IPv6 on WIFI with WLC 5520

Hi,
I try to setup IPv6 on the WLC 5520 (8.8.130), for only the WIFI Clients not for the WLC and APs.

 

I found this from Cisco https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/wireless/controller/technotes/8-0/IPV6_DG.html#pgfId-76851
and now maybe someone can help me out with some questens?

 

Is this importent for me "Prior to Release 8.0, APs did not require connectivity to an IPv6 network, as all traffic is encapsulated inside the IPv4 CAPWAP tunnel between the AP and the controller." and is necessary to activate multicast?

 

My setup:
Managment Interface:
VLAN for WLC and APs IPv4 only
Dynamic Interface for WIFI:
VLAN with IPv4 and IPv6 DHCP per Router

 

thanks for your help
Regards
Martin

I haven't enabled it in my network, but generally it's a good idea to have Multicast working with IPv6, as Broadcast was replaced by Multicast.

Should I switch the managmant vlan and CAPWAP tunnel from IPv4 to IPv6, is there any good reason to do so?

If you are planning to do dual-stack, configure both on the WLC. That might help with troubleshooting in the future.
