Coova Chilli captive portal and WLC 5508

We are plannig to install a WLC 5508.

Actually, there is a Nortel Controller with some Nortel  APs.

The controllers use Coova CHILLI captive portal to authenticate. Also the CHILLI server acts as a DHCP server for APs and Wireless clients. The Nortel Control does not authenticate the wireless clients, is used only for AP management.

My questions are :

1.- Does the Cisco WLC 5508  works with the CHILLI?

2.- Is there any documentation?

Thanks!
