According to the The Software release bulletin


We just purchased a 4404 controller. The document above states 4404 controllers have the capability to be upgraded to the new 6.0 software which supports Office extend. Does anyone have any idea whether it will be possible to purchase a wplus (wireless plus) license to enable office extend on a 4404 controller?

Office Extend is not an supported Feature on 440x, it works only with the 5500 Next Generation Controller. Background is i.a., that only these Controllers supports Both Data and Control Traffic Encryption in the CAPWAP Tunnel. Regards, Michael

Regarding Office Extend is a new "feature" with the new 5508 controller running the new IOS, 6.X and Office Extend license. No one as yet knows if the Office Extend feature will be extended to the WLC200/2100, 4400 or the WiSM. I am suspecting that because Office Extend is a license feature, I have no doubt that this will be exclusive to the 5508.

Because the 5508 can AP support license can support 25, 50, 100 and 250, anticipate the End-Of-Sale announcement of the WLC 2100 and the WLC 4400.
