Remote AP Considerations

    HI All,

    my Question about remote AP deployment , can i deploy my Aruba AP as a remote AP in LAN environment? simply controller is in the same site and live for AP

    I prefer remote AP mode to use the option of fallback because i have only single controller without redundant on site

    Thanks all in advance

    Do you have several APs in that location? If so , are you expecting users to roam between APs?



    Thank you

    Hi Ahmed,

     

    In a controller based solution tunneled mode is recommend. For redundancy  add a second controller.

     

    RAP operational mode "presistent" is only supported in bridge mode so the client traffic is route directly into the LAN on the access point interface and not passing the central firewall of the controller, therefore less secure. Bridge mode don't work if you use a captive-portal on your SSID.

     

    If you have instant (or unify) access points you can run without a pysical controller, also known as a instant solution that run a virtual controller on the AP.
