Hi experts,

I would really appreciate it if someone can point me towards where to find the difference between local and branch controller.

Thanks in advance!

Re: Difference between local and branch controller

Branch controller has the following capabilities:
- Zero touch provisioning
- WAN Health Check / Auth survivability
- All the config will be pushed from the Master controller (7200) including VLANs , Interfaces, NTP , syslog, profiles,etc ) using Smart Branch Config
- 70xx series running 6.4.3
- Policy based routing

Local controller:
- Master pushes the config except for VLANs, Interfaces , NTP , etc those are configured locally on the local controller
- No zero touch config
- No WAN optimization features
