Controller uplink recommendations

    Is there a recommended uplink connection depending on the number of AP's on a controller?  I'm hearing a gig link per 100 AP's on a controller so I wanted to get some input if this is documented.

     

    Thanks,

    William

    Before 802.11n APs appeared Cisco was speaking of 25 APs per Gig...

    That is a decent rule of thumb.

    Thanks for the replies.  I'm monitoring traffic on my current links and may add a gig connection to high utilized links.
