Re: number of AP a controller a support

Hi,

Good night

:smileyhappy: 

The WiredAP aint help you get what u asking for.:smileysurprised:

The WiredAP usually used to connect Aruba switch's (2500/3500) and allow them to get AAA/access roles/vlans from the main Aruba controller.

In order to controller more AP units you should consider:

  • Buy another small controller (use it as local)
  • convert your deployment from CAP to RAP (GRE to IPSEC) (GRE=up to 32 IPSEC=up to 128) - just add more pef/ap lic's

  • buy Instant AP units (use them as Virtualcontroller manged -  connected VPN ipsec to your controller)
