How Many WLANs (ESSID) can be Set and Mapped on the WS5000 Series Switch? How Many AP's can be managed on the WS5000 Series Switch? How Many VLANS can be Set and Mapped on the WS5000 Series Switch?

Answer

  • You can assign 16 WLANS to an 802.11b radio.
  • You can assign 16 WLANS to an 802.11g radio only if those WLANS are configured in different access port policies.
  • There can only be up to 16 WLANS in one access port policy.
  • In general the WS5000 support a maximum of 80 WLANS and 32 access port policies.
  • You can map a WLAN to one VLAN only, therefore there is a maximum of 80 VLANS if you utilize and activate all 80 WLANS and use mapping one to one.
