Adding another floor WCS & 4404 WLAN Controller

Dear Support,

Just after some advise or direction as preparing to add another floor to our hq directly above or existing floor.

We already have a WLAN (100 AP) and WCS running, with 15 APs on the current floor. Due to expansion we have now taken rent out on the floor above from the owners.

As I never set up the existing WCS and WLAN controller, I just after some advice or configuring it for another 15 APs for the new floor. These are all 1000 LWAPPs units.

Questions I need to answer is how difficult to add another floor map to WCS and if we need the APs in the same vlan to deal with the seapage / radiation between the floors.

Thanks in advance.

Regards, Adrian.

Hi Adrian,

Here is a doc for adding maps to the WCS;

Hope this helps answer part of your question!

Re: Adding another floor WCS & 4404 WLAN Controller

Hi Rob,

Many thanks for the link, this is exactly what I'm after for the floor plans.

Just now need to find out if I should have both floors on the same wireless VLAN or to utilise another port on the 4404 ... think it is only using one of the 4 at the moment.

I know their is a mention somewhere in the documentation that if you go above 25 aps (and we'll have 30 once upgrade is complete) that you need to use more than 1 port on the WLAN controller.

Thanks again, regards, Adrian.
