As presented at HEPiX Fall 2016, CERN is currently in the process of renewing its standalone Wi-Fi Access Points with a new state-of-the-art, controller-based infrastructure. With more than 4000 new Access Points to be installed, it is desirable to keep the existing deployment procedures and tools to avoid repetitive and error-prone actions during configuration and maintenance steps.
This presentation will dive into the new controller setup and will focus on the in-house software and workflows that power configuration automation for the new Wi-Fi infrastructure.
