Re: AP-I 205- as a controller

Ohad is speaking about InstantAP version = iAP-205

 

In a single cluster there can be up to 2000 devices with the lastest firmware as far i know.  Is not a hard limit but is recommended.

 

 

Just in AP 9x model the cluster is limited to 254 devices per cluster, but your AP is a 225 so you should be good to go!, you got the AP with the best CPU RAM of all Aruba APs.

 

  • How many Instants APS you can connect together?

There is no limit as such, but the number of IAPs in that Instant network, managed by a single virtual controller, depends on the RF and also the client density.

Yes, you can use a single VC as long as your client ip space can handle the number of users.

There is no hard limit.Yes , you can.

 

90 Units on 1 VC of iAP-205 will work,  there is no limit - it's all depandeds on amount of traffic & control .
