I have a Cisco Wireless Lan Controller in version 126.96.36.199, and AP's Cisco AP1010 .
I created 5 WLANs for different services in my corporate network.
I need to create more 3 WLANs for other services, and i am in doubt about the ability of the controller and Ap's to support this load.
There any best practices or some maximum number of WLANs by AP or Controller?
Each SSID you add to your WLAN you use medium for managment frames. No big deal right?
When you only have 1 or 2 APs no bid deal. But when you have 10+ access points that your client can see and you have lower data rates enabled you will have higher channel utilization.
Do this ... take 1 AP put 1 ssid and then add another and another ... Run an analyzer and check out your utilization. I've had customers who have 40%+ channel untilization with no traffic, just managment frames.
I try to keep my SSIDs to 5 and disable the lower data rates.
