Mesh Links with IAP

I'm a bit rusty with my Aruba skills and as far as Instant goes my experience has been limited to a single IAP-225 with cloud for my home office but I'm looking to expand out coverage from my office to my whole house. Currently I have multiple networks running across multiple APs all made by multiple vendors for different purposes. Basically, I used whatever I could get my hands on to fit a need.


I'm adding a workbench in my garage for all the hardware tinkering I do and while my computer can get a (barely) usable connection, nothing smaller can so I want to fill the gap. As I said, I have an IAP-225 and am looking for something small to connect back if possible and seeing as I rent, running a cable isn't my first choice. On top of that, adding the capability to put a switch on the garage side of the connection would work even better for some of the projects I work on that would require it.


Is meshing supported in IAP? If so, is it universal across all the access points or only specific models? If not, what would I need to get there?
