mesh and no mes controllers

Currrently my network is running several wisim for my indoor wireless no mesh solution. with code .

i need a mesh solution for the outside parking lot that will work with

the 1522

now according to the document the options i have is

or Release

now i am runnning wcs

i would like to keep the same version in the indor ap and perhaps use version for mesh outdoor, according the the readme document its supported to run both version.

has anyone in this forum have both mesh and no mesh controllers?

are they in the same mobility group?

i want to avoid upgrading WCS, as well as the controllers service indor AP.


Re: mesh and no mes controllers

Mesh is supported up to was release in Jul 1st 2009. You need a WCS version released AFTER Jul 1st 2009 and to be at least 4.2 code.

You need to wait for the next maintenance release of 4.2 or 5.2 or 6.0 code. Soon there should be a maintenance release for 6.0 and that will work with

You should be able to have mesh and non mesh controllers in the same mobility group, and you can keep if you want. is not a MESH code that I am aware of, as there is no mesh code after 4.2 of my knowledge.

If you want to use Mesh and, then you need WC The upgrade from should take you about 10 minutes and will not loose any data, you will need to upgrade your WCS for this scenario to wok as was released AFTER but BEFORE



Re: mesh and no mes controllers

I can't speak for the WCS questions, but I want to correct a few things here:

The code is intended for only 1500 series Mesh APs, not the 1520's.

In 4.1, Mesh features were combined with the normal controller. In order to progress with 4.2 development, they took out Mesh and split the trains (hince

However, in 5.2 and 6.0, they have combined the trains again. So you can infact get your 1522s up and running in

My question to you however, is there any particular reason why you are leaving indoor wireless at 4.2? Do you have 1000 Series Airespace equipment holding you back, or are you just comfortable at 4.2?

I've seen mobility defined between the 4.2 and 4.1M code, as well, 4.2-6.0 should be able to have mobility.

Re: mesh and no mes controllers

1520s are supported in 5.2 onwards and 1510s will continue to be supported on Maintenance Releases of 4.2.

Re: mesh and no mes controllers

so you are telling me that controllers

running 4.2 and 6.0 can have the same mobility group? will this affect the

APs? since some are at code 4.2

and they might register to a higher code controller
