If we wish to utilise the Aruba WC and AP support available with 10.2 , could anyone please advice how would the licensing be affected for Spectrum?
If we discover 4 WC which has 100 AP's as an example , would that consume 104 spectrum licenses ?

It's probably best to discuss with your CA Sales Rep for the details of licensing regarding your account, but this is the general licensing policy for APs:
- If the AP is SNMP capable, then it counts towards 1 device license
- If the AP is NON-SNMP capable (pingables), then for every 5 NON-SNMP APs will count towards 1 device license
For instance, in your example, lets say all AP's are SNMP-capable. Then Yes, 4 WLC + 100 AP = 104 licenses
However, lets say all AP's in your example are NON-SNMP - then 4 WLC + (100 AP / 5 = 20 AP) = 24 licenses
I hope that helps.
