New to Aruba

Hi;

 

I am new to Aruba products but not new to wireless technology. I have deployed lots of Cisco wireless equipment but would like to learn Aruba.

 

My question is, where is the good way to start? I have not found a user guide for ArubaOS yet.

 

My test equipment is

620 Controller

Ap135

Ap93

 

First of all;

 

Do these Aps work without controller?

Can a controller work as a remote-office or local? Both?

 

What are the deployment methods??

 

For Mesh technology, Which Aps works as Mesh? Do Aps have to be Dual radio access points?

 

Where Can I find the user guide?

All of those APs require a controller

Controllers can work as remote-office and local.  The Virtual Branch Networks PDF will tell you:  http://www.arubanetworks.com/wp-content/uploads/VBN_VRD.pdf

 

All APs can work as mesh.  They do not have to be dual radio.

 

The user guide is at http://support.arubanetworks.com/  Click on Documentation.
