The Corporate I?m working in, is looking at the WLC to control our 10000's of AP's and i was tasked to learn it and to be the "to go to" guy for this matter. I?m first going to test it with a AP1200 and Cisco router 1700 and a switch 29xx. from what i have read about so far (which is not a lot, working on 7 other projects)is that it only works with LWAP, all our devices are Aironet 1200 series. This project is going to cost the company $$$ but as long as we can learn this technology, money is no issue.
1- i will need to convert my AP to LWAP, do i have to do this to every AP individually or can i do it through the AP? Considering we have more than 15k AP's.
2- Can someone list me a sample step by step for a testing lab from the device (i will be using AP1200; which i will convert manually, 17xx router and wlc4402 and a switch 29xx)
3-what things i need to be concerned about when implementing this technology in our environment?
