Branch Office & HREAP & local Internet breakout

Hi,

I´m planning right now a local Guest Access breakout for a Branch Site which is connected over

a HREAP AP to a centraliced WLC . If I have it correctly understand then  I´ve to do following:

1. Creat a Guest SSID on the centralized WLC ( 5508 )  / enable local switching for this SSID

2. Create a Guest VLAN on the Branch Site with a local Internet breakout

3. Configure a Trunk port for the HREAP AP on the Branch site ( 1 VLAN for  Corportate SSID/ local switching   and 1x VLAN for Guest
with local Internet breakout )

Can I use the WLC as DHCP server for the Guest  SSID or should I use a local DHCP server ? I know about a feature

"central DHCP Processing "  but I never used this before and it is not 100% clear if this can help me in this case.

Thanks for help.

Local switching really requires you to have local DHCP. Now this is to support when the FlexConnect ap is in standalone. You can use a centralized DHCP server but wouldn't use the WLC as it's not supported by TAC.
