Well I have read the literature and am alittle confused. Someone please sshed some light. We have small budget to get some sort of Wireless managemant solution.
We have about 80 1200 series Autonomous Access points all over the
North America, Europe, South America and Australia. The largest office may have 5 Access points. We currently authenticate with ACS.
1) We want to provide Guest access with secure VLAN.
2) Control rogue units
3) Secure the system
I understand that WLSE was designed to manage autonomis systems but is it end of life?
I don't have the funds to deploy WLC.
Can I controll the current AP with WCS ?
(I know you have to convert them to LW)
I just don't want to use a WLC and have all the traffic goto central location and then back to the Branch office to access a local server. This would generate too much WAN traffic.
I look forward to all your thoughts and suggestions.
