Hi guys, i'm looking for a decent managed solution for wireless that offers a centralized solution for Wireless (where i can see users logged in via AD, and see all my AP's).

I am trying to cover about 5000 sq ft.

Budget is important here.  How much do you want to spend?

Check out Ubiquiti UAPs.  You can manage them all centrally and view stats, etc.

Control application downtime with dependency maps

Visualize the interdependencies between application components better with Applications Manager's automated application discovery and dependency mapping feature. Resolve performance issues faster by quickly isolating problematic components.

If you don't need 5GHz or 802.11ac I'd go with the UAP.
If you want 5GHz but don't need 802.11ac go with the UAP-PRO
If you want 802.11ac go with the UAP-AC

Thanks, how do you manage the AP's? Is there a centralized console and it does integrate with AD?

You can install management software on a PC/server.  The APs can use RADIUS (NPS on a DC).
