Cisco wIPS access point query

Dear All,

 

I am planning to install Cisco wIPS in our network, kindly advise if I need to install access point with wireless security module to make my wIPS work or one normal cisco 3602 will be enough. I have gone through the below documents, but one says about wireless module where the other one not says about the module. Kindly suggest.

 

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/wireless/adaptive-wireless-ips-software/data_sheet_c78-501388.html - Says about module

 

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/wireless/adaptive-wireless-ips-software/qa_67-503875.html - Not says about module.

 

Kindly advise that whether the security module is mandatory to go with Cisco wIPS.

 

Regards,

Jubair.S

If you want to operate AP

If you want to operate AP normally where client can connect & do wIPS then you require the module.

Otherwise you can configure AP into monitor mode where it will not associate any clients, but do the wIPS function.

If you require limited wIPS (Enhanced Local mode) then you can have same AP to do everything. 

 

Below summarize the options available & read the given link for more details
