WiNG Express Compatibility


Hi Champs,

I'm fairly new to WiNG Wireless.
We have got few AP 7522 and AP 7532. We would like to use WiNG Express.
My question is: Could we make AP7522 a virtual controller and then manage AP7532 or vice versa?
Is there any compatibility matrix available?
Thanks.

Heterogeneous AP management in WiNG 5.9.1.0-29R Adds support on the Virtual Controller (VC) AP to manage heterogeneous AP models for the 802.11ac AP platforms.

The following AP models can be deployed in a heterogenous AP VC scenario:
AP 8533
AP 8432
AP 7632/AP 7662/AP 7612
AP 7622/AP7602
AP 7532/AP 7522/AP 7562

Following are the supported adoption hierarchy:
- AP 7662/7632 can adopt AP 7662/7632/7612
- AP 8533/8432 can adopt AP 8533/8432/7562/7532/7522/7662/7632/7622/7612/7602
- AP7532/AP7522/AP7562 can be managed by AP8533/AP8432 but not by AP7632/AP7662

Note:
- Image upload capability will only be enabled on the AP that is elected as VC
- VC can manage up to 64 APs
Thanks Robert,

In my case, when I tried to make 7532 a VC, I could see 7522s in the VC GUI, but the radios were offline.
When I made 7522 a VC, I could see rest of the 7522s radios online, but 7532's radios were offline.
We are running v5.9.1.3

You have to use 'AnyAP" profile to configure adoptee.
Hi Robert,

Is there any option in VC GUI?
or this needs to be done from CLI?

You should be able to do this in both UI & CLI
UI:
Configuration->System Profile -> ADD
name profile, choose ap type 'anyap'

CLI:
#configure
Enter configuration commands, one per line. End with CNTL/Z.
AP-VC(config)#profile anyap default-anyap
AP-VC(config-profile-default-anyap)#

This can only be done in the enterprise APs, not the Express. Express can only be configured via GUI.

Is this supported in WiNG Express too?

Wing Express is a EOS product

Hi Moin,

It sounds like what you are asking is if you can mix the Expres and the regular enterprise AP and have either manage the other. If so, Express can only manage Express and enterprise can only manage enterprise.
