Dedicated vlan for WLC

Hi,

In reviewing the lab for WLC configuration, they used a dedicated vlan for all APs and the WLC to communicate with CAPWAP.

In the production environment I'm designing for, a campus network that has many LAN connected sites all with different vlans at the edge, that would entail trunking another vlan out to the edge switches. It also requires the MetroEthernet provider to provision the same beforehand.

One of the advantages of the WLC is the ability to avoid having to add vlans at the edge for WLANs, but what about a dedicated vlan for the APs and WLC to communicate with CAPWAP? A best practice?

Thanks.

Dedicated vlan for WLC

As best practice we've only two options, keep the AP on L2 vlan(not scalable) of management or on any L3(vlan that is not part of dynamic interface of WLC) which is scalable and good for highavailability.
