Simple Local Bridging Demo

  • In this very simple little demo, we are going to show how the Local Bridging mode can greatly improve network resilience and availability by taking the controller out of the data path

  • And these configuration steps are going to assume that we are building upon the previous configuration we had from our WPA2 Enterprise setup

  • By switching the Bridging Mode to Tunnel, we are mimicking the data path of a traditional “Thin AP” architecture, where all wireless traffic is tunneled through the controller

  • We are going to run a pseudo-real-time application and then see what happens when we pull the plug on the controller

  • Connect your wireless device to the WPA2 Enterprise wireless LAN that we’ve just created

  • And then open a web browser to http://www.c-span.org/Live-Video/C-SPAN/

  • Now, disconnect the controller’s UPLINK connection

  • Now let’s try the same thing, but this time we’ll configure the wireless LAN for local bridging

  • So reconnect the controller’s UPLINK to the network and make these configuration changes:

  • Now let’s disconnect the controller’s UPLINK connection again

  • A couple of notes about this demo:

    • You have to use 7131 or 6511 access points. 650 or 300 access points won’t work for this demo

    • You can’t directly connect the access point to the controller (i.e. connecting access points to the GE ports on a RFS4000 or RFS6000)
