Max number of IAP105 and end user devices?

Greetings,

 

I am looking through some old internal documentation and have found a section which states that there can be no more that 64 access points per site with a maximum of 1024 devices connected.

 

This may have come from us using 650 controllers with AP105s historically.  We have since upgraded to IAP105s controlled by an Airwave platform.

 

Ignoring bandwidth limitations, does this still apply with the IAP 105?  While I cannot envisage exceeding 64 IAPs on a single site / VC, there may be a requirement to have more that 1024 end user devices, albeit not all connected at the same time, but may associate with the guest SSID.

 

If these limitations are still valid, what happens when device number 1025 attempts to connect?

 

TIA

Please post the documentation.  It does not seem familiar.

Cluster Limits for all platforms except IAP9x:
APs = 128
Clients = 2048
These are not hard set limits
Thank you

Thanks Victor. I have a couple of questions. 1. What happens if the cluster limit (either APs or clients) is breached? Is it simply that they will fail to connect? 2. Where did you find this information? Just so I can find it myself in the future should I need it again. TIA G

1) it will keep working, it just isn't advised

 

2) around there, not sure if there is an official document, these are loose guidelines mainly.
