Guest Access Query

Hi All,

Suppose we have 50 x WAN sites and we have 5 APs per  site.

If we to enable Guest Access for all sites, does  that mean we need  license of 250 for the anchor controller?

What is the best recommendation for provisioning licenses for guest anchor?

I have gone through the 7.0 config guide but apart from wired guest info not much help there.

Any help is very much appreciated.

Thanks,

Janesh

No. For guest anchoring you just need either a 4402-12 or 5508-12. Anything more is a waste. You see, the anchor doesn't manage any AP's just clients. The license are for ap count.

Re: Guest Access Query

I will piggy back off of Scott.

Where the licenses may come into play is if you have a 5508 and you do office extends. At that point, each O/E access point would take up one license on the DMZ controller. If you have plans to do OE you may want to keep that in mind.
