Maximum amount of H-REAP AP's

Answered Question

Hi,

I recall H-REAP could only support three (3) AP's at a remote site. Is that still the case? We have a remote site with three (3) AP's that hang off a WLC in a main site, but we need to add a few more. I just want to make sure a WLC is needed before we proceed. Thanks.

Hi John,


Good news!


The support for the number of H-Reap AP's increased to 8 in the WLC 4.0.206.0 Release :)


These additional changes are available in controller software release 4.0.206.0:


•Client roaming with multicast packets is now supported.


•Up to 10 access points can be concurrently upgraded from the controller.


•***Hybrid REAP can now be used with up to eight access points.


From these release notes;

Hope this helps!

Rob,


The 4.1 supports unlimited numer of H-REAP ap's. I have some sites that have 40+ H-REAP ap's with no issues.

Prior to the 4.1 code, three H-REAP ap's were supported. Now this number might not be hard set, but might be TAC's supported number.
