Dear all, I have deployed WiSM to my customer place where there are 9 floors in the building & has got 270 Aps throuout the building. Now customer is asking me to broadcast the non-broadcasted SSID to a particular floor. Any body has any clue ? I have tried with WLAN override but it does not work. I hope u have got it, actually client ssid is not broacasted througout the building now customer is asking this ssid to be broadcasted to specific area.

now either i hv to enable this ssid for broadcast on controllers & on each Aps I have to disable this ssid except Aps where I want this ssid to be broadcasted. Only 5 Ap are there on which this ssid should be broadcasted.If I use wlan override feature then I have to go to 265 AP & disbale that ssid for not broadcasting which very time consuming job & not scalable also. Do u know any other way to achieve this.

Hi NK,

The most popular way to mitigate the problem of having to access each AP individually (when using WLAN Override) is to use WCS Templates for common requirement AP's. This way the WLAN Override function can be applied at the Template level and then pushed out to the various groups.


Hope this helps!
