    Posted Apr 13, 2018 11:50 AM

    We are considering installing Aruba 305 IAPs to replace our current HP/H3C APs. I have some questions on limits - what is the limit of the number of 305 IAPs that can run without problems on a virtual controller?

     

    Also, what is the limit of the number of IAPs that can be managed in Airwave running on a VM? 

     

    Thank you, Airheads for your help!

    Check out the below tool on ASE to assist with Airwave sizing for your virtualized environment:

    For IAP cluster size, there is not enforced limit to the number of IAPs that can be in one cluster. For general deployments, I try to stay less than 100 IAPs in a single cluster, but that is not a set maximum.

    Thank you for providing this. I think it will prove to be very helpful in sizing the Airwave server, as we are an SMB and some of the requirements we had previously seen seemed too high.

    There is no hard limit according to the VRD, Aruba has tested up to 128.
