(1) I would like to know what is the disadvantage of using H-REAP vs Local AP (AP tunnel back to WLC)?
I have read through the documentation and my conclusion as follows:
H-REAP Pros = conserve bandwidth especially if there is local servers at that site.
H-REAP Cons - sites that are big and has many APs, we want to have roaming, we need to define H-REAP group and each WLC can only support 20 H-REAP group with each H-REAP group having 25 APs. So if i have a pair of WLC supporting regional remote sites, i may potentially run out of H-REAP gorup at the WLC.
(2) my client is considering to deploy two WLC to serve a few remote sites and want to use H-REAP for all sites (so as to standardise the deployment). Smaller remote sites has around 10 APs. Bigger remote sites have around 30-50APs.
Do u forsee any issues if we use H-REAP for all sites?
Any comments greatly appreciated.
