I have to provide a cisco solution to my customers with the following requirements for the controller/Wireless Switches,
1/ 2FastE to Catalyst2950 backbone, at least 6 POE ports
2/ support at least 12 managed access points (4AP in 1st Floor; 6AP in other floor)
3/ provide various authentication methods Web Portal, VPN, MAC filtering, external LDAP service and 802.1X to the users.
4/ relay DHCP request to server; use the same IP subnet or VLAN for wireless and wired users.
5/ A managment software must be included.
My solution is quite expensive
AP : Cisco Airnet 1130AG
Controller : 4402 (with an 24 port POE switch)
software: Wireless Control System V1.0 with Server 2003 license.
I am sure there is a cheaper solution, please advice.
