IAP & Mobility Controller

Hello,

 

I have an installation of wifi network using 10 Alcatel-Lucent AP93 with OAW-4306G Mobility Controller. Now we want to expand the installation using Aruba IAPs. Is there a way to make the virtual controller a slave to the mobility controller (or the master). If not what would recommend as a best bractice for this type of installations.

 

Thanks.

Mixing Aruba and Alcatel APs is not supported.  It *might* work, but it is not tested and TAC would not provide support for them, really.

OK.

 

What if the mobility controller is Aruba and not Alcatel, what would you recommend ?

I know that one solution is to convert the IAPs to campus aps but due to licence limitations, itis not possible

 

NB. Alcatel-Lucent use aruba hardware (in this case 600 series) uses and software is not that different.

Same situation. May work, but not supported.

So the only choice is to use the new IAPs seperatly from the controller ?

yes, if you want a support solution that is your only choice.
