With the BYOD  trend accelerating, Wi-Fi  connectivity is now widely provided everywhere in offices, hotels and even schools. This significantly and quickly trend increases demand for Wi-Fi access points, which in turn lead to more provisioning and management issues for network administrators. In fact, a well-designed WLAN controller is usually a solution to relieve administrators from these problems.
