Hello, a client of mine would like to use one of his 7363 APs to a remote location in a different country (my clients company has quite a few branches abroad). He has enquired whether he can join the AP to the already existent controller (I know this works through vpn if the latency is under 100ms) but also he wants to know whether he can route the wireless traffic using the branch local internet connection and use the vpn only for registering/authenticating with the ZD. Is this possible?
It depends on the how you route the traffic at the AP side, but normally that's the way things work. By default data traffic does not pass through the ZD unless instructed to do so. Authentication is usually done via ZD. It can be done at AP, but usually not.
So you can go ahead and tell your client all systems are go.
