As I am preparing for an uprade to a high density area using Cisco equipment, I am looking to implement 802.11ac. I must future proof this project for 5 years. With wave 2 on the horizon and wave 1 in the books, utilizing ac for this deployment made sense.
Or so it would seem……
I, like many others am facing the challenge of preparing my infrastructure for supporting the 3700.
Here is my environment today:
WLC 7.4 (& 7.0)
I will be upgrading my PI to 1.4 first, installing patch 1.4.1. Then, upgrade MSE to 7.6 and finally my WLCs to 7.6 (starting with a single controller for just the 3700 APs).
This upgrade path will allow us to have minimal impact to clients an begin supporting the new 3700 AP. However, many undocumented features (bugs) have been seen with the 7.6 WLC code. Many not yet ID’d by Cisco yet.
I hope to share these challenges in this post as I work through them and will keep you updated on the progress.
