Fast roaming using 802.11r requires a controller role to help formulate a set of keys. However, in standalone mode, the AP does not have this controller role, making it unsuitable. This is an inherent limitation of this feature.

Both Nebula cloud mode and AP controller mode have the controller role present, so Fast roaming can be implemented in both these modes.

Please refer to the 802.11k/v assisted roaming feature, which is supported in Standalone mode and all other management modes.
