Technical Summary

   The Control And Provisioning of Wireless Access Points (CAPWAP) 
   Protocol defines an extensible protocol to allow an Access Controller 
   to manage wireless agnostic Wireless Termination Points.  The CAPWAP 
   protocol itself does not include any specific wireless technologies, 
   but instead relies on binding specification to extend the technology 
   to a particular wireless technology.

   This specification defines the Control And Provisioning of Wireless
   Access Points (CAPWAP) Protocol Binding Specification for use with
   the IEEE 802.11 Wireless Local Area Network protocol.
