Hello Community, I am working on an Access Points extension project for a client that currently has a Wireless Controller V2110 with Extreme Wireless V9.21.19.003 and with the following number of Access Points and models:
According to the price list, it is noted that the only Access Points models that are currently being offered by the IdentiFi Wireless family are the AP39xxI / E. These APs only work with a Wireless Controller with Extreme Wireless V10.01 or higher. Therefore, these Access Points can not be used with the version currently owned by the client.
On the other hand, I also understand that Access Points AP36xx models are not compatible with Extreme Wireless V10. Therefore, to carry out an update from V9 to V10 requires a high investment from the client since he would almost have to buy everything again. This would leave us poorly positioned, because it could lead to a competitive scenario with another provider, which we do not have today.
Reviewing the articles of the GTAC Knowledge Home and the consultations that take place in the Community, we find that there are solutions to solve the need to change all Access Points that are not compatible with Extreme Wireless V10.
These are some of the links I found with the possible solution mentioned:
From this information, I have the following questions:
- Does the solution require configuring the two controllers in high availability (Split HA Pair) or does it only require configuring a Mobility Domain or does it require both configurations?
- In case that they are different solutions. What are the advantages and disadvantages of each solution?
- What would be the process for the implementation of the configurations? Do we have to make the configurations with both controllers in V9 and then migrate one to V10 or can be made the configurations directly with the controllers in different versions? What licenses should we consider?
- Is there any technical document explaining the processes to follow for this type of implementation?
I will appreciate your support.
Many thanks in advance.
