I currently have a UC540 system with 12x aironet 1130 APs. Seamless roaming does not seem to work, and the recommendation seems to be to introduce a WLAN controller. Can anyone suggest a model that will work with this existing equipment?
OK, the system that I have is OK for data, but there is a 2-sec delay in voice traffic when switching between APs. I understand that a WLC would assist in removing this delay, but possibly WDS and Fast Secure Roaming would achieve the same result?
Yes, wds and fast roaming can address delays in client roaming between access points. We have done many deployments using this in couple ap scenario with success. You first would want to confirm your ap locations are in best spot physically. This can only be done with proper site survey. After wireless saturation is confirmed good then I would look to config changes.
