Configure hidden SSIDs

7

Configure hidden SSIDs.
Command output on the CLI:
[HUAWEI]wlan
[HUAWEI-wlan-view]service-set name test
[HUAWEI-wlan-service-set-test]ssid-hide
Unhide the SSID by running the undo ssid-hide command.
Note:
After SSID hiding is enabled, users need to manually set required parameters to allow STAs to connect to the network. The configurations take effect only after being delivered to APs.

Configure multiple SSIDs for a WLAN
Configure multiple SSIDs for a WLAN. One SSID indicates a wireless signal for users. All the ACs and APs can be configured with multiple SSIDs, that is, one device can send multiple radio signals. Configuration: 1. Add a new service set (New WLAN-BSS/WLAN-ESS interfaces must be added.), and configure parameters such as the SSID. 2. Invoke this service set in the AP radio. 3. A single radio can invoke multiple service sets. Different radios can invoke the same service set (applicable to the AC). Note: - Creating new wireless networks has no effect on existing networks. - Each service set can be configured with different parameters such as encryption and authentication. - Each service set maps one VLAN, namely, one address pool and one IP address segment. - Do not reuse the service set on 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz frequency bands when configuring multiple SSIDs for Fat APs.

Configure different SSIDs with different rights
Configure different SSIDs with different rights. Each SSID maps one service VLAN. To restrict the access permission of different SSIDs, configure it on the Layer 3 device in the VLAN.

Does an AP configured with multiple SSIDs support the same number of access users as an AP configured with one SSID
Yes. An AP configured with multiple SSIDs supports the same number of access users as an AP configured with one SSID.

What is SSID
SSID 1. SSIDs identify different wireless networks. For example, when you search for available wireless networks on your laptop, the displayed wireless network names are SSIDs. 2. Different devices can be configured with the same SSID, but different BSSIDs, that is, the MAC address. 3. BSSID is the mapping of an AP's MAC address. 4. If multiple SSIDs are the same, you can check whether APs are configured with the same SSID. Fat APs and ACs also share different SSIDs. 5. SSIDs are configured in a service set, and each one maps one service VLAN. If there are multiple address pools or VLANs, add a new service set.

Does a single-radio AP configured with multiple SSIDs support the same number of access users as an AP configured with one SSID
Yes, an AP configured with multiple SSIDs supports the same number of access users as an AP configured with one SSID.
