today, I would like to share the Cisco Mobility Express AP and Prime Infrastructure TIP.

for several year, PI was upgraded in many parts.

especially, stability and user interface were very very improved.

and recently, Mobilty Express AP was released.

this AP is different from previous autonomous AP at user interface and operating system.

now small AP can do Wireless Controller role! even its ability is limited but good enough in small business.

anyway, because this AP target to small business, some features does not supported in GUI interface.

so, you should configure some advanced features in CLI interface.

+add    : Cisco Mobility Express has two role in one hardware. one is controller and the other is access point.

before getting start, you should connect this Access Point to Switch that could reachable to Gateway.
