Thanks, but no cigar.
Result pretty much as expected. I've raised (yet another!!) wireless TAC case.

What a crock!
Here's the reply from Cisco.
Where's that number for Avaya?
The 1552E does not support WIPS. I have checked the behavior in the lab as well and also internal documents.
Unfortunately, there is no external document stating the same explicitly.
I hav reached out to the BU to check if this is in the roadmap.. We really appreciate ur patience... i guess we serve our customer better than any other company anyday..
wIPS sub-mode is not supported on the 1530 or 1550 series access points.
