limit # of users per ssid and/or load balance ssid
I have a unique situation in which there are times during the year where we will get 800+ guest users on the wireless network in a small area (approx 10,000 sq ft divided by walls/etc). There is also a high attendee population density in the area as well.
Is there a way to place a cap on how many users per ssid? and/or have users roll over to another ssid/subnet if the max # has been reached.
Unfortunately, all the users are in the same areas using the same radios, so AP group vlans will not work in my situation. In the past, we have have deployed "AP bombs", where we put out additional APs in the area to help with coverage and radio load, but that is only a partial solution. I like the idea of a univeral ssid, but perhaps the only thing I can think of is to put out the "AP bombs" and use ssid override with multiple ssids available for use. I appreciate any thoughts on the matter. Thanks
