Can the Cisco AIR-AP1261N-A-K9 AP be controlled by a wireless LAN controller?

Hi,

We have the Cisco AIR-AP1261N-A-K9  ...... is this unit compatible with a Wireless LAN controller?  If not, can it be upgraded to allow this?

Hi Shane,

Yes, it is. You require min 7.0 software code on your WLC.Refer table 2 of the given reference

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/wireless/compatibility/matrix/compatibility-matrix.html

If AP is autonomous mode, then you may need to load a recovery image (to convert to LWAP) prior to connect to a WLC. This post may help you on that.

Hi Shane,

Looks like you have got a autonomous access point. But don't worry this can be converted to light weight and can be used with controller based solution.

Please checks below post which details how to convert autonomous to lightweight ap.
