wIPS Deployment over WAN / HREAP

Unanswered Question

Hello everybody.

I have this  Wireless deployment :

Main Site: WLC AIR-CT5508-50-K9

                WCS 6.x for 50 APs

                 (32 ) AP 1140

02 Remote Sites :  03 AP 1140 using H-REAP

Now, my company is considering to implement a wIPS solution, so  i planned to install in the Main Site a MSE3300 and (01) AP 3500e as a wIPS AP Monitor in the remote sites,

Can somebody confirm:

A) Can an AP3500 work with HREAP and as wIPS monitor AP at the same time?  or in other words, if it is possible to have  an AP wIPS monitor far away from the WLC (over the WAN)?

B) What are the requirements of WAN link if I want to install a Centralized MSE 330 Engine,which perform the wIPS solution in all the network.

Thanks in advance for any comment.

hello Jose

You need to talk with your Cisco representative. There's a feature available that has not been officialy released yet.

It will give you the oportunity to use a single LAP to use H-Reap and wIPS (dual mode).

There requirements you have seen at documents for CAPWAP traffic still aplies. So you need to take QoS and delay into consideration.
