How to assign wlans to only groups of APs in controllers

Unanswered Question
May 21st, 2008

I understand that with wireless controller, all APs registered to that controllers will support all the WLANs created in that controllers. If I only want a selected group of APs (not all) to support only a WLAN, is there any way?

In short, does the wireless controller support assigning WLANs to APs instead of having all APs being assigned all WLANs created?

Appreciate if you guys can share how you do that?

Go to Wireless, in the left select the All APs -> the radio you want this feature on. You see the list of all your APs radios for the selected spectrum. Select 1 AP, choose configure, and select in the bottom left WLAN override: the list of all configured SSIDs on your controller appear. Click the SSIDs you want this AP to support on this radio, the SSIDs left unclicked will not be supported.

You can scale this from WCS by creating a template and deploying it to the APs you want.

thanks, Jerome. In this case, the auto-rf algorithm may not be effective for this wlan since the RF domain that these few selected APs are part of is in the same RF domain of the rest of the APs. Is that right?

Well, auto-RF is about radio, not SSID. So Auto-RF will be functional, no matter how many SSIDs are supported on each radio. As soon as interferences will be detected, Auto-RF will be triggered.

WLAN override overrides SSIDs, but the APs are still controlled by the same controller and therefore part of the same Auto-RF group...
