IAP Cluster size when user & management VLAN is the same

  • 1.  IAP Cluster size when user & management VLAN is the same

    Hi All,

     

    I'm aware that when deploying IAPs that it's recommended to use a separate VLAN for AP management. If you're unable to do this and must use the same VLAN for user & AP management traffic, does this affect the max concurrent users & max cluster size significantly?


    Are there any numbers on this?

     

    Cheers

    James

    I'm sure it does - but can't give you any actual data to support my thoughts.

     

    I used to have three iAP on my home network, and packet-collisions when my kids were gaming occasionally broke VC to slave communication and I'd see the iAP argue over control. Moved to a better switch where I could break out the VLANs and haven't had the issue since.
