Hello,


I want to install a WLC controller on the central site and 50 Access Point on the remote site.


I have 10 remote site with 5 Access Point per site.


Each remote site is connected to the central site with lan to lan VPN (ASA 5510 at the central and ASA 5505 at the remote site).


1) the WLC must manage Different SSID and Network, is it working ?


2) Is there a lot of traffic between the Access Point and the WLC controler ? ASA 5510 is connected with Internet SDSL 2 Mb and each ASA 5505 with Internet ADSL 8 Mb (only 500 Ko max for upload)


Thanks for your help

What you need to do is setup the AP's in H-REAP mode and not local. This way the AP is locally switched and not have to tunnel the traffic back to the WLC. Anytime you have a centrally managed WLC and multiple remote sites, H-REAP should be used unless you have a big backbone back to the central site.
