IAP and Multiple Cluster Deployment

I'm a complete Aruba newbie so please forgive me if i'm asking the obvious!
I'm looking to deploy roughly 250 IAP's (IAP-215) over about 30 buildings (switch per building) in 9 clusters using Instant.
I would like all the clusters to use the same SSID, is this possible?
To deploy so many clusters does each cluster require a separate vlan or how do I achieve separate clusters?
Should I be saying to my boss we need a controller/central for such a wide and large deployment!?
Thanks in advance!

Re: IAP and Multiple Cluster Deployment



Deploying Airwave or Aruba central will serve your purpose.

When you create multiple clusters means you are creating clusters in different VLANs hence there will not be any inter IAP communication among the clusters.

If you add all the VCs in the same group in Airwave or Central you can push the same configuration all the VCs and it is the only solution for your deployment.


Hope you got some clarity on this.


Please feel free for any further query on this.
