Remote 5508 Standby Controller HA-SKU

How does the standby HA-SKU controller that is located remotely miles away maintains it's heartbeat while serving as backup to multiple sites.

Remote 5508 Standby Controller HA-SKU

Hi Michael,

There are different deployments of HA with the HA-SKU.

1) You have AP-SSO/Client-SSO this is where the controllers are 1 - 1 sync and not 1 to multiple.

2) You have HA N+1 backup. This is where the WLC turned into HA converts to MAX licenses and acts like a fullly licensed controller. You can back up 1 to many in this design.

Hope this helps

Just to add... You don't want to do AP SSO over layer 3 unless you are spanning your subnets. What you need to do is N+1 which is what George also posted. There is no heartbeat between the two with N+1 like in AP SSO.
