Q:

What is the max limit for the wired users on E1 port in Instant APs? 

How many wired users are supported on IAP downlink ports? 



A:

For untrusted port, the maximum user is 128. 

Starting from Instant 6.5.0.0-4.3.0.0, the enhancements, port type and trusted are made in the Instant UI and the CLI, respectively. These parameters support the trusted ports in an IAP. 

Ports with trusted mode, will have no limit for the client count, we have tested up to 1K clients.

The trusted mode configuration supports trusted ports to enable wired users in an L3 mode to connect to a switch or a router that is connected to the downlink port of an IAP. In this mode, mac authentication, dot1x, and captive-portal parameters will not take any effect.
