Sorry if this sounds like a silly question. Can the RAP-3WNP (or multiple RAP-3WNP's) be configured as a standalone instant cluster? We have a project that requires a series of multiple mobile sites to be setup, for which we were planning on using 3G/4G for connectivity but I am unsure if I need to deploy a central controller somewhere or if I need to price in Airwave or similar.
Thoughts and comments are appreciated.

RAP-3s ship with IAP SW on them. As such they can be a VC or you can have multiple RAP-3s in one group. Remember, for multiple IAPs to form one group the management traffic must be in the same Vlan. No external controller is needed.
The RAP-3 does support 3G/4G. The card we support in the current release (v.3.2) is the Verizon Pantech UML 290. Make sure you are running v.3.2 as there was an issue with the UML 290 in v.3.1.
On a side note, v.3.3 should be posted to the support site in another week or so.

You mentioned support cards - that was my next question. Currently where we are (Saskatchewan, Canada) we have the choice of the following (through the various providers):
Sierra Wireless AirCard® 330U LTE
Can anyone confirm that these may be operational with the RAP-3, or should I be looking at other alternatives?
