I'm deploying a new WIFI infrastructure using MR74 (50 Aps) in my warehouse. Currently I 've another wifi solution witch other manufacture. I would like to know if is possible to use two solution in parallel while the migration plan.
I know the interference but I'm planning to use 2.4Ghz with one manufacture and 5.0Ghz with Meraki and additional add to white-list the SSIDs in my Meraki network.
I'm going to appreciate your comments and suggestions
Ensure you dont have channel overlap, also worth labeling your SSIDs different names to know which network is which until migration complete. Defiantly ensure air marshal white-lists the old SSID to ensure clients can connect both (as mentioned above).
Do yourself a favor and minimize the time both networks are running. Clients won't always roam as expected between different SSIDs. Once you start, prioritize the Meraki installation so you can turn the older one off asap.
