Which unified access point mode continues to serve wireless clients after losing connectivity to the Cisco Wireless LAN Controller?
Click on the arrows to vote for the correct answerA. B. C. D.
In previous releases, whenever a FlexConnect access point disassociates from a controller, it moves to the standalone mode.
The clients that are centrally switched are disassociated.
However, the FlexConnect access point continues to serve locally switched clients.
When the FlexConnect access point rejoins the controller (or a standby controller), all clients are disconnected and are authenticated again.
This functionality has been enhanced and the connection between the clients and the FlexConnect access points are maintained intact and the clients experience seamless connectivity.
When both the access point and the controller have the same configuration, the connection between the clients and APs is maintained.https://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/wireless/controller/7-4/configuration/guides/consolidated/b_cg74_CONSOLIDATED/
The correct answer is C. flexconnect.
FlexConnect is a feature on Cisco Wireless LAN Controllers that allows Cisco access points (APs) to continue serving wireless clients even if they lose connectivity to the Wireless LAN Controller (WLC). In FlexConnect mode, APs can perform the majority of their functions locally, such as authenticating clients and forwarding traffic, without needing constant communication with the WLC.
In FlexConnect mode, the APs can maintain the same SSIDs, VLAN mappings, and security policies as when they were connected to the WLC. This means that clients can seamlessly continue to connect and use the Wi-Fi network without interruption, even if the AP loses connectivity to the WLC.
The other answer options are:
A. Local mode: In local mode, the APs require constant communication with the WLC and do not have the ability to continue serving wireless clients if they lose connectivity to the WLC.
B. Mesh mode: Mesh mode is used when APs are interconnected wirelessly to create a mesh network, but it does not provide the ability to continue serving wireless clients if they lose connectivity to the WLC.
D. Sniffer mode: Sniffer mode is used for troubleshooting and packet capturing purposes and does not serve wireless clients.
Therefore, the correct answer to the question is C. FlexConnect mode.
