    Software Versions:

    Cisco WLC 5508 version 7.0.220 AP1130/1230/1240/1140/1250/1260/3500 Ascom i62, v2.3.11

    Known issues

    If AP 1140/1250/1260/3500 is used together with AP1230 or AP1240, the system must be configured to use a Beacon Interval of 102tu*. This is due to a limitation in 1140/1250/1260/3500 that prevents the APs from sending beacons with the interval of100tu. *) Beacon period is configured in time units (tu). One time unit equals 1024microseconds

    Compatibility information All tests were done on AP3502I and AP3502E (Internal and external antennas) and with AP1242. By testing AP3502 and AP1242 we cover the two chipset types used by cisco. We therefore ensure compatibility/interoperability with all the access points listed below given that they run the software tested. Supported access points with Cisco WLC version 7.0.220: AP1130 AP1230 AP1240 AP1140 AP1250 AP1260 AP3500 Supported controller platforms with Cisco WLC version 7.0.220: 21xx WLC 440x WLC 550x WLC WISM (Wireless services module) 3750G Integrated WLC

    General conclusion Overall the outcome of interoperability verification, including association, authentication and roaming produced good results. If U-APSD shall be used in the handset it is very important that the WMM parameters in the Cisco WLC are set correctly since U-APSD handles a bi-directional data stream where the up and downlink must be transmitted within the same EDCA Access Category. To use U-APSD, make sure to set QoS to Platinum for the current WLAN profile and set WMM to Allowed. Also set EDCA profile for 802.11b/g to "Voice Optimized" and disable low latency MAC.

    APPENDIX A: TEST CONFIGURATIONS

    Cisco WLC 5508 Version 7.0.220 In the following chapter you will find screenshots and explanations of basic settings in order to get a Cisco WLC WLAN system to operate with an Ascom i62. Please note that security settings were modified according to requirements in individual test cases.

    Security settings (PSK) Example of how to configure the system for PSK (WPA2-AES)

    Security profile WPA2-PSK, AES encryption

    PEAP-MSCHAPv2 using an external authentication server. Example of how to configure the system for .1X authentication

    Configuration of authentication using external Radius sever, 802.1X (Step 1). In this example is WPA2-AES/CCMP used.

    Configuration of authentication using external Radius sever (Step 2). Select the server to use. The server is configured under tab Security/Radius. See configuration of server below.

    Configuration of authentication using external Radius sever (Step 3). The IP address and the secret must correspond to the IP and the credential used by the Radius server. Tests were performed with FreeRadius. Note. Depending on which Authentication method used it might be necessary to add a certificate into the i62. PEAP-MSCHAPv2 requires a Root certificate and EAP-TLS requires both a Root certificate and a client certificate. Note. Refer to the i62 section in
