IAP & Mobility Controller



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.

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.

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.

Re: IAP & Mobility Controller

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

Re: IAP & Mobility Controller

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