RAP : Right configuration for Branch?


I would like to have some deployment idea and help for RAP

configurtion and design for branch site.

HQ has Controller and some APs. Branch has 1 RAP connect back to

HQ controller.

At Branch site, customer have following requirement.

a) Local network access ( servers and printers )
b) Internet access ( going out from local router )
c) HQ netwrok access ( HQ server via tunnel )
d) SSID always-on for local access unless RAP reach to controller ( Internet at HQ site may down at night time )

e) Branch users traffic can be able to managed?( facebook block )

Can somebody give me some idea to fulfill this requirements?

Currently I am doing spilt-tunneling method and item (d) can't be
solved. Is there any other good solution?

Thanks in advance.

Please see the Remote Access Networks Validated Reference Design here:  http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Validated-Reference-Design/Remote-AP-Networks/ta-p/155140


(d) will only work with a Preshared Key Network.  For sites that have periodic outages to a main site,  you should consider deploying an Aruba Instant Cluster at those sites, instead:  http://www.arubanetworks.com/products/networking/aruba-instant/
