Mesh Portal, Mesh Point Question

Hello's

I'd like to create a mesh network with the Mesh point providing bridging as follows.

  • Create an IAP cluster of 6 IAP's all located in one Warehouse space
  • Disconnect one of the IAP's from the cluster and deploy it as a Meshpoint that is also providing bridging functions via it's Eth0

 

Here are my questions.

  1. Do I understand correctly from documentation that any of the remaining IAP's in the cluster can become a Mesh portal?
  2. If above is correct and the Mesh Point IAP is moving around the WareHouse, does this mean that the Mesh Point IAP could connect to a different MeshPortal based on proximity and other connect factors? This would be ideal as the MeshPoint will be moving around.

 

Thanks much,

1M

  1. Do I understand correctly from documentation that any of the remaining IAP's in the cluster can become a Mesh portal? Yes if the IAP is wired
  2. If above is correct and the Mesh Point IAP is moving around the WareHouse, does this mean that the Mesh Point IAP could connect to a different MeshPortal based on proximity and other connect factors? This would be ideal as the MeshPoint will be moving around. This is correct
Thank you

Thanks for your quick reply. I'll be testing this tomorrow and wanted to get the question out there prior.

HI,

 

Before that, ensure that the extended SSID is disabled otherwise mesh will not work in IAP and IAP 92/93 will not support mesh functionality.
