Controllerless Networks

New Contributor


Hi All,

I am reconfiguring my network so that all IAPs are managed from single web intereface (only virtual controller), using either dynamic vlan or vlan pool


My question is how many 103 i can connect in the same network and what are the disadvantages.

Re: IAP 103 MAX

The Instant cluster limit is 100 APs, but the IAP-103 is not high end so it may not be suitable to be the Virtual controller in such a large network..  How many did you have to deploy?

Thank you for your response.

Re: IAP 103 MAX

If you design properly, I would expect 35 IAP-103's in a cluster to work.
