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.

Change the SSID on WLAN devices
Change the SSID on WLAN devices. Command output on the CLI: [HUAWEI]wlan [HUAWEI-wlan-view]service-set name test [HUAWEI-wlan-service-set-test]ssid huawei If the SSID is in use and cannot be modified, unbind SSID invocation and change the SSID again.

What are the ESS, BSS, and SSID
SSID: service set identifier. ESS: extended service set, a group of all SATs in the same logical management domain. An ESS may contain multiple BSSs. BSS: basic service set, an area covered by an AP. Each BSS is identified by a BSSID. The simplest WLAN contains only one BSS, and all STAs are in the BSS. To enable the STAs to communicate, disable STA isolation.

How to isolate STAs associated with the same SSID of an AP
Huawei APs support local Layer 2 isolation. After Layer 2 isolation is enabled, local STAs cannot communicate at Layer 2, and data can only be transmitted between uplink ports and VAP ports. To enable Layer 2 isolation, configure it on an AC.
