Controller AP & RAP Limits

i have a Controller ( 3200 )

currently carrying the maximum APs : 32 AP

i will get LIC for RAPs  ( 128 RAP )

is there any limitation that this Cobtroller will carry both  32*AP & 128 RAP  simultaneously ?

Re: Controller AP & RAP Limits

Unfortunatetly you can't run it simultaneously 

For 4 RAPs licenses  you will be using 1 Campus AP license.

Re: Controller AP & RAP Limits

@Telnet-1;   vfabian is right.   You cannot simultaneously use 128 RAPs and 32 CAPs.    You can have all sorts of combinations of both RAPs and Campus APs, but you cannot exceed the platform limit; in this case the 32 APs .    You'd need to do some math, but for simplicity, consider each RAP 1/4 of a Campus AP.    For example, you could have 30 Campus APs and 8 RAPs.   Or 20 Campus APs and 48 RAPs.   etc......

Re: Controller AP & RAP Limits

Ok , i understood Limits now 

what about licenses ?

let's assume i will have 4 AP + 4 RAP  , will i need  4* AP LIC  + 1* AP LIC  ......   or   4* AP LIC   + 4* RAP LIC    .......   or  4*AP LIC + 1* AP LIC  +  4* RAP LIC   ?

Re: Controller AP & RAP Limits

 

So if you get 4 AP licenses you will get 16 RAPs licenses

Re: Controller AP & RAP Limits

The 4:1 ratio is for sizing/capacity only.    For licensing, you need an AP license for every AP, whether it is a campus, remote, or mesh AP.  Your example of 4 AP + 4 RAPs would require a total of 8 AP licenses.

Hi clembo ,

You said : 

"Your example of 4 AP + 4 RAPs would require a total of 8 AP licenses."

does this mean i will need no RAP LIC at all ?
