SSID limitation

Just FYI I'm from a cloudtrax/openemesh background

Also I have only 1 unit to trial so may not have the full picture.

 

We have 20+ construction sites.

Each site has 3 unique SSIDS - ClientXXX, StaffXXX, GuestXXX

XXX is a unique identifier for the site.

A 4th SSIS is common to them all - Tech but is hidden

 

I cannot see a way to replicate this in Meraki

It looks like we're restricted to 15 SSIDs.

I've created 2 networks but the SSID options remain the same regardless which network I choose.

Am I correct in my understanding and we're limited to 15 SSIDs for the organisation?

Can this be increased - I don't need 15 SSIDS per location, but I need more than 15 SSID company wide.

 

Thanks

15 SSIDs per network. you should be able to editt/create them for each network.

 

Did you maybe clone the network or attach it to a template that sets the ssid?

Combined Dashboard Networks

 

This may suit your organisational/network  structure.

So:  yes, one Network per site...   Not just because you then get 15 SSIDs for each site, but also:

A Network can only be in one time zone -   if you have lots of APs in different countries, you will probably want accurate local time for each.

If you ever want to deploy the MX Security / VPN / SD-WAN appliance, you can only have one MX active in any single Network in Dashboard.    (MR + MX and maybe MS switches too, all together, then suggests use of Combined Networks, per site, as @Uberseehandel mentioned)
