I think the hardware limit is 256; but by default, there is a max associations set (on the SSID profile) for 64.  This can be changed to suit your needs (not often changed).   Think practically for your data clients, especially if there is also VoIP on the same AP.

 

For the VoIP clients, you can try using the bandwidth calculator on the controller to give you an idea of concurrent call support:   Configuration --> Bandwidth Calculator.  Input your specific protocols/codecs/etc.

Page 34-35. As  you can see Aruba's AP dies when there is more than 15 iPads on the wifi network.

That is not an accurate statement:  "Aruba APs die with more than 15 iPads on the wifi network".  I would also not put much stock into those results.   Why?  Two reasons come to mind after quickly reading throrugh that link:

 

- They used Aruba Instant with default configurations.  No controller.  No optimization settings.  Who knows what version of Instant.

- According to the end of that whitepaper, Aruba's APs were one of the only APs not configured by the vendor's SEs; meaning they just opened the box and threw up a network without tuning anything.

 

There are many real world cases that would easily dispute those findings (in a properly deployed environment).
