A branch office can be defined as any location that is designated as a workspace away from the headquarters. Employees that are located at these branch offices should be able to have the same level of access to documents and services similar to those employees at the central corporate site. The size of the branch office is a deciding factor in the design and deployment of the WLAN infrastructure at the branch office.

Typical requirements for a branch office network
In the first phase of the WLAN network design, the IT staff has to decide on the specific requirements that will help them design the network.
Consideration factors in a WLAN network design coming next in part 2, stay tuned!
Hi - RAPs are mainly deployed for telecommuter users and you will not need both a 620 controller and a RAP at the same site. Can you please let us know what your requirements are for this deployment:
- small office
- wired and wireless access?
- applications - voice/video?
- employee and guest access?
Depending on your requirements, Aruba Instant may be a better fit to provide a campus WLAN network.
Can I use a 620 controller and rap 5WNs to provide wireless to small group 5 employees without having to install data center devices. I just want to provide wiless lan internet to only wireless clients.
