Hi Sir,

My customer has the following unified wireless guest access requirement:

- There are 2 internet links and dmz zones at two different locations, Site A and Site B

- Data centre is at Site A

- WiSM is proposed to be installed at the Cat 6500 in Site A

- Lightweight AP are distributed across Site A, Site B and other branches

- Only one anchor WLC is proposed at Site A, DMZ zone to provide guest internet access

My customer would like to load balance the guest via the two internet link at Site A and Site B but with the same SSID across all locations. Can it be done since only one anchor at Site A? How about puttting another anchor WLC at Site B, DMZ zone? But how can i establish two EoIP tunnel to two different anchor WLC from a single WiSM?

Thanks for your help

You can... but you can't control where the traffic will flow. The wlc will determine which DMZ wlc it will use. The wlc will load balance, but traffic in site A might go to site B. I currently have deployed that senerio in multiple client installations....
