Hi,

There is no much difference in terms of performance but a slight difference between the AP capacity.
Normally AP licenses on a switch are recommended in a small/medium branch but when it comes to head-office, it is generally recommended to go with either WLC as a card (in modular switches) or a separate entity so you can get specialized and better performance for large network through a dedicated device.
