As title said, can the 5Ghz radio broadcast client SSID as well when the 5Ghz radio is in used to form up a wireless bridging?
Test units in my lab are AP275 as mesh portal and AP274 as mesh point. I'm connected to 5ghz SSID which broadcasting by mesh point while the 5ghz bridging is forming. I always thought that when one of the radio forms the bridging, that radio will not able to serve the client SSID.
Kindly enlighten pls

In brief the answer is yes you can share 5GHz band for backhaul and client traffic.
From the user guide :
A mesh radio’s bandwidth can be shared between mesh-backhaul traffic and client traffic. You can, however,configure a radio for mesh services only.
If you configure a singleradio AP to deliver mesh services only (by disabling the mesh radio in its 802.11a or 802.11g radio profile) that mesh node can not deliver WLAN services to its clients.

How silly I am when this info can be found in UG..
Is that possible i can dedicate the mesh point serve client SSID in 2.4Ghz only while 5Ghz for bridging?
Would that be best practice as i don't shared the 5Ghz radio in between mesh backhaul traffic & client traffic?

Just turn off the 802.11a "radio enable" in RF management will do.
The "radio enable" indicates serve the client traffic together with mesh backhaul traffic.
If the "radio enable" is unchecked, it only serve mesh backhoul traffic.
Please correct me if I'm wrong.
