Cheap RTLS Lab

Hello all;

 

I an new to the Aruba enviroment. However, my employee has a well established Aruba wireless infrastructure. In 2013, I was the PM for an AeroScout RTLS implementation. However, we only have the prodution enviroment and I have no where to "play" with different integrations, configurations, etc.

 

Abscent a new project to implement a formal development/test enviroment, I would like to set up a CHEAP test enviroment of my own. It does not have to replicate the production enviroment. It just has to function.

 

From the network infrastructure side... I have found 3200-US mobility controllers on eBay for $100. There are also APs for about $20/each. I have support from AeroScout and an MSDN subscription for access to Windows Server, SQL, etc.

 

Before I invest in the hardware.... is this a viable approach? Do I need to have licenses in addition to the 3200 and APs?

 

Any advice and/or insight would be greatly appriciated.

 

Thank you

 

Jon
