Any advice on Airespace 4012, 4101, 4124, 4136
Posted 13 November 2009 - 09:40 AM
WLSE and WCS - ACS and ISA - RADIUS Servers. Microsoft DHCP Services and Cisco DHCP Services (of course).
My little home fleet is arriving in the door as we speak.
Anybody have any any advice or things to look out for?
2 1000 Series APs - Airspace Branded
Several 123x/124x Cisco Branded
1131 Cisco Branded
I've got 2 NetGear Wireless Routers to use as my Rogue Devices.
I understand I can use on of my Airespace WLCs as a Location Appliance.
I've got a few Wireless to Serial Interfaces and some Wireless Handheld Clients of various makes and models that support a few different features - depending on vendor and make of code.
I've got most of the software tools for surveying, WLAN Packet Analysis and mostly anything else one might think of.
The only thing I don't have is a lot of space since I only have about 2400 Square Feet for my Wireless Lab and I probably have 12 APs total.

1 AP per 2k, itíll cook you breakfast too!
No really, make sure the power is a 1mW or 3dBm, depending on fw ect.
Not really sure what your trying to accomplish, youíre the CCNP, I just wanna retire to Maine in a couple years?

I'm deploying the 4404/4402's at work. I've already set up WLAN Mobility and Guest Wireless from anywhere in the state.
So now I'm setting it up from my home network and I'm going to try to expand it a bit...
I have 1-2 buddies semi-locally who have asked to join in with me.
So I'm thinking one WLC at one site and one WLC at the other site.
They would connect over a remote Internet Connection back to my network - over one or more tunnels as we evolve.
So 1 WLC at my site and 2 remote WLCs from remote sites that communicate over the Internet.
It's more of an exercise than anything else but I want to run it over a few technologies and do some cause and effect analysis.
I have the APs and each guy may have some too.
With the WCS and the 2 WLSEs I have some design worked out for me.
You are correct about the power requirements - it is going to be tight.
I need 3 APs for location services and that is an area I want to explore further. I may do some exercises that include the whole of my property - over 10,000 square feet. I need some outside enclosures first.
I have 2 Yorkies and a Maltese that may soon be wearing RFID Tags to go romping in the yard.
