Time and time again, Meraki support has told me that the recommended SSID is no more than 3. I've stepped into a multi-network environment that has a minimum of 8-10 ssids broadcasting. Im in the process of trying to plan some consolidations but I struggle with this as I can only easily get rid of maybe 1 or 2 so I'm thinking my best solution is a per-AP ssid broadcast using tags. But that'll only probably get me down to about 5 broadcasting. I work for a k-12, so the schools have a variety of functions and access levels (students, faculty, main district staff who need to be able to go from school to school, guests and mobile devices). Has anyone successfully done a 5+ SSID environment (successful in your opinion)?
Also, I have mostly MR42s and 34s(slowing upgrading to 42s).
Solved! Go to Solution.
I have 5 SSID's and am working to combine a couple to get down to 3. That being said, how or why do they 'need' 8 SSIDs?
I'm in a school environment also and cannot fathom why anyone would need that many.
