A very basic question about AP redundancy

Hi,

this could be a very simple and basic question: if I have only 1 controller and some APs connected, what happens when the controller have a fault and goes down? Can the APs in some way continue to propagate the SSID and the basic functions? Or they stop working too?

 

Thanks,

 

Massimo

Re: A very basic question about AP redundancy

Hi

 

If your AP's are normal Campus AP's, they will stop broadcasting SSID's.

If you however set them up as RAP's, you could utilize a rescue option made for RAP's, allowing them to broadcast an alternative SSID and bridge trafikk out locally to the Internet.

But as you set the AP to be a RAP, you loose som features etc.
