Q:

Do you need additional licenses for the 5508 WLC? Posting shows "38021" WAPs, did you possibly mean 3802i, or 3802e? Will line installation need to be included for these 20 WAPs?

A:

 

No we do not need a quote for additional licenses for our wireless controllers.

Yes, that is a typo.  The model we need is  3802i
