AP, WiSM module and 6500 switch

Hi guys,

1.How many WiSM modules can be installed in a 6500 switch?

2.A module can support 300 APs. How many APs a 6500 switch with WiSM modules can support?

3.How many APs in a cluster that some 6500 switches with WiSM modules can support?

Thanks,

yytellmey

Re: AP, WiSM module and 6500 switch

1. I believe a 6509 can handle 5 WiSMs, though I've found 4 more realistic when considering the need for uplinks and service modules.

2. Based on 5 WiSMs, you can have 1500 per chassis. Again, I tend to stick with 4, or 1200 APs per chassis.

3. There is no hard limit that I am aware of. WCS on a VERY high-end server can handle ~2500 APs when running Linux WCS. As with the above, this works well with 1 WCS per 2 chassis if each has 4 WiSMs.

Thanks Eric. It is extremely helpful.

BTW, could you please review the question "antennas verification on 1200 AP" in " Wireless General"?

Thanks,
