Can a WLC 4402-50 be upgraded to support more APs?

Unanswered Question
Apr 19th, 2010

We currently have a WLC 4402-50 license.

We're likely to add a more APs to this controller in the near future, which will bring the total numebr of APs to 58, and so I was wondering, is this just a license that we need to purchase, or do we need to replace the WLC hardware?

I hope it's a simple as buying a license and uploading a license file.

Any advice is appreciated.

Hi David,

Sorry, but you can not. The 4400 series are HARD coded and cant be expanded. For example, 4402-12, the 12 is the max. The 5508 series controllers (new ones) work with licenses.

So if you were to expand you would need to add another controller.

If you find this helpful please rate the post ...

Thanks Dave
