Simple question

Hi there,

Could you explain this for me:

We have three SSIDs, the first is for our corporate devices, the second is for student devices and the third one is for guest devices. These three SSIDs are broadcasted on the same channel on each radio. Say channel 36 on radio 0 and channel 11 on radio 1. 


My question: If a slow device is connected on the Student SSID, Could this affect my corporate devices connected on Corporate SSID?


Best regards,


Guru Elite

Re: Simple question

Yes. Wireless is a shared medium. All SSIDs on an AP in the same band will share airtime.
