With OfficeExtend Access Point (OEAP) functionality, the controller can provide mobile workers and micro-offices with convenient access to the organization’s resources. They can work safely in the organization’s network from home or in a micro-office without the need to set up VPN connections.

With this license, the controller provides up to 10 Gb/s bandwidth and supports connection with 500 access points and 10 thousand clients.

It constantly monitors the wireless network, detects occurring anomalies, unauthorized accesses, and attacks on the radio band in use. Cisco Catalyst 9800 also utilizes Cisco Trustworthy Solutions, which means that their hardware components and software are verified pre-launch. It protects against loading up non-original or modified software or using modified systems or modules.
