Cross Vendor AP to Controllers

I got ask a random question that I not 100% sure about the answer. One of my co-workers has a controller from one vendor and a light-weight AP from another. He is wondering if it is possible for them to work together. My instinct is no, but I'm not entirely sure. I know there are standards, but is it something that can be used between different vendors?

Cross Vendor AP to Controllers

No. Each Vendor uses it's own protocol to connect AP -- Controllers at this time.

In the future, inter-vendor communications may be possible if the vendors all adopt a common communication protocol... that idea has been years upon years in the discussion phase with no one actually pursuing it significantly/to conclusion.
