We have a customer that is seriously considering replacing their current infrastructure at all their remote locations with a FlexConnect solution. Their concern is if with the new FlexConnect, do the APs still have to pass all the data to the controller or is that now done on the remote locations edge, i.e. APs.
All the systems I have worked with previously the control traffic, etc. passed to the controller over the WAN nothing was done at the AP unless the WAN link went down. Just trying to double-check.
I persoanlly recommand to have centrel authentication local swicthing.....
In this state, for the given WLAN, the WLC handles all client authentication, and the H-REAP LAP switches data packets locally. After the client authenticates successfully, the controller sends capwap control commands to the H-REAP and instructs the LAP to switch that given client’s data packets locally. This message is sent per client upon successful authentication. This state is applicable only in connected mode.
