In our business we have 7 AP that are AIR-AP1852E-x-K9C with cisco mobility express image on each one.
We need to add an extra access point; can we buy an AIR-AP1852E-x-K9 or we need an other AIR-AP1852E-x-K9C? what are the differences between C and non C version?
Model numbers ending in C are, by default, factory-shipped with a Cisco Mobility Express software image., you need to purchase K9C else if you purchase with normal image CAPWAP, you have to convert it to Mobility express.
do I understand it right that I can run one AP "AIR-AP1852E-E-K9C" as Master (Controller AP) and the others can be the normal "AIR-AP1852E-E-K9"?
Is there any evidence in official documents that I do not see or understand?
In any case, many thanks for the answer.
That will help me for now!
Refer Ordering section in the following document
Also, the Mobility Express Deployment Guide: Table 1 & 2
Do you know if K9C-APs (APs with mobility express software) can also be managed by a controller, e.g. AIR-CT3504-K9, or does the other image have to be installed?
