Cisco 2504 Capability Question

Hello,

I need to replace a 4402 with a 2504 controller and put a 2504 controller in the DMZ for guest access.  This would be the setup:

The 4402 would be replaced at a remote site (not hreap) and support a couple of wlans, one of those would not be local and would be anchored back to the 2504 in the DMZ for the guest services.  All of my 5508's also would be hitting the 2504-DMZ to anchor the guest service as well.  Is this still feesable in the 2504 series?  I ask because I saw somewhere (albiet I cant find it again) that said you could not do anchors on the 2504 series?

Thanks,

Raun

Cisco 2504 Capability Question

Looks like the answer about 2500 series being used as a guest anchor has changed:

Q.   Can the Cisco 2100/2500 Series Wireless LAN Controller be used as a guest   anchor controller in the unsecured network area?

A. Yes, starting Cisco Unified Wireless Network Software Release 7.4, the       Cisco 2500 Series Wireless LAN Controller can terminate (up to 15 EoIP tunnels)       guest traffic outside the firewall. The Cisco 2000 Series Wireless LAN       Controller can only originate guest tunnels.

Cisco 2504 Capability Question

Talked to my SE, for everyone else, a 2504 can not be an  anchor controller, but can connect to anchor for things such as guest access.

Re: Cisco 2504 Capability Question

That is true. 2504 can not be an anchor. it can only be a foreign WLC that configured (for some SSIDs) with some other anchor.

Q. Can the Cisco 2100/2500 Series Wireless LAN Controller be used as a guest anchor controller in the unsecured network area?

A. No. The Cisco 2100/2500 Series Wireless LAN Controller cannot terminate guest traffic outside the firewall. The Cisco 2000 Series Wireless LAN Controller can only originate guest tunnels.

Cisco 2504 Capability Question

Yup, I had read this on 7.4. Unfortunately, you can't do wired guest anchor to the 2504 though.  Somewhat limiting, in my opinion.  Cisco trying to get you to buy that 5508 to throw in your dmz.   Thanks for the reply!
