I want to configure and manage AP's in an environment with out Extreme switches or an wireless controller. Is there a best practice for this? What the best way to manage them without NetSight or OneView?
Appliances in some form are the suggested model. Even if you were using a competitors AP, lets say it supports "the cloud" model or "software" that sits on a standalone server in your network, they are all still using some type of appliance the access points sends data to.
The site has a T1 connection from their ISP, they have one site that everything points to ( 5 or 6 small branches) with just an AP or a dumb switch. At their main site they have older Cisco switches and a server, phone system and a Cisco wireless controller that they do not want to continue using.
