WLC 4402 - AP Limit?

Hello All,

Although I am quite used to using the WLC 4402 and the attached APs, I have no knowledge about licensing and I'm wondering if it has a limited number of AP's that can be controlled by the WLC?  I'm not planning on adding 1000's but at the moment we have 21 and will probably be adding an additional 30 in the near future.  Any information will be greatly appreciated.  Thanks.

WLC 4402 - AP Limit?


From this link

Q. What is the maximum number of APs supported on the 4402 and 4404 wireless LAN controllers (WLCs)?

A. The limitation on the number of supported access points is based on the hardware that you have. The 4402 WLC with two gigabit Ethernet ports comes in configurations that support 12, 25, and 50 Light Weight Access Points (LAPs). The 4404 WLC with four gigabit Ethernet ports supports 100 LAPs.

Note: Mesh access points are also available in both indoor and outdoor deployments. For more information on number of access points (inlcuding mesh APs) supported on each controller model, refer to Table 8-3 Mesh Access Points Supported by Controller Model in the

Controlling Mesh Access Point section of the Wireless Lan Controller Configuration Guide 6.0.
