Max WLAN's per AP Group

Hi ya,

does someone knows how many or maximim number of WLAN's (SSIDs) / VAP's per AP Group are supported?

Are they different depend on the Type of Controller?

Supported WLANs per AP group

The max that you are allowed to configure in ArubaOS 3.x and above is 16.

From a performance perspective, less is more; you don't want to broadcast more than 4 SSIDs if you can help it, to reduce the management traffic overhead. Attached is a document that was written awhile ago about broadcasting multiple SSIDs/BSSIDs and the effect on performance.
