WLC mesh upgrade

In my understanding starting from WLC release 5.x there is no specific mesh firmware, instead there is a single firmare train and cisco introduced licensing in order to activate mesh features.

Now, if I have a WLC with 4.xM release I want to upgrade to 5.x or 6.x release do I need to get mesh licenses in order to maintain mesh features or there is some kind of automatic conversion?

Tnx,

Max.

Re: WLC mesh upgrade

Hi Max,

Outdoor mesh access points can be used with the without a wplus license. But you would require the wplus license for "Indoor" Mesh.

Note Other controller platforms (such as the 2100 and 4400 series controllers) also require a license for use with indoor mesh access points. See the Cisco Enterprise Wireless Mesh Licensing and Ordering Guide for details:

From this good doc;

Hope this helps!

Re: WLC mesh upgrade

Thank you Rob, that was very helpful.

I need inside mesh support, so it's now clear to me that I have to upgrade the wlc firmware and add the mesh license.

Thaks again,

Max.
