- Mobility agent
This is the default mode in which a Cisco Catalyst 3850 switch ships. In this mode the switch is capable of terminating the CAPWAP tunnels from the access points and providing wireless connectivity to wireless clients. Maintaining wireless client databases and configuring and enforcing security and QoS policies for wireless clients and access points can be enforced in this mode.
- Mobility controller
In this mode, the Cisco Catalyst 3850 switch can perform all the mobility agent tasks in addition to mobility coordination, radio resource management, and Cisco CleanAir coordination within a mobility subdomain. The mobility controller mode can be enabled on the switch CLI.
The Cisco Catalyst 3850 series is a stackable Ethernet and Multigigabit Ethernet access and aggregation layer switch that provides full convergence between wired and wireless on a single platform. Cisco's Unified Access Data Plane (UADP) application-specific integrated circuit powers the switch and enables uniform wired-wireless policy enforcement, application visibility, flexibility and application optimization. This convergence is built on the resilience of an improved Cisco StackWise-480 technology. The Cisco Catalyst 3850 series switch supports full IEEE 802.3 at Power over Ethernet Plus, Cisco Universal Power over Ethernet, modular and field-replaceable network modules, RJ45 and fiber-based downlink interfaces, and redundant fans and power supplies. With high speeds, the Cisco Catalyst 3850 Multigigabit Ethernet switch supports current wireless speeds on existing cabling infrastructure.
