    Cisco Access Points do not function with Aruba (or Alcatel Branded Aruba) controllers.   Similar is true with Aruba APs and Cisco controllers.

     

    What are you trying to accomplish by 'mixing' this equipment?  Perhaps we can bring forward some suggestions.

    Thanks for your reply...

    Yes, I want to utilize the wireless controller and use few Cisco AP's running Autonomous mode.

    However may I know what could be the proprietary that Alcatel does not allow Cisco to function in Alcatell WLC or vice versa.
