Can anyone please tell me if the 3850 WLC supports Guest Anchor

Hi,

I read in the datasheet that the 3850 does not support Guest Anchor services, but I was wondering if this has changed with new code?  Does anyone know if the 3850 can support Guest Anchor, and if so would you need the WLC license to do so?

Thanks....

Currently the 3850 is not supported as a guest anchor

The 3850 can be the foreign anchor for guest traffic. So if your 3850 is currently running converged access("CA") and terminating CAPWAP traffic, then it can anchor guest traffic to a centralized controller running "New Mobility" (which would be any AireOS controller running 7.3MR1/7.5/7.6 or similar IOS controller 5760).

The 3850 can also support wired-guest anchoring as a foregin controller to a centralized host. It cannot "be the anchor" for other guests, the 5760/5508/2504 are better suited for that task.
