Mix AP2700 and AP2800 in same physical space?

Currently have a pair of 5508 WLCs running 8.2.110.0 code with several AIR-CAP2702I-B-K9 APs.  I need to expand in an adjacent space.  Is there any technical reason to not start using 2802s?

There isn't, but I suggest you upgrade first to 8.2.166.0 before adding the 2802, because a lot of bugs for that model were fixed in the ~5 versions since 8.2.110.0. Around next week, maybe in three, should a new (probably named 8.2.170.0) version be released. I suggest you wait for that one. See here for the beta version and the release notes: https://supportforums.cisco.com/t5/other-wireless-mobility-subjects/8-2mr7-interim-availability/

Assuming you have the right WLC software and licenses, you'll be fine.

 

Be aware that the 2800 needs more PoE than the 2700 though...  The 2700 will run on 802.3at, or 802.3af with a slightly reduced capacity.  The 2800 will only run on 802.3at.
