Mode Bridge in ArubaOs

Hello, My questions is the following.

 

I have a centralized scheme. The mode bridge allows the traffic does not reach the controller?. It is possible con AP 135 in mode AP, not instant, not RAP. Thanks

Yes...you can operate an AP135 in bridge mode.  No data traffic hits the controller.  However, the control plane (authentication, control, etc...) is centralized.

It means that traffic will not be sent to the controller? stay on the switch that has the vlans? since this is currently defined routes

Yep.The AP will become transparent and will "bridge" the clients the your sw.

Bridge is used where there is a private WAN, just to get the clients on the wired network at that location.

Yes...bridge mode is locally switching traffic.  When APs are used in bridge mode, the user VLAN and the AP VLAN are typically the same VLAN, because this model operates only on a flat Layer 2 network. In this case, the AP is handling the traffic exclusively for the user and bridging it locally instead of sending the traffic back to the mobility controller for processing.

Perfect. Other questions. bridge mode, I can work without problem with pefng. also because RAP is not recommended for MPLS? Because the mode Splitt Tunnel would be ideal.

 

Thanks

Yes...PEFNG will work fine.  You should also be able to run in Split tunnel with the 135 as well.  That isn't an issue.

Re: Mode Bridge in ArubaOs

But, this only applies in RAP mode?

Re: Mode Bridge in ArubaOs

The mode Split Tunnel only valid for RAP?
