A wireless controller is a useful management tool for WiFi wireless networks that comprise four or more stand-alone wireless access points in large premises.
The wireless controller would usually be rack-mounted in the cabinet in which the structured cabling is terminated together with the other telecommunications and internet equipment.
It would connect to the network switch which would in turn be connected to each wireless access point.
The wireless controller would enable easy management of the wireless access points in terms of security and access control and would enable common policies to be enforced across all wireless access points.
The alternative of managing each access point individually would be administratively complex and would cause service quality issues as users roamed from one access point to another.
It is usually necessary to have the wireless access points and the wireless controller supplied by the same vendor.
