    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.
