Maximum number of Clients supported on Instant ON AP?

By default, Instant On has the Maximum Clients threshold configured as 64 per Radio of a Network.

To be more clear, in 2.4 Ghz 64 clients can be connected and in 5 Ghz 64 clients can be connected per Network.

Totally 128 clients can be connected per Network.

When the max clients threshold limit exceeds on an AP, the AP will send a deuath to the exceeding client.

Example:

When the 65th client is trying to connect to the BSSID/Radio, Client will receive a deauth from the AP with the reason "Resource constrained". This deauth reason indicates that the max clients threshold is exceed for that AP. This can be validated only by the TAC / Support team on the Backend.

Re: Maximum number of Clients supported on Instant ON AP?

Could I double check this - Is this the number of connected clients per SSID Per Access Point? Or the total number of connected Clients per Site?

For example, if I had 25 Access Points in a site would the total number of clients across those 25 Access Points be 128 Clients?

Or would it be 128 clients per ssid per access point? If I had one SSID on 25 Access Points would it allow 128 clients per access point for a total of 4,700 clients on the site?

I am curious about the answer to this question.
If you have 25 APs per site and the maximum number of clients supported per 64 radios is a serious problem.
64 people per network is too small.
