Help with first time "controller based" Site Survey

We are moving from autonomous 1242AG to "2500 LAP with 2600 WLC"

I am used to bringing 1 autonomous AP to do my Site Surveys, but now that that I have a LAP, does it mean I need to bring a Wireless Controller with me so that the LAP could join it?

 

What do you guys do? Bring WLC, LAP and small UPS?

 

Any ideas would be helpful

 

Thanks!

Hi,

If you only have a LAP now then also you can convert to autonomous AP and do the site survey and then convert back to Lightweight.

You just need the 2 images.

One autonomous image:k9W7

One lightweight image: k9W8

http://software.cisco.com/download/release.html?mdfid=284362264&flowid=34154&softwareid=280775090&release=15.2.4-JB4&relind=AVAILABLE&rellifecycle=ED&reltype=latest

Site survey is nothing to do with WLC(You can go ahead with Autonomous AP for site survey).

On the same place put the LAP and connect to nearest switch.

WLC push the config to LAP and also manages the RRM feature(Power, Channel....).
