Maximum number of APs per site?

    Is there any upper limit to the amount of devices (APs/Switches) allowed per site?

    We have a site thats due for a refresh, and I'm proposing the AIO AP and perhaps the switches too if the price is right.

    Hi @johzua 
    The devices that can be managed on each site is 25 at max. Including the new solution, switch, if you want to deploy any number of switch with or w/ AP, it must be not more than 25.

    What happens if I want to go beyond 25 APs? Just create another site?
    Are there any limit to the number of sites?

    @johzua Yes create another site and you can support up to 150 sites per the main account.

    Is the definition of a "site" just arbitrary?  Or is that validated in some way by the cloud controller.  For example, if I have multiple buildings that I want to make each a "site" - but they all connect via underground fiber (L2 trunks) to a "core" building and then go out to the internet from there -- all NATing to the same IP address.  Does the cloud controller see that they're all coming from the same IP and set its maximum 25 limit per site based on that?  Or is it strictly just an administrative limitation and I can define a "site" however I see fit regardless of what public IP it NATs to?

    Hi,

     so we need design to minimalizing switch AIO to get much AccessPoint because it is limit 25 devices (AP + Switch). 
    is there any design for schools bulding, 1st+2nd floor site A, and 3rd+4th floor site B, is the roaming run smooth between each site where using external captive portal (student login page)?

    Best regards,
    Feri​

    Feri different sites means different VLAN's and you typically would not do this in a school between floors as you would have to reauthenticate between sites. Here is the deployment guide for Instant ON.

    For this size network, you could use our Instant AP's

    Hi!
    But if the switch is in local management mode, it won't be counted?

    Only devices in the cloud portal will be counted.
