IAP 105 and AP135

I'm a newbie to Aruba products, so apologize for the silly question. We have a remote site where I'd like to take advantage of the radio technology of the ap135, but really don't need a full on controller. I want to preserve device association and roaming. Can I use a IAP105 as a controller to manage 4, AP135's?  Is my only choice to use a 620 or all IAP's in order to preserve device association and roaming?

Re: IAP 105 and AP135

You can use the Aruba Instant product with 4 IAPs - one of them acts as a virtual controller to manage the Instant network.

 

What clients are in use at your site and are you referring to layer 2 (all clients have IP addresses in the same subnet across roams) or layer 3 roaming (across subnets)?

I realize I can use 4 IAP's together, but can I have 1 or 2 IAP's and manage an additional 4, ap135 at the same location? Can they coexist?

 

The clients would be in the same layer network with the same IP address space.

 

Thanks

All the APs would have to be IAPs - running the Aruba Instant software. You can't manage regular campus APs from the IAP virtual controller.

 

I hope this answers your question.
