Re: Question on licensing the controller et al?

Hi Gary,

Licensing is enforced on the WLC product line. With the 4400 series

of WLC the license was tied directly to the controller size that was

ordered, and could not be updated/upgraded to support a higher number

of AP's

ie;

4402-12 (could support 12 AP's)

4402-25 (could support 25 AP's)

4404-100 (could support 100 AP's)

The new 5500 series can be ordered with a base amount like 12 and

upgraded down the road via a new "License" to support 25,50,100 etc.

Rob

That explains it and I should have remembered that as I have 2 5508s which can add more licenses and 4 4400s that are hard coded.
