How many AP will wlc 5508 support in HREAP Groups?

Hi,

I have a new deployment of 44 3502i AP's in 3 buildings at one of my campus'.

The 5508 wlc is running latest 7.0.116.0 code.

I have some users who take their work with them as they go from location to location on this campus.

They need to be able to smoothly switch from AP to AP without having to reauthenticate each time the next AP takes over in the handoff.

On the ssid in question we run 802.1x back to 1 auth server; there is no failover auth server.

All APs are in one AP Group.

My thought is to add all 44 of the APs to one HREAP Group.

Will this be the best/simplest solution?

Thank you

Just keep in mind that the limit is 25 AP's per H-REAP group if you go that route.

You do not need to use h-reap groups unless you have local radius servers and want the primary radius server to be that of the local then the secondary as the central (for example). How you have it now is fine.

Scott,

Thanks!

I thought hreap groups had a hard limit but I could not remember and I did not find the document when I went looking.

That was exactly my question, how many APs can be in an hreap group.

Since I have 44 APs I will probably break it into 2 hreap groups. The office group and the DC group.

Correct.. You would have to break it up into two.
