Different Offices Same Cluster

Hello everybody,

I have a question, I'm implementing about 30 IAP's for a company who is divided in two offices, the offices are connected using a StS VPN, is there a possibility of joining all the AP's in only one cluster?

The main idea is that employees can go from one to another office and automatically connect to the same SSID with the same permissions.

Re: Different Offices Same Cluster

If the access points cannot be in the same layer 2 network, they cannot be in the same cluster.  If you have two clusters in different layer 2 networks, you will have to synchronize the changes betweeen them manually or obtain Airwave to do that for you automatically.

 

Devices in the same cluster do exchange broadcast traffic regularly, so you do not want to have a cluster separated by a WAN, even if you can somehow put them on the same layer 2 network.

By using Airwave I can manage all the AP's like if they are in the same cluster and all users privileges can be the same no matter in what office they are?

Is not the same as Aruba Central?

You could also do the same with Central, Yes.
