Multiple Locations

Answered Question
Aug 3rd, 2010

Not sure if this is the correct forum.....I have two sites, A and B.  Site A has the 4404 controller

and has a internal and guest WLAN configured and running.  Site A has its own Internet connection.

Site B has its own Internet connection.

Can I have the 4404 control the APs at site B and have them configured for site Bs internal and Internet

connection even though the controller is located at Site A?

I have this problem too.

Hi Jim,

Great question.  In this case, you'll likely want to deploy H-REAP Local Switching at Site B (remote site).  The LAPs at the remote site will simply need a Layer 3 route to the 4404 at Site A, and a roundtrip latency of 300ms or less.  For more information on deploying H-REAP, take a look at these great guides:

Hope this gets you on the right track!

Salma,

You're very welcome.  Glad this info helped.  Best of luck with your deployment.

I would think its premature to say HREAP would be the avenue of choice without knowing more about how the sites are connected, traffic flow, security and how the wireless will be used.

HREAP is good for remote office location, smaller deployments normally. However if you have later 3 adjacency between the location A and B just spanning the APs to controller B may be an option as well. But here again what is the connection and how will the wireless be used.
