SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. and supported authentication and data rates. When a wireless client associates to an AP, it sends traffic to the AP’s BSSIDBasic Service Set Identifier. The BSSID identifies a particular BSS within an area. In infrastructure BSS networks, the BSSID is the MAC address of the AP. In independent BSS or ad hoc networks, the BSSID is generated randomly. which is usually the AP’s MACMedia Access Control. A MAC address is a unique identifier assigned to network interfaces for communications on a network. address.

In the Aruba network, an AP uses a unique BSSIDBasic Service Set Identifier. The BSSID identifies a particular BSS within an area. In infrastructure BSS networks, the BSSID is the MAC address of the AP. In independent BSS or ad hoc networks, the BSSID is generated randomly. for each WLANWireless Local Area Network. WLAN is a 802.11 standards-based LAN that the users access through a wireless connection., so each individual AP or AP group can support multiple WLANWireless Local Area Network.
