about Aruba controler 's performance

HI everyone

 

As I know, 1 aruba 3200 can support 32 lAN-connected APs or 128 remote APs

 

If I have 100 APs to deploy in my office ,  does it means that,  once  I set these aps into RAP Mode,  just one aruba 3200 controller can support these 100 aps,?

 

Will  it  affect the  controller 's performance ?

Or Must I need to  use 4 aruba3200 to support these 100 aps ?

 

 

Thank you !

The 128 AP number for RAPs assumes that RAPs will have traffic that will be bridged or split tunneled, so they will not be sending all traffic to the controller like an AP deployed in your office.

 

You would need a 3600 controller to support 100 Campus APs.  It has a platform limit of 128 office-connected APs.
