Wireless LAN Controller 5520

Hello,

i´m seahcrhing some information about this Controller. Information on Cisco Page is quite few. In depth i´m interested which Access-Points the controller supports and how redundancy should be solved (i couldn´t find the information of an HA-SKU).

 

does anybody have a pdf or ppt outside the cisco page?

 

i also have accesss to cisco live doku, but i couldn´t find a presentation on that.

 

br + thx

Hi,

Check this link: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/wireless/compatibility/matrix/compatibility-matrix.html

5520 starting support from 8.1.x version.

so All AP who can support this version will be compatible with this Controller.

thanks for alle the answers until now. there is just one topci whic hsi not clear to me at the moment, regarding HA. 

i understand that this controller can exist in a N+1 HA-Modell (primary and secondary controller). 

furthermore it supports Stateful Switchover in Active/STandby Cluster. therefore it is possible to ude Back-to-Back redundancy vie the redundancy-port. 

does it also support this mode with a Layer-2 in between (to stretch between datacenters)?

is it correct that both Controllers have to be fully licensed with Access-Points in thsi scenario?

Hi

Please go through the links below for HA topic and 5520 WLC deployment admin guide which has end-end configuration steps and startup.

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/wireless/controller/technotes/7-5/High_Availability_DG.html

 

www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/wireless/controller/technotes/8-1/5520-WLC-DG/b_Cisco-5520-WLC-deployment-guide.html#topic_4AA88242A1D44CD5A51639E3220791CD

there is nevertheless a gap. 5520 is supported started from 8.0 or 8.1. this version generally supports SSO-deployment (stateful switchover) with a Layer-2 in between. 

but the HA deployment guide doesn´t mention the WLC 5520 (just 5500). in the configuration guide of the 5520 the part with HA-cluster and L2 is missing.

so at the moment i would assume that this controller doesn´t support SSO deployment with a Layer-2 in between. it´s just possible to use Back-to Back connectivity via the redundancy port.
