2500 series support mobility groups?

Do you know if the new 2500 series controller supports things like mobility groups?  Could I use 2 of these and do inter-controller roaming.

Also do you know if this would work with a 2106 controller and a 2505 controller or are they 2 completely independent controllers only knowing about their own APs??

To answer your questions more specifically -- yes, the 2500 WLC supports mobility groups, and you can have mobility groups combined with the various controller platforms (2100,2500,4400,5500).

Is mobility and roaming the same?

What if I have one 2500 WLC and 25 APs. Will roaming work or do I need WCS for that?

Hi smailmilak,

no mobility and roaming is not the same. You need for roaming between controllers a mobility configuration.

If you have only one 2500 WLC and 25 or more or less AP roaming between the AP on the one WLC will work well.

This calls Intra-Controller roaming

If you have 2 or more WLCs you need a proper mobility config for roaming between APs located on differen WLC.

This Calls Inter-Controller roaming.

More informations are here:

Thank you for fast reply.

I will check the guide.

One more question please. Wireless Control System is not needed for roaming and Voice over WLAN?

WCS is for multiple WLC and some advanced features?

No, WCS is only a management software. It doesn't have any impact for roaming or else. Only for configuration.

Meantime it is replaced by NCS Prime.

You are welcome ;-)
