Converged Access Branch Design (MC over WAN)

- July 22, 2015 - 0 Comments

“Why can’t I have MC across a WAN boundary to manage multiple branch MA?”
I get this question a lot. I get asked if it isn’t logical to have the MC at a central location across a WAN boundary managing multiple MA at different branch locations. Sometimes it’s hard to comprehend this architectural construct for folks who are migrating from the centralized WiFi world and I totally get their confusion around this subject.

It’s very crucial to get the design fundamentals right for any technology or architecture. So is the case with Converged Access.
In this video I cover some of the major factors due to which MC across a WAN boundary is an unsupported configuration.
