    We have an Aruba Controller for APs (Hardware) but we want to increse our infraestructure with Instant On APs.

    Can we connect/integrate de Instant On APs with our network? Will we have roaming between all APs infraestructure?


    Thanks in advance,

    Data suggests: No and No.

    These are not mix and match. If you have an aruba controller, you need the matching (expensive!) APs.
    Obviously you can have 2 separate networks. one being Aruba Instanton  and the other being Aruba <whatever> but that way lies madness.

    Not that roaming seems to work at all, that probably needs the wifi driver support. (mentioning no names, playstation, yamaha, LG, canon printers ... ad nauseum.)

    Aruba Instant On is designed for Small Business and will not work with the Aruba Controller (designed for Enterprises).

    To expand your infrastructure with you Aruba Controller, consider one of the Enterprise models:
