Max. number of WLCs per WCS

Unanswered Question
Feb 4th, 2008

Hi,

I know this is a fairly basic question but I can't find answer in WCS Q&A's etc.

I'm looking at a deployment where there will be many small sites with only 5 or 6 APs and a 2106 WLC. Each site will be in a different mobility group.

I know WCS licensing counts APs, but is there a max. number of WLCs?

Thanks, MH

I have this problem too.
