Design: different AP Groups for different SSIDs?!

Imagine I have different requirements for the AP Groups for different SSIDs

I suppose I can't have different AP Groups for different SSIDs?!

Imagine I have to many Clients to use one single VLAN for one SSID. So I will use AP Groups.

For SSID”X”

Let's say I have 5 buildings with 800 Users, so I make a AP Group per Building and tell those APs that they are in that group.

For SSID”Y”

All though I have this SSID also in all 5 buildings, I only have very view Users, so I could make one single VLAN which makes everything easier.

Am I obligated now to create 5 VLANs for SSID”Y” too?!

*This is a made up example. In reality I would make different numbers of AP Groups for different SSIDs because I have significantly different number of Clients… and traffic characteristics (more or less broadcast).

But it's also about the size of the VLANs, do I make a view large Broadcast Domains (VLANs) or more small ones.

Greetings, Andi

Re: Design: different AP Groups for different SSIDs?!

You can have a setup like this if you want:

AP Group 1

SSID X Vlan 10

SSID Y Vlan 21

SSID Z Vlan 31

AP Group 2

SSID X Vlan 10

SSID Y Vlan 22

SSID Z Vlan 31

AP Group 3

SSID X Vlan 10

SSID Y Vlan 23

SSID Z Vlan 32

AP Group 4

SSID X Vlan 10

SSID Y Vlan 24

SSID Z Vlan 32

AP Group 5

SSID X Vlan 10

SSID Y Vlan 25

SSID Z Vlan 33

AP Group 6

SSID X Vlan 10

SSID Y Vlan 26

SSID Z Vlan 33

Here is a link, which you probably already saw.
