Understanding Mode Support

Most ArubaOS features are supported in all forwarding modes. However, there are some features that are not supported in one or more forwarding modes. Campus APsCampus APs are used in private networks where APs connect over private links (LAN, WLAN, WAN or MPLS) and terminate directly on controllers. Campus APs are deployed as part of the indoor campus solution in enterprise office buildings, warehouses, hospitals, universities, and so on. do not support split-tunnel forwarding mode and the decrypt-tunnel forwarding mode does not support TKIPTemporal Key Integrity Protocol. A part of the WPA encryption standard for wireless networks. TKIP is the next-generation Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) that provides per-packet key mixing to address the flaws encountered in the WEP standard.

Campus APs are deployed as part of the indoor campus solution in enterprise office buildings, warehouses, hospitals, universities, and so on. or remote APsRemote APs extend corporate network to the users working from home or at temporary work sites. Remote APs are deplyed at branch office sites and are connected to the central network on a WAN link..

Table 1 describes the features that are not supported in each forwarding mode.
