Would you like to make your network provisioning and management simpler? How do you feel about going against common convention? Like yoga for healthy living, a flexible strategy for the WLAN can be healthy for the enterprise.
When WLANs made the transition from fat access points to a controller-based architecture, there was a lot good to say about them but a fundamental flaw soon surfaced. All the traffic from the APs passed through the controller (“tunneling”). Yes, this provided for the expansion of features and capabilities, but it ensured that there was an unacceptable built-in latency imposed on all applications running on the WLAN.
