APs using different channels for the same SSID

Hi,

This might be a stupid question, but I am wondering why my Aironet 1602i and 2602i access points connected to the same controller would use different channels for the same network. Would this be to avoid interference? If so, I am planning to put 9 access points throughout the office and they will be fairly close to each other. Would this increase the risk of interference?

Thanks,

Tibet

That is normal. The WLC is determining the best channel and being in different channels is the best. When you add more, the WLC will decide by the use if RRM what channels and power levels to allocate to each AP.
