Hello, Gentlemen!

On a public bid we need to point on our official documents (DS, Guides, etc...) the number of VLANs supported for wireless.

Where can I find such number?  Already tried it hard...

Thank you very much!

For the controller you'd configure one VLAN per topology.

Here the table from the Getting Started Guide with the max numbers....

Without NAC / static VNS configuration you'd have up to 16 VLANs per AP as that is the max. of SSIDs per AP (bridge@AP scenario).

In theory if you use NAC you'd return a different role for every client which could result in a different topology so the same number as in the controller table would be possible.

But I'm not sure whether such AP scenario was tested in the lab.

Also it wouldn't make much sense (in my opinion) to have 254 clients (max per AP) connected to one AP and then put every client in a dedicated VLAN.
