Does Cisco WLS Controller support 1231 AP

Postby guest » Thu May 03, 2012 9:50 am

Q: WE have over 30 Cisco 1231 AP. We would like to buy a Cisco Wireless Controller 2501 to manage all APs. After I did some research, the model # listed in support AP doesn't have 1231. Can we use WLS Controller to manage 1231 AP?

A: Yes, but you need to upgrade them to Lightweight Mode.

Based on Cisco document, the following models can be upgarded.
Migration from autonomous access point mode to lightweight mode is possible on these Cisco Aironet
access point platforms:
• All 1121G access points
• All 1130AG access points
• All 1140 access points
• All 1240AG access points
All 1250 series access points
For all IOS-based 1200 series modular access point (1200/1220 Cisco IOS Software Upgrade, 1210
and 1230 AP) platforms, it depends on the radio:
– if 802.11G, MP21G and MP31G are supported
– if 802.11A, RM21A and RM22A are supported
The 1200 series access points can be upgraded with any combination of supported radios: G only,
A only, or both G and A.
Note For an access point that contains dual radios, if one of the two radios is an LWAPP-supported
radio, the upgrade tool still performs the upgrade. The tool adds a warning message to the
detailed log that indicates which radio is unsupported.
• All 1310 AG access points
• Cisco C3201 Wireless Mobile Interface Card (WMIC)
