How many devices can be connected to a single Access point?

Hello, recently I moved from DAS planing (indoor cellular) to wifi planning and I have a question for Access point user capacity, you see the datasheet says it can handle 250 devices however I talked to many designers and they said most AP can handle between 30-50 devices, now I need to know how many devices I can connect to achieve a target of 8Mbps / device (I need a solid formula to convince my customer) , can you help me?

Are you looking for a specific model of AP or just a generic explanation?

It all depends on the AP model. We try to limit ours to 60 devices per radio.
