RAP License requirement

Hi,

 

Needs some help here, new to Aruba and still confuse with license :

  1. On Aruba OS 8.4 what license is required to RAP ?
  2. On Mobility Controller, can we have more AP license than PEF License, for example i have 10 AP License and 5 PEF License. How many AP and RAP i can enable ?
  3. Whats the benefit IAP VPN ?

Re: RAP License requirement

You want to make sure you have the same amount of AP and PEF .

The RAPs use the same license as the campus Aps (AP/PEF/RFP)

The difference between RAP(Manage via MM/MC) vs IAP-VPN
RAP:
Requires a controller license
All the config is pushed from MM/MC
The RAPs terminate on the MC
You can extend L2 VLANs (reside at HQ)
No L3 distributed support

IAP-VPN
Doesn’t require a controller license (you could use PEFV to additional customization to the default config)
It can be managed via IAP local interface or AirWave (if AirWave is used then you will need an AirWave license per IAP)
The MC acts as the VPN a VPN concentrator
You can deploy it in L3 distributed (more flexible) , L3 is the recommended method (The IAP acts as the DHCP server for each site and the subnet can be extended to HQ via static routing or dynamic routing using OSPF)

You can also deploy it in L2 Centralized (extend the L2 VLANs)

Re: RAP License requirement

So IAP VPN is better cause it got flexibility to have more AP and roaming while it doesn't need controller license :D thanks Aruba

 

How do i treat client on wired side, do i make  their gateway to the VC on branch IAP ?

I think it depends on the business needs / requirements . If roaming is required then IAP-VPN cluster is a better solution vs using multiple APs as RAPs.

If the subnet/VLAN/DHCP is configured as L3-Distributed then yes
