We are using Cisco Wireless solution in our network. Using 4400/5500 WLCs and 3500/1130 series APs.
A new requirement has come up and we need to provide connectivity between two buildings (which are within 1 km) using wireless. This link should be able to give >=100Mbps.
As we already have 3500/1130 APs, can a wireless bridge be established using them which can also give >=100Mbps? Can this be done using a WLC based solution? What I mean is: Do I need to have a standalone AP solution or can it be done while both the APs register to WLC? What are the AP models/antennas that can meet my requirement?
- You can use either standlone or lightweight APs to achive what you want. If you use standalone you need to configure them as bridges. If you want to use lightweight APs you need to configure the mode as bridge (indoor mesh) and enable ethernet bridging.
- Both 3500 and 1130 can be used but 3500 will achive 100 Mbps while 1130 will not. That is because 3500 APs support 802.11n while 1130 APs do not.
- If you want to use lightweight 3500 AP to achive this you need to be on controller version 22.214.171.124 or later. Earlier version numbers only support indoor mesh with 1130 and 1240 APs but not with APs that support 802.11n.
For me I always suggest to use genuine outdoor AP (1550 model for example) to be used outdoor. But if you only have the indoors and you don't want to buy outdoor APs you can still utilize their benefits.

This is the start of a display filter cross reference between Wireshark and OmniPeek.
The 1st installment is a table of advanced filters. More filters will be added as time allows.

I have created a Powershell script to automatically add a Wireless Guest User on Cisco WLCs. (tested on 2500 Series)
The script should be completely self explanatory.
