    Default Cisco AIR-CT2504-5-K9 instead of 2100

    I see people recommending at least 2100 as a Wireless Lan controller.

    Would Cisco AIR-CT2504-5-K9 be good enough for CCNA wireless purpose? and a couple of APs?

    Thanks.

    From what I've gathered, if you're stopping with a CCNA-Wireless I wouldn't get any equipment - unless you just want to. I don't think it's necessary for the test.

    I wanted to get WLC-2504 regardless. I might even go for CCNP I guess.

    The CT2504-5 would be recommended over the 2100 if you can pony up for it. The 2504 now support LAG, 802.11AC, 802.11r (FT), newer AP's, and is still under support if you want newer features down the line. I'm sure there is more improvements the 2504 has over the 2100's.

    You can get by with the 2100 for CCNA wireless, but if you ever work in the field and deploy Cisco wireless I would highly recommend the CT2504 at a minimum for lab environments.
