Quick RAP question

I've never tried it so thought I'd ask a quick question......

 

Can a RAP-5 also be a mesh portal?

 

Customer has a working RAP-5 that broadcasts a secure tunneled SSID and a Split tunnel SSID that bridges guest users on their internet connection. They are now wanting to add just a couple AP's to get more coverage and would like to use MESH instead of running cable and buying a POE switch.

 

Anyone ever try that?

Re: Quick RAP question

A RAP-5 has a single radio - if it providing MESH services can it provide SSID services at the same time on the same radio?

Re: Quick RAP question

You could in theory, but you would separate client and mesh radios for performance reasons.
