Where in the network is the typical deployment of a WLAN controller, is this connected to a core switch? Can the managed access point be anywhere on the local network?

An Access Point is just that for your LAN. It will have an IP configuration within the scope of your LAN and allows wireless clients to access that LAN segment provided that the clients are also within that IP range of your LAN.

Therefore, you can "hang" an access point from any switch, whether core or decentralized (remote).

There is nothing "magical" about where it sits on your LAN.

And, the 3Com unit is in a similar fashion... it is not critical where it sits on your lan or what switch.

Convenience and location make up a good portion of it.

However, you will have less latency the closer you are to your core.
