The Cisco Flex 7500 Series Cloud Controller provides centralized control, management, and troubleshooting. It supports the Cisco FlexConnect solution for a lean branch network that uses access points connected to controllers in the data center over a wide area network. Data traffic from the access points is switched locally at the branch, so that in the rare event of a WAN failure at the branch, wireless clients remain connected on the network with access to local resources within the branch.
Cisco Flex 7500 Series Cloud Controllers automate wireless configuration and management functions and allow network managers to have the visibility and control needed to cost-effectively manage, secure, and optimize the performance of their branch networks. When traffic is directed to the controller in FlexConnect central switched mode, the Cisco Flex 7500 Series supports Cisco Application Visibility and Control (AVC). Cisco AVC includes the NBAR-2 engine, Cisco's deep packet inspection (DPI) capability that classifies applications, applies quality of service (QoS) to either drop or mark the traffic, and prioritizes business-critical applications in the network.
