Revised: August 28, 2014

What’s New: Updated Cisco ISE software version and the software versions for the Cisco 5508 and Flex 7500 Series WLCs.

The following tables highlight the hardware and software components used for validation testing in this design guide. While other software versions provide the required BYOD functionality, the Validated Software Version column indicates the software version used during the validation.

The three feature sets available with Cisco Catalyst 3850 Series Switches are:

  • LAN Base—The LAN Base feature set offers enhanced intelligent services that include comprehensive Layer 2 features with up to 255 VLANs. It does not support either the wireless Mobility Agent (MA) or the Mobility Controller (MC) function.
  • IP Base—Enterprise access Layer 3 switching features. The IP Base feature set provides entry-level enterprise services in addition to all LAN Base features with 1000 VLANs. IP Base also includes the support for wireless controller functionality (Mobility Agent (MA) and Mobility Controller (MC) role; additional access point license required for Mobility Controller role), routed access, smart operations, FNF, etc.
  • IP Services—The IP Services feature set provides full enterprise services that include advanced Layer 3 features such as EIGRP, OSPF, BGP, PIM, and IPv6 routing such as OSPFv3 and EIGRPv6. Also supports the wireless controller functionality.

All software feature sets support advanced security and MQC-based QoS.

Customers can transparently upgrade the software feature set in the Cisco Catalyst 3850 Series Switches through Cisco IOS Software CLI using the right to use (RTU)-based software upgrade process. Software activation enables the Cisco IOS Software feature sets. Based on the license’s type, Cisco IOS Software activates the appropriate feature set. License types can be changed, or upgraded, to activate a different feature set.

An access point license is required for Cisco Catalyst 3850 operating in Mobility Controller (MC) mode. No access point license is required for 3850 operating in Mobility Agent (MA) mode. This functionality is included in the IP Base feature set. Access point licenses can be transferred only between two Catalyst 3850 switches or between Catalyst 3850 switches and CT5760 wireless controllers and vice versa.

The Catalyst 3850 and CT 5760 running IOS XE 3.2.2 and higher software is compatible with CUWN software version 7.3.112 or 7.5 and higher—in order to support mobility interoperability.
