Need your advise to design below requirement, I am confused on the licensing part.
Customer has 2 x sites, and 400 APs, they are interested in going with vWLC, so below are 2 options they might select
Option 1: 1 x vWLC on each site
Option 2 : 2 x vWLC on each site
So in either case, do I need to purchase 400 AP licenses or 800 (400 each site) ?
I am in competition with Aruba and they are able to provide any number of controllers with only one set of licenses. Is that the case with us also?
Like for example if customer buys 4 controllers 2 at each site do they need to buy 400 licenses or 800?
And second case if customer places one controller on each sitr then perhaps only 400 right?
Please help to answer for both scenarios
400 AP are pretty large, consider if you really want vWLC. Take a look at features NOT supported
especially the line "AP on local mode not supported" (means all 400 AP will run in FlexMode, kind of uncontrolled and messy at that scale)
Beside that, what Scott said. Hardware WLC with HA licence as standby and run in N+1 (kind of RAID5) or SSO (kind of RAID1)
