Roaming between 4400 and 5500 controllers

Hi, we are planning to do an AP migration, but there is a doubt for this.

Actually we have a 4402 controller with 1120 APs both of which are marked as EoL products, we want to jump over the new 2600 APs and 5508 Controller for increase signal coverage but we have the following deals:

Last firmware for 4402 controller is 7.0

Firmware needed for 5508 to support 2600 APs is 7.3

Is it possible to configure mobility between 4402 and 5508 even with different firmware branch?

1 In the 7.2.x.x release, RF Groups and Profiles were introduced. RRM for 7.2.x.x and later releases is not compatible with RRM for any previous release.

Personally,

If the locations are connected and you can roam between 2 controllers on different codes, you dont want to do that.

If you are looking for anchoring, yes its supported.

Roaming between 4400 and 5500 controllers

It is highly recommended to Test Mobility(L2, L3 roaming) before implementing between 7.0.x.x and 7.3, Same for auto-anchor.
