Configure multiple SSIDs for a WLAN

10

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.

Can SSIDs of WLANs be the same
You can configure the same SSID, but STAs usually identify it as the same network.

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.

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.

Configure hidden SSIDs
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.
