Cisco Wireless SSID broadcast restriction

Dear Team,

 

I have 12 Cisco 3602 access point and 2 Cisco 5508 WLC with HA. I want to create one new SSID which i do not need to broadcast in all pf my access point. I need to broadcast this SSID only with 3 of my access point. Kinldy advise, how will I achieve this.

 

Regards,

You'll need to create TWO

You'll need to create TWO distinct SSID.  One with broadcasting SSID and the other don't.  

 

Don't see any benefits of hiding your SSID because a lot of free WiFi sniffers/scanners can unmask the hidden SSID very quickly.

Hello Jubair, Yes, you can

Hello Jubair,

 
Yes, you can create new SSID and limit them to only 3 APs
 
For this
 
1.  you have to create new WLAN profile for seperate SSID name
    
     WLANs > Create New > Go
 
2.  you have to create new group and then add all those APs in this group which you want to assign new SSID
     and call newly created profile in this group as well, that's it.
    
     WLANs > Advanced > AP Groups > Add Group
