I have a campus networks which consists of 5 buldings, which have respectively 9 MAs, 6 MAs, 8 MAs, 5 MAs, 1 MA. all MAs are Cisco 3850 switches.

I also have 2 WLC5760 that will be installed only in one of the building.

the buildings are connected together over an IP MPLS cloud.

is it possible to deploy a solution in which I use cisco 3850 MA in the branches and WLC5760 as the MC? meaning, I will not use cisco3850 as MC at the branch side.

I read somewhere that it is not recommended for the MAs and MCs to be connected over WAN. as per the below link.

https://blogs.cisco.com/enterprise/converged-access-branch-design-mc-over-wan

please advise me on how to build my setup. what is the correct design in my case.

thanks,

Basically it primarily comes down to CAPWAP traversing the WAN and client roaming between SPGs.

You really should follow Viten's direction here - he knows what he's doing :-)

As for the design recommendation, I'd put a MC at each site.  At the site with 1 MA that would also be the MC.
