Hi Amanda,

The 1300 can run with IOS (Autonomously) or as a Lightweight AP (LWAPP);

The Cisco Aironet 1300 Series is available either as part of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network or as an autonomous access point or bridge. The Cisco Unified Wireless Network is a comprehensive solution that delivers an integrated, end-to-end wired and wireless network. Using the radio and network management features of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network for simplified deployment, the Cisco Aironet 1300 Series extends the security, scalability, reliability, ease of deployment, and manageability available in wired networks to the wireless LAN. Unified access points operate with the Lightweight Access Point Protocol (LWAPP) and work in conjunction with Cisco wireless LAN controllers and the Wireless Control System (WCS). When configured with LWAPP, the Cisco Aironet 1300 Series can automatically detect the best-available Cisco wireless LAN controller and download appropriate policies and configuration information with no hands-on intervention.

Autonomous access points are based on Cisco IOS Software and may optionally operate with the CiscoWorks Wireless LAN Solution Engine (WLSE). Autonomous access points, along with the WLSE, deliver a core set of features and may be field-upgraded to take advantage of the full benefits of the Cisco Unified Wireless Network as requirements evolve. As an autonomous access point or bridge, the Cisco Aironet 1300 Series may be configured to operate as a wireless access point, bridge, or a workgroup bridge.

From this doc;

Cisco Aironet 1300 Series Outdoor Access Point/Bridge

http://www.cisco.com/en/US/products/ps5861/products_data_sheet09186a00802252e1.html

The Cisco Aironet 1300 Series Outdoor Access Point or Bridge is available with the following choices:

Operating autonomously or with a Cisco wireless LAN controller as part of a unified architecture

A Cisco Aironet 1300 Series device operating autonomously is an intelligent access point or bridge, capable of functioning as a standalone device. As an LWAPP access point, the Cisco Aironet 1300 Series works along with the Cisco wireless LAN controller to enable centralized configuration and management, application of security policies, and seamless mobility. When operating with wireless LAN controllers, Cisco Aironet 1300 Series Outdoor Access Points/Bridges function only as access points and are not capable of bridging.

When ordering look for;

AIR-BR1310G-A-K9 = Cisco IOS Software

AIR-LAP1310G-A-K9 = Cisco Lightweight Access Point Protocol
