What are best practices in consideration to wireless network design? I have a WLC 4400 and 1200 AP's that I want to deploy to replace my existing wireless network. I am researching the best network design for implementing a secured wireless infrastructure and also having a quest account for non employee's to logon to and surf the Internet. We also have WAN sites that need to be included in this design.
consider redundancy in your WLC, if your WLS is 4402 (2 port), 4404 (4 ports), it dependens on how many access point you have, just remember to use aprox. 25 access point per port y configure the ports for backup with the other port.(port 1= backup port 2)(port 2= backup port 1 and so on), about the security you should create VLANs. you can use a radius server(windows server or Cisco ACS) to validate your internal users, for guest users you can use webauthentication and in the guest vlan just route to the internet.
for webauthentication you can use for internal users too, each users you create can be in diferent vlan.
