I'm trying to find out if there is a way to completel separate the control and data traffic on Cisco Light Weight Access Points. I read about REAP and H-REAP, but that only works in case of an outage where Access Point starts to operate locally.
However I want all our AP's to be able to send/receive data traffic direclty instead of going through the controller(s). Is Cisco capable to doing that?
If you configure the WLAN for Local Switching, and the AP for HREAP, it always puts the traffic on the wire directly. Even if the AP is currently connected to the WLC.
The difference, is that an HREAP AP can continue to pass traffic if the WLC goes down, where a local AP will fail.
