MSM710 Corporate / Guest SSID

For one of our customers we are interested in an HP MSM710. But before we buy it, we want to make sure that the following scenario is possible and easy to setup:

* LAN-port connected to the existing LAN

* Internet-port connected to a separate ADSL-modem/router

* SSID Corporate: AD-authentication, clients get an IP from the customer’s own DHCP-server, all traffic goes to the LAN-port, internet-port is invisible for those clients

* SSID Guest: authentication via MSM710, clients get an IP from the MSM710, all traffic goes to the internet-port, LAN-port is invisible for those clients

 

I already contacted HP presales several times, unfortunately I never got any response…

 

 

Kind regards

Frederik.

Yes this is a very common setup. Allthough today I'd buy the MSM720 over the 710, the 710 is reeaally slow.

FWIW, I have several 710s in deployment and they perform fine. If you have a large user base then mayeb the 720 is needed, but I haven't seen any issues an 710 controllers with 10 APs hooked up with sometimes as many as 200 wireless connections current.

Sure they work fine in production but the web GUI is dead slow compared to 720 and TODAY I wouldnt buy a new 710, the price difference to 720 is pretty much nonexistent.
