Is it necessary to buy WLC to manage FAP?

I have some questions about FAP, I hope to be answered Are all FAP series capable of independent configuration management? Is it necessary to buy WLC to manage FAP?

Basically there are 3 different series.


FortiAP - Can be managed by FortiGate or by FortiCloud; Cannot be managed by WLC


FortiAP-U - This is the universal series, can be managed by FortiGate, FortiCloud, or WLC


Legacy Meru or 822/832 - Only managed by WLC (These are mostly being phased out as is the WLC)


Of the current products, none are solely managed by the WLC.
