WLAN design question

scdigital
Beginner
Beginner

Can someone tell me what the best configuration is for the following scenario:

Site1 (Head Office & Data Centre)

100 users

Site2

80 users

Site3

40 users

Site4

40 users

Site5

30 users

Each of the sites has its own Domain Controller.

My idea is to have a vWLC at Site1 and configure AP's in H-REAP/Flexconnect mode at each of the other sites with local switching and radius authentication on the local DC.

Is this a feasible design or is there a better way?

Are you planning to use Catalyst 3850 as your LAN switch at each site?

If you are, then you can use the 3850 to terminate 50 APs at a time and enable the WLC. 

Most switches will be 3560's.

Site 1 will have 4507.

Each site will need less than 5 AP's.

Thanks

Well then, if you will have an authentication server at each site then H-REAP is a very ideal choice.

I think the max AP that is supported on a vWLC is 200? You have over 200 AP's.

We have over 200 users, not AP's.  We have around 25 AP's maximum.

Your right;:)
