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,

    Ed

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?

Thanks,

Ed

Hey Ed,

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:

Enterprise LAN Deployment Guide (Wireless LAN section)

Teleworking Deployment Guide (Cisco OfficeExtend section)

Want some authentication then check out this guide:

LAN and WLAN 802.1X Deployment Guide

And since you bought some pretty sweet 3500s I would recomend that you check out this guide:

Wireless CleanAir Deployment Guide

There are some other guide with more Advanced Guest Wireless as well. If you are a smaller organization then checkout the Midsize docs for doing coresident LAN and Guest on the same controller.

Also we doing a major overhaul on our documents to be release in August so be aware that the format will change a little bit but the archtectire (as always with SBA) will stay the same.

Please let me know if you have any questions or comments about SBA!

     Great site and a good bit of info to start.  Miles - I have checked out those resources on a high level, and have them saved for future use!
I talked my employeer into a CBT subscription, on 2k/yr, and I've been devouring content.  It's great for spoon feeding me the info I need to get a foothold and dig in.
Thanks,
   Ed
