The Economics of Cooperative Control Protocols are Free
sponsored by Aerohive Networks
WHITE PAPER: The key takeaway here is that inter-AP protocols are free, but controllers are not.

LOAD BALANCING DEFINITION (continued): …  Web sites get a great deal of traffic usually use load balancing. For load balancing Web traffic, there are several approaches. For Web serving, one approach is to route each request in turn to a different server host address in a domain name system (DNS) table, round-robin fashion. Usually, if two servers are used to balance a work load, a third server is needed to determine which server to assign the work to. Since load balancing requires multiple servers, it is usually combined with failover and backup services. In some approaches, the servers are distributed over different geographic locations. …
