We are using multiple types of APs at the moment, mostly 1815 and in some cases the 1852 and 2800 series. The model depends on the location and type of traffic. Most offices we built with 1815s are controlled by Mobility Express. For some warehousing, we are using 1852 Internal and External access points with directional antennas for great coverage. In the past, I built multiple warehouse networks based on the 2800 series with 5500 series WLCs.
1815s are perfect for deploying in offices as they have good coverage and a small form factor. For warehousing, we had to move to the 1852s as they have more power but are also a bit bigger. A good central management dashboard for the 55 (virtual) WLC would be great. As of now, we are managing all (virtual) WLC standalone. For baselining and updates, this takes a little bit more time than we wanted
