I've just got a technical question. I'm just wondering if it could be possible to use WLC2504 to manage AP that are on a remote networks, ie they are behind a WAN link and behind a router. Let me explain myself bettter. This is what I'm trying to achive; in the Head Office I'm thinking of installing the WLC2504 to manage 5-locally-installed AP (with its appropriate Guest VLAN and Corp VLAN), then on the other two branches install another 5 APs respectively (with same schema Guest VLAN and Corp VLAN, needeles to say with different IPs).
Obviously, all 3 sites are connected using a WAN private network (all networks are routable) so my question is; could the APs installed on the remote branches talk to the WLC installed at the HO and register to grab their configuration? From what I've seen in all documentation is that WCL2504 can only talk to APs installed whithin same premises, ie only inter VLAN traffic and not traversing WAN links/routers.
So what you have to look at is the support for the WLC and the WLC code, which in your case, the 2504 and code supports FlexConnect. Many new access points support FlexConnect, but you need to verify in the FlexConnect matrix. The 1600 is a newer AP and is supported:
