Hello Everyone,

We have around 45 remote location , all are connected with GRE Tunnels.

44 location have there own WLC which are managed by NCS and ISE in HQ , All 44 location have Wireless access for Guest and INternal Staff.

Now my Question is :

One location(45th) have only 10 users and I dont want to put a WLC there.

How can I provide the Guest wireless access on this location over WAN from HQ.

We can buy APs.

Please give me some ideas to solve this problem.

Here I am attaching my default plan  :

Thanks

You just configure the access point in FlexConnect mode and then on the guest SSID you would central switch the WLAN. Central switching tunnels back traffic to the WLC and local switching drops traffic off at the local site. Here are some guides to look at.

Hi,

Thanks for quick reply.

But I do not have a WLC in my HQ.

I just have NCS with ISE.All other remote sites have there on WLC which are managed by NCS.

Is there any solution in this case ??

NCS with ISE--------(DC--------Router)-------WAN---------Remote Router-------AP

Not unless you have a WLC. With ISE you can do CWA or LWA, but it requires the traffic to go to a WLC. You might look at the WLC2504 for that one site. Or place it in HQ and do FlexConnect.

You could use local switching on the AP and just manage it from one of your other WLCs?

Thanks

You can if you want guest to terminate at another location, but I would still run the Ap's in FlexConnect and centrally switch the guest and locally switch the internal SSID's. but that's me.

I think I have to use one of the spare WLC to do flexconnect with one and only Remote site.

I am new in this but still try to implement this and let u know
