Number of SSID limitations and Key management for large deployments

Hello, first of all - I read this topic and propositions made there not working for my project.


I've got 3 floored building with 15-20 teams on each floor and every team consists of 10-20 members. I need to deploy a private WAN to every team and SSID so every team should be separated from others but members of teams should see each other over the lan and wi-fi.


I wasn't an architecture of this project and came when most of the network equipment was bought and now I faced this limitation's - only 15 SSID per network.

 

What should I do in this situation or maybe any similar use cases on how to manage such a system/demands with Meraki equipment?

PS: This solution in comment's looks like not working no more 😞

Hi

 

I hope that you are doing great.

 

Meraki allow just 15 SSID per deployment, bc it´s no recommended have alot of SSIDs in our enviroment.

More than we have Neighboor ssids and gathering those ssid with our ssids U will be causing a enviroment pollution that would affect your WLAN.

 

The best option that I think is to set Local Users on Meraki and using the spash page control them as a user and no by SSID. It´s best practice

Kind of a big deal

Re: Number of SSID limitations and Key management for large deployments

You should use a single SSID.

 

You should use a VLAN per group of users, and use WPA2-Enterprise mode and RADIUS to dynamically assign users to the correct VLAN.
