WDS to WLC and FSR

Answered Question
Oct 7th, 2009

Hi,

I am looking at migrating an (inherited) small (11 AP) wireless network from WDS to LWAPP with a WLC. They have Avaya wireless phones and are using WPA-PSK for the Voice wlan.

I am concerned that if we move them to a WLC they will not benefit from the Fast Scure Roaming provided by WDS. From reading some of the documentation it seems that CCKM & PKC can be used with a WLC to provide FSR. However, this seems to require that the Client support these extensions. Whereas with WDS there seems to be no stipulation that the client needs to support these extensions.

Would someone be able to clairfy the above points?

Many Tahnks

I have this problem too.

The client had to support the extensions with WDS too. CCKM only works with CCX extensions.

To your main question, yes fast secure roaming works fine with the controllers. Just configure your security the same as you have it with the autonomous.
