WLC + 3 x LAP Test environment equipment list recommendations....

I'm currently building a test environment in order to practice for CCNP Wireless as well as perform client demo's.  I'm interested in the differences between the large controllers.  Does the less expensive 2400 provide for a similar configuration to the 4400, or 5500 series?  Also, I'm planning on getting 1142's to act as a Wireless Site Survey AP as well as setup a test environment to demonstrate roaming.  Any advice would be welcome!

Regards,

Justin

The 2504 should be good enough. You really don't want the 4400's since they are EOS. I run most of my home lab off a 2504 and does everything I need it to do. I do have a 5508, but my 2504 runs my home wireless too.

+5 scott.

Besides what Scott said, if you want to proceed with studying cisco wireless after done with CCNP you may need two controllers one of them would be 2508 but the other should be larger controller that supports some advanced features that are not available in 2508 (anchor termination for example).

Thanks Scott and Amjad for the quick responses!  I will look into purchasing a 2508.  I'm working on a project involving redundant 5508's for work at the moment so I think that project will give me enough exposure to the advanced features that I can use the 2504/8 in my lab for continuing education and testing purposes.
