ACLs. Delivering on the One Network component of the Unified Access vision, the Cisco 5760 offers:
●
Wire-speed 60-Gbps throughput with services
●
Up to 1000 access points per controller and 72,000 access points in a cluster
●
Up to 12,000 clients per controller and 864,000 clients in a cluster
●

Cisco 5760 Wireless LAN Controller
Features
The 5760 Wireless Controller can operate in both converged access mode and centralized mode. Converged
access mode provides hierarchical network design that distributes the wireless data plane at the access layer on
®
Cisco Catalyst switches for maximum performance and scale. Converged access mode provides maximum
resiliency by constraining outages to smaller failure domains. Additionally, converged access mode delivers high
availability with access point stateful failover (access point SSO), making sure SSIDs are highly available and have
minimal effect on wireless clients. (See Tables 1 and 2.)

Feature
Benefits
High resiliency
● Converged access deployment mode provides hierarchical network design that constraints outages to
smaller failure domains, thereby providing higher resiliency. Wireless clients will recover quickly from
switch failures within the Cisco 3850 Series switch stack automatically through stateful switchover (access
point SSO).
● Cisco 5760 in centralized deployment mode (also known as local mode) supports 1+1 and N+1 resiliency.
● Multiple link aggregation (LAG) support to protect against link failures while maintaining the optimal
network connectivity.
Controller based on Cisco IOS
Software
● Proven and security hardened Cisco IOS ® Software operating system.
● Well known Cisco IOS Software CLI allows customers to use existing management tools for operations.
● Cisco’s rich NetFlow ecosystem enables customers to use reporting, monitoring, traffic analysis, and
troubleshooting tools for wireless network.

performance problems due to wireless interference.
RF management
● Provides both real-time and historical information about RF interference affecting network performance
across controllers using systemwide Cisco CleanAir technology integration.
Comprehensive end-to-end
security

Additive Capacity Upgrade Licenses
The simplified right-to-use (RTU) licensing model allows customers to buy only the required number of access
point capacity licenses and then add the licenses through a simple CLI on the controller.

The additive capacity licenses allow for the increase in access point capacity supported by the controller up to a
maximum of 1000 access points. As an example, if a controller was initially ordered with the 250 access point
support, that capacity could be later increased to up to 1000 access points by purchasing a 750 access point
additive capacity license (750 * “LIC-CT5760-1A” or “L-LIC-CT5760-1A”). The single access point adder license SKU for the 5700 Series Wireless Controller allows customers the flexibility to purchase the exact number of
licenses at a time. (See Tables 6 and 7.)

DTLS Cisco 5700 Series Wireless Controllers
Datagram Transport Layer Security (DTLS) is required to encrypt the data plane traffic. If a customer chooses the
software option “SW5760K9-xxxx” (for example, SW5760K9-32SE), DTLS data encryption is enabled by default.
Customers planning to install this device physically in Russia must order the controller with DTLS disabled by
choosing the DTLS disabled software version (for example, SW5760LPE-K9-32SE). Consult your local government
regulations to make sure that data DTLS encryption is permitted.
