Branch to Branch AP Connectivity

Hello

I have taken 10 AP wth 2504 controller for my Head office. I will also take two more ap's for my branch offices. Head office and Branch office which is connected through GRE tunnel using mpls. I will control ap's of branch office through wlc of my Head Office. For this every one used flex connectivity. I don't want to use flex connectivity. Is there any other way ? If yes, pls let me know the details ?

Thanks for your info.

Depending on where your

Depending on where your RESOURCES your branch offices need to access, you may not need Flex.   If all (most) of resources (i.e. file servers, DHCP, DNS, Internet, etc. are located in the central branch, then the AP at the branch will tunnel back to the WLC, and then be "close" to the resources.  If your branch, on the other hand, has print server, file server, and resources you access from branch wireless folk, then you'll be bouncing back and forth across the WAN a lot.

You can leave the AP's in

You can leave the AP's in local mode but all the traffic will get tunnels to the WLC.  Typically your local site would have APs in local mode and your branch you would define as FlexConnect local switching. Why would you not want to use FlexConnect only on the branch office?
