Migrating Your Controller-based WLAN to Mojo Cloud
Wireless LAN (WLAN) controllers have been prevalent in large enterprise and campus Wi-Fi deployments for over a decade. But controller-based architectures have not changed much since the time they were invented. In today’s world, where the density and quantity of Wi-Fi networks has exploded, Wi-Fi has moved from being a convenience to the exclusive way of accessing the network, and the diversity of clients and applications running on Wi-Fi has increased, controller-based architectures have serious shortcomings: complex management, high maintenance overhead, proprietary hardware, single point of failure, limited scalability and high cost.
The first generation of controller-less and cloud-based Wi-Fi solutions served small-to-medium and distributed enterprises but they did not meet the needs of large enterprise and campus deployments. Their poor performance, unreliability, limited scalability, lack of features, and the requirement of fundamental changes to the underlying network design kept large enterprises and higher education institutes from adopting controller-less and cloud Wi-Fi solutions.
