Unanswered Question

We have a 1510 mesh network and need to add a 1522 MAP. Is this possible?

I have this problem too.

Hi Joseph,

This is not a supported configuration;

Q. Can I have a network with both Cisco Aironet 1520 and Cisco Aironet 1510 mesh access points?

A. It is possible to have a network with both the Cisco Aironet 1520 and 1510 Series mesh access points. The Cisco Aironet 1520 Series needs to be deployed as a rooftop access point and the 1510 can be deployed as a mesh access point. Both the 1510 and 1520 Series can operate in the same plant; however, the WLAN controller will require a software upgrade to allow seamless operation. The 1520 Series access point is suited to mounting on poles, buildings and lights. It is powered through local power using the Cisco Power Injector or unswitched street light power sources. The 1520 Series is more adaptable: in addition to being mounted like the 1510 Series, the 1520 Series can be strand-mounted, and powered and connected to the cable plant for backhaul of data to the head end.

Have a look at Table 3 in this doc :(

Cisco Aironet 1510 RAP with the following combination;

Cisco Aironet 1505 MAP = No

Cisco Aironet 1510 MAP = Yes

Cisco Aironet 1522 MAP = No

From this doc;

Hope this helps!

Full support between 1510 and 1520 series APs is due to arrive this quarter. I will ask the Lily Chen of the BU about ETA for you.
