The video walks you through three different methods of installing and initializing Cisco Wireless LAN Controller. We will start by using a Command Line Interface (CLI) which is known to work well and supported on all controller platforms.  With recent software releases, you also have an option to perform initialization via GUI and we will demonstrate this over both wire and wireless. This is also known as WLAN Express Setup on Cisco 2504 with best-practices and configuration optimization built-in.
