Cloud service controllers don't need Instant AP in Remote Site?

Hello. I wonder the network deployment using cloud service controllers.

If cloud service controllers(7005/7010) will be deployed in branch sites,

can I install general APs for remote service, not instant APs ?

Yes, I deploy smaller 7005/7010 controllers in branch offices for some situations (heavy Lync, etc). I do regular campus APs though since they're terminated on that controller.

Thanks.

I have another question.

When 7005/7010 controllers will be installed in Branch offices, does it need to put mobility controller in HQ?

In case of that, controllers in branch offices are operating as slave, and a controller in HQ operates as Master, is it right ? 

(Master means that it can config other controller(slave))

 

Or, If not, are 7005/7010 controllers configured by Management System(Airwave in Center) ?

Hi Jeewson!

 

That depends on your needs. If you have common configuration on the branches I'd probably use a dedicated master in a central site, make it redundant if budget allows, and configure the branchcontrollers as locals(slave).

 

Give each location their own AP-group where you specify them to terminate on the local controller in the AP system profile.

 

The other option you're mentioning is running an "all-master" deployment where each location will operate as a standalone master, they could be centrally configured through Airwave. This is a less common way to do it, I'd say personally.
