CAP AND RAP

we can configure and use CAP AP like 205,215 & 225 as a RAP.

 

but what exactly is the difference between a CAP AP and RAP.

Re: CAP AND RAP

They are operating modes that can be changed by provisioning the AP.

A campus AP is designed to work in a LAN-type setting whereas a RAP is designed to traverse the internet.

Re: CAP AND RAP

By default, management traffic between AP and controller is clear text and data through GRE tunnel when control plane security is disabled. With control plane security enabled, management frames between controller and AP are sent inside ipsec.

With remote AP, by default, all traffic is sent inside ipsec.

Note: forward mode also plays a role here. Please refer our user guide from support site for more information.
