How many wireless clients will a Cisco LWAPP 521 hold

I am working at a client site today.  The client of ours has a large meeting Pavilion that they use for Group meetings.

Three years ago, I sold the client a solution consisting of a 526 WLC ( handles 6 LW APs ) and 6 521 LWAPP's.  We had excellent coverage in the meeting Pavilion, and decided we only needed to use 4 of the LWAPP's.

The client will be hosting a large group sometime in March.  The group could be as high as 300 members, each with some type of a wireless device.

I needed to check with the Forum and see if the current setup will be able to handle the amount of users.

So the question would be:  Would a WLC 526 with 4 LWAPP's be able to accomodate a group with a max of 300 wireless clients?

Thanks in advance.

I'd put up the other two AP, with only 4 your looking at 75 clients per AP if everyone just has one device.

Re: How many wireless clients will a Cisco LWAPP 521 hold

speaking from experience with functions this large, you really need to understand how the 300 attendees will utilize the wireless and understand the space.

If all attendees need to access the wireless at the same time I would be looking at 8 AP. 6 APs should suffice if access if given as nice to have offering.

What it really comes down too is understanding the usage requirements of the 300 attendees an the space you need to cover.
