The popularity of wireless local area networks (WLANs) has led to
widespread deployments across different establishments.  It has also
translated into an increasing scale of the WLANs.  Large-scale
deployments made of large numbers of wireless termination points
(WTPs) and covering substantial areas are increasingly common.

The Wireless LAN Control Protocol (WiCoP) described in this document
allows for the control and provisioning of large-scale WLANs.  It
enables central management of these networks and realizes the
objectives set forth for the Control And Provisioning of Wireless
Access Points (CAPWAP).  This document defines a Historic Document for 
the Internet community.
