Last year we had a glut of resources. I purchased a 5508 WLC with a (50) AP license, (12) 1042 APs, and (12) 3500 APs. We already have 6 APs in the field run by a 2106.
What I would like to do is supply wireless access to all of the laptops and iphones that are corporate, and also provide guest access. At the same time, I would like to make the lives of the outside workers who maintain a VPN connection all day in the home office a bit easier with Office Extend.
So - I'm at a place where I don't know where to begin. That is an excellent place to start I think
I would like to deploy in stages - replace the current infrastructure, provide guest access, and have the remote users connected in stages. It's all about how to get started at this point.
Thanks Leo - I saw that and all the associated material.
I should have been a bit more clear. I can't sit and read a manual like that, If I took a week off to read a book I wouldn't get as much out of it as I would by taking a class and getting hands on in a lab. How about a reccomendation for a class (or two, or three!) that would impart the knowledge I need to implement what I want?
I would recommend you check out some of the Smart Business Architecture (SBA) documentation at http://www.cisco.com/go/sba/. It is straightforward documentation with lots of screenshots and easy to follow instructions to get you up and running with a wide range of Cisco products.
Based on what you have asked for (LAN WiFi, Guest Access, and Office Extend) I would check out the following documents:
