How do you upgrade a 4402-25 to 4402-50???

Hello,

I was wondering, how do you upgrade the license on a AIR-WLC4402-25-K9 to handle 50 access points instead of 25? Is it simply just a software upgrade or license upgrade? And how do we purchase the upgrade software or license? What's the part number? I couldn't find it anywhere.

Thanks

Hi Nolan,

You won't love this answer but, the number of supported AP's on a WLC is based on the Hardware configuration and cannot be changed. You will need to purchase a second WLC. The upside is you will be able to add some redundancy to your deployment :) Here is a clip;

\\The limitation on the number of supported access points is based on the hardware that you have. The 4402 WLC with two gigabit Ethernet ports comes in configurations that support 12, 25, and 50 access points. The 4404 WLC with four gigabit Ethernet ports supports 100 access points.

AIR-WLC4402-12-K9

4400 Series WLAN Controller for up to 12 Cisco access points

AIR-WLC4402-25-K9

4400 Series WLAN Controller for up to 25 Cisco access points

AIR-WLC4402-50-K9

4400 Series WLAN Controller for up to 50 Cisco access points

AIR-WLC4404-100-K9

4400 Series WLAN Controller for up to 100 Cisco access points

Hope this helps!

Send your Cisco Partner a Purchase Order for a new 4402-50. LOL Unfortunately like Rob says, there is no upgrade. That may change in the future.
