Upgrading AIR-WLC4402-25-K9 to AIR-WLC4402-50-K9

Hi All,

Is it possible to upgrade my 4402 WLC that is currently supporting 25 AP's to 50 AP's?

can it be done via a software update or is the license tie to the hardware and I will be unable to upgrade?

Thanks in advance!

Hi Jason,

I've checked under the Q&A section. Apparently,the license is tied to the hardware. no way to add additional license, unlike the 5500 series where its one hardware, and license based.

anyways, thanks for your feedback.

you can't upgrade

AIR-WLC4402-25-K9 to AIR-WLC4402-50-K9 ,because the hardware of the two product are different,not base on the license

The answer is No. I had the same issue and had tyo purchase a 5508. Do not buy the 5508-25 and the 25 license upgrade. That method is mroe expensive. Buy the 5508-50 and you also can upgrade more license in the future.
