Feature Comparison: MM vs. Master-Standby vs. VMC

Hi airheads-community,


is there a comparison between all possible wifi design options? What features are available/absent in which deployment?


I can think of the following designs:

  • Mobility Master with Hardware MCs
  • Mobility Master with VMCs
  • Hardware Controllers as Master/Standby
  • Virtual Controller

Thank you in advance.

Thank you.


I've read the Fundamentals Guide and it's quite informing. But I was looking for an overview matrix for customers to quickly grasp the benefits of specific deployment types.
