Cisco does have a product

Cisco does have a product like Aruba Instant - Cisco WAP500 series. It performs management through Single Point Setup (clustering) without a controller. See: http://ciscobeatsaruba.com/network-solution-comparison-cisco-smb-vs-aruba-instant/

Hi Leah,You are correct, but

Hi Leah,

You are correct, but it has differences. Unlike IAP's which can scale to 50+, the WAP's are considered "SMB" with a 16 per cluster limit. the IAP's ability to be converted to Controller based management and it's redundancy built in are also big differences.

Just Apples to Oranges.

Hi,

Scott is correct. Cisco requires a dedicated controller.
