I´m going to setup a new Cisco 3650 in where I pretend to add 5 new AP´s, 4 of them are close to the MDF and they are going to be connected directly to the Cisco 3650 but the other one isn´t possible to be connected directly to the Cisco 3650. According the information published by Cisco, isn´t possible to add and manage Cisco LWAP Ap´s that aren´t connected directly to the Cisco 3650, can someone can confirm if it´s possible to add AP´s not directly connected to the Switch 3650 in order to be managed as LWAP AP´s?
Thanks in advance.
Do you know if it´s possible this feature in the Switches 3850? Or the only option is to adquire small WLC?
Thanks for your answer.
Thanks for your answer. I was checking the Cisco documentation and accordint the specs, the 3850 are supporting CAPWAP:
Supports Cisco Converged Access mobility architecture with CAPWAP termination at the access
Any comments about this? :) Thanks!
Yes it does, but only if directly connected. Read down further and you will see the following:
So it seems we can connect a stack switch via Fiber and then connect the AP that is far of the MDF. :)
Thanks Adam! My best wishes.
Just a last question:
The longest distance I can have between a switch stack and another is the stack length that will have my stack cable?
Or. why it was mentioned that a Fiber switch can be used as a mobile controller extending the use of WLC?
You can separate them and build a switch peer group. Set one as an MC and one as an MA.
This should help:
It is possible to do this with the 3650?
What I understand is that I can connect two switches:
Switch A ========= Switch B
Through a fiber multimode link, configure Switch A as MC and Switch B as MA and I can connect AP´s in the Switch B. Is that correct?
Thanks friend for your time and support.
