MFD Series: Cisco’s Modular Approach for WLCs

Manon Lessard heard extensively from Cisco at Mobility Field Day. She focused on their IoT and wireless offerings in this post. At the event, they detailed their Catalyst 9800 series of controllers, all running on IOS XE. Because this code base is modular, different system components can be updated, allowing admins more control and stability, which hopefully means they update more often.

Manon Lessard is at Mobility Field Day this week, her first time participating in the event as a delegate. In this post, she runs down how she got introduced to the Field Day events and community. It started by listening to the Packet Pushers podcast, and proceeded down a rabbit hole of blogs and other IT content. She runs down the presenters and technology she’s looking forward to seeing at the event. We can’t wait to hear her thoughts after she drinks from the Mobility Field Day fire hose!
