A question about mesh and FlexConnect

Hi,

 

we have a setup where there is two 1552s connected to a centralized controller. The APs are in Flex+Bridge mode. One is RAP and the second one is MAP.

 

Now the mesh AP is broken and the replacement product 1560-series does not support Flex+Bridge - not at least in version 8.5. What happens if the RAP is in Flex+Bridge and we connect the mesh in Bridge mode. Does it work? Does the client traffic drop in the local network after the RAP?

Re: A question about mesh and FlexConnect

Just get the 1570 which can do Flex+Bridge on code 8.5 and solves your problem :-).

Also it looks like code 8.8 may support Flex+Bridge on 1560 but then you would need to upgrade both APs at the very least (and any other you have running)

To answer your question - You won't be able to host a Flex/Local switch WLAN off the MAP and it won't then drop 'locally' off the RAP - I imagine it would just break completely but it would need testing. TAC certainly wouldn't support it in the event of an issue.
