WLAN Profile Name siginificance.

Hi all,

I'm fairly new to the Cisco WLAN architecture and am curious what siginificance the 'Profile Name' associated to an SSID has locally on the WLC?  We have 8 SSIDs all with unique profile names and, I believe, the profile name is only locally siginificant to distinguish between SSIDs that have the same name (with differing L2 security policies).

Is this correct? If not, can anyone tell me what other significance the profile name plays in the authentication/assocation of a client with a particular SSID.

Many Thanks

David,

     you are correct.  the profile name is so you can have a 'migration' ssid, where you use the same SSID, but have different security mechanisms for each one.
