Wireless Bridge Management options


I am really new to Wireless Solution. What will be the best management option for the Cisco 1310 or 1410 being used as Bridge(Pairs: Root and Non-Roots)? I am planning to use WLSE for managing 1410 Bridges as suggested in the Cisco Docments but at the same time in one of the documents they are suggesting to migrate from WLSE to WCS!Is it advisable to use WCS instead of WCS for Wireless Bridges? What will you recommend?

Please advice. Thank you.


Re: Wireless Bridge Management options

Unfortunately, WCS isn't an option. There is currently no bridging option for Cisco's lightweight solution, and WCS only manages lightweight access points.

So while WLSE is your only option, it's also EOS/EOL. So... yeah... Cisco needs to step it up and give us some options here.

Sorry, probably not what you expected to hear :/ You might want to look at a third-party management platform like AirWave, since Cisco doesn't actually have a living solution for autonomous bridging management.

Re: Wireless Bridge Management options

Thank you so much Jeff. That is very unfortunate. So we really do not have much choice other than using WLSE. We use Windows Server for our solution. Do I need standalone server for WLSE or can we install WLSE on existing server?
