500 APs. Location is closest AP.
        • WCS-LOC-UPG-K9
          • Location version on a single server, support for up to 500 APs.
        • WCS-ENT-K9
          • Supports up to 50,000 APs, on one single or several servers.
        • WCS-WLSE-UPG-K9
          • For migration from 113X WLSE. License up to 2500 APs on a single server. Base and Location versions available.
        • AIR-WCS-DEMO-K9
          • Fully functional 30-day license. Location, single-server version. Ten APs maximum.
    • Cisco WCS Licenses
    • Cisco Spectrum Intelligence Licenses
        • WCS-ADV-K9:
          • License key for one sensor, single server. Includes location capabilities.
        • WCS-ADV-SI-SE-10:
          • License key for up to 10 sensors. Includes location capabilities. This license can be used as spare to be deployed on multiple servers.

        • Location servers
    • Summary
        • Cisco WCS is management software used to offer a single point of control for the whole wireless network.
        • It can also be used to track wireless devices and locate them on a map.
        • Several license versions exist, depending on the number of APs and Cisco WCS instances to manage.
        • Cisco WCS offers many features, such as central management, planning, or network statistics.
        • When more than 10,000 APs are to be controlled, Cisco WCS Navigator allows navigation among Cisco WCS instances.
