Can you use 1 x IAP-225 as a controller for 3xAP-225s (standard campus APs)?

We need to deploy a little office WLAN and someone accidentally bought 3 x AP-225s without a controller.

 

Rather than buy a controller, can we just buy an IAP-225 and use the 1 x IAP-225 as a controller for the other 3xIAP-225s?

No. Campus APs (no I designation) need a mobility controller .


Thanks,
Tim

Thanks for clarifying Tim and for the fast response.

 

Can you suggest a cheap and basic controller to simply manage these 3 x AP-225s?

7005 would be your best bet. The IAP-225 can be converted to a controller AP.
