WAN latency between AP and WLC in local mode

Hi,

WAN latency requirement is well defined in documentation when using H-REAP (300ms (version 6.0) and 2 seconds (version 7.0.116.0 and later)).

I cannot find recent update on the WAN latency requirements when using local mode. The only reference I found is:

http://www.cisco.com/application/pdf/paws/99947/lwapp-traffic-study.pdf

Can you explain what technical guidelines are when using local mode over the WAN?

Thanks,

WAN latency between AP and WLC in local mode

Most of the documentation is going to assume that you have a WLC at the same site as the Local mode AP, so yeah very little reference information there.

So for running local mode across the WAN, I would still keep it to ~300ms roud trip, less if you are trying to do voice across the wireless, as it requires ~150ms round trip, IIRC.

For just data, you might be able to be a bit higher than 300ms, but that should be a pretty good baseline, and completely doable with today's infrastructures.

just my $0.378(increased for inflation)
