RF group an ap group

Hi

I am setting up a centralized WLAN solution wit two 5508 WLC an several decentrilized sites on different client subnets. I want to use the same SSID for all the sites but I am a little confused how I should set this up.

Can someone explain me how to use AP group , RF group and Interface on WLC ?

Best Regards

Even

Re: RF group an ap group

Hi Even,

The first question for you on this one would be whether or not you would like for the wireless traffic to be centrally, or locally switched.  When a WLAN is configured for Central switching (default), all traffic at the remote sites will be tunneled back to the WLC, and then dropped on the distribution network.  When in local switching mode, the H-REAP feature is utilized, and client traffic is dropped at the remote AP, rather than being dropped at the WLC.  I would recommend first deciding how you wish to handle the traffic, and then move on from there.

Here are some additional links that should help in your design:
