MSM710 fast roaming included or do I need a license?

Hi,

when I buy a MSM710 Mobility Controller, will I be able to use the advanced fast roaming feature or will I have to install an additional license?

As I understand it I'd need this license only if I bought the Access Controller version of the MSM710.. is this correct?

Thank you,

Max

To support fast wireless roaming:
1-Disable the Access control option under Global.
2-Install a Mobility or Premium license on the controller.
3-All APs must be on the same layer 2 network.
4-All APs must have VSCs with the same name, SSID, and wireless protection settings.
5-Wireless protection must be WPA, or 802.1X authentication must be enabled.

Thanks,

But does this apply to the "Mobility Controller" version of the MSM710 as well? I checked the datasheet where it lists "advanced wireless roaming" as "included"

Mobility Controller is basically an Access Controller but with the extra license. So I think you understood it right.
