Vlan pooling

Hi, can someone please tell me how to configure the vlan pooling. I have one controller acting as a default gateway and four switches connected to the controller. The plan is to configure one ssid for over 1000 users

Re: Vlan pooling

The basic definition of VLAN pooling is to:


- Define two or more user VLANs within the controller

- Put two or more of those VLANs into the Virtual AP parameter so that users are load balanced into those VLANs.


There is nothing more to it than that.

Re: Vlan pooling



Please check this Validated Reference Design document about the possibilities of using a single VLAN instead of VLAN pooling: http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Validated-Reference-Design/Single-VLAN-Architecture-for-WLAN/ta-p/257196


In many cases VLAN pooling is the less desirable solution.
