Configuring a WISM for redundancy

I have two WISM modules that support just over 350 AP's. Can the WISMs be configured to provide failover for AP's at another site connected over the WAN.

Thanks, Donald James

Re: Configuring a WISM for redundancy

Hi Donald, watch on your traffic flows, because all of your WLAN Traffice goes through the LWAPP Tunnel and terminates on the WiSM. If you want to access local Ressources the Traffic went back the Destination, maybe back to the WiSM and the WLAN Client. From the Configuration Point of View, the Virtual IP has to be the same on all Controllers, the RF Group Name too (look at the Mobility Neighbors). Have a look on the WAN Link Performance, Bandwidth, Packet Loss, RTT. How Many AP?s do you have on both sides, a maximum of 150 per Controller and 300 per WiSM is supported. Regards, Michael
