OfficeExtend Access Point

Hi,

I have a question. I configure a LAN with an office extended technology with AP: if the link from WLC and AP is down, the client that are connected to the AP, can continue to exchange the datas?

Thanks in advance.

---------------------------http://www.cisco.com/image/gif/paws/113003/office-extend-config-00.pdf ---------------------------------------------

A user is given an access point (AP) primed with the IP address of the corporate controller, or the user

can enter the IP address of the controller from the configuration screen (setup HTML pages).

• The user plugs the AP to their home router.

The AP gets an IP address from their home router, joins the primed controller and creates a secured

tunnel.

Cisco Aironet 600 Series OEAP then advertises the corporate SSID, which extends the same security

methods and services across the WAN to the user s home.

• If the remote LAN is configured, one wired port on the AP is tunneled back to the controller.

• The user can then enable additionally a local SSID for personal use. ----> in this condition, if the wan link go down, the client can exchange a datas?

Oh it works. In fact I just did a "shut" to my internet connect here in my lab and lost all CAPWAP with the ap AP/CONTROLLER.. The local SSID was still servicing traffic.

OfficeExtends is an extension of HREAP local switching.
