Re: Is Cisco air-ap1230a a lightweight access point?

Hi Bao,

The 1230 is not a Lightweight AP, but can be upgraded to LWAPP with the A Radio model listed below (Note that this model is EOS/EOL) this is probably not the best choice for your studies;

Solution Requirements

Migration from autonomous access point mode to lightweight mode is possible on these Cisco Aironet access point platforms:

All 1130AG access points

All 1240 AG access points

For all IOS-based 1200 series modular access point (1200/1220 Cisco IOS Software Upgrade, 1210 and **1230 AP**) platforms, it depends on the radio:

if 802.11G, MP21G and MP31G are supported

if 802.11A, RM21A and RM22A are supported

The 1200 series access points can be upgraded with any combination of supported radios: G only, A only, or both G and A.

All 1310 AG access points

Hope this helps! I noticed your other post regarding the WLC suggestions and have responded there as well :)
