Enhancements to WLAN SSID Configuration

Instant 8.4.0.0 introduces support for configuration of up to 32 SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. profiles for cluster-based Instant APs. When an SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. profile is created, an access rule with the same name is created.

Pre-Authentication and Post-Authentication Role

When you configure captive-portal authentication, two post-authentication ACLsAccess Control List. ACL is a common way of restricting certain types of traffic on a physical port. with the same and a pre-authentication role are created in the Instant AP datapath. Therefore, you cannot drastically increase the count of the SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. profile.

Mapping WLAN Index and Virtual AP

Prior to the introduction of this enhancement, the mapping method of WLANWireless Local Area Network. WLAN is a 802.11 standards-based LAN that the users access through a wireless connection. SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. profile and virtual AP was determined by the WLANWireless Local Area Network. WLAN is a 802.11 standards-based LAN that the users access through a wireless connection. index. But this mapping method is not supported when 32 SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. profiles are configured. To support this mapping, Instant introduces the advanced-zone feature. The benefit of this feature is that the same ESSIDsExtended Service Set Identifier. ESSID refers to the ID used for identifying an extended service set. can be broadcast on Instant APs that are part of the same Instant AP zone in a cluster.

 

When the advanced-zone feature is enabled and a zone is already configured with 16 SSIDsService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network., ensure to remove the zone from two WLANWireless Local Area Network. WLAN is a 802.11 standards-based LAN that the users access through a wireless connection. SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. profiles if you want to disable extended SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network.. This action can be performed only when extended SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. is disabled.

You can configure the advanced-zone feature by using the CLICommand-Line Interface. A console interface with a command line shell that allows users to execute text input as commands and convert these commands to appropriate functions..

In the CLI

(Instant AP)# advanced-zone

Extended SSID

When extended SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. is disabled, the maximum count of zones in an SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. profile reduces to 14. This is because, the first two virtual APs are reserved for mesh. The show ap debug network-bssid command displays the mapping relationship between WLANWireless Local Area Network. WLAN is a 802.11 standards-based LAN that the users access through a wireless connection. SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. profile and virtual APs.

DPI

DPIDeep Packet Inspection. DPI is an advanced method of network packet filtering that is used for inspecting data packets exchanged between the devices and systems over a network. DPI functions at the Application layer of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) reference model and enables users to identify, categorize, track, reroute, or stop packets passing through a network. manager gathers session data periodically from the Instant AP datapath. Data is chunked every time a CLICommand-Line Interface. A console interface with a command line shell that allows users to execute text input as commands and convert these commands to appropriate functions. command is executed to display per-AP statistics. It shows a complete cluster view that can display appsShort form for application. It generally refers to the application that is downloaded and used on mobile devices., appShort form for application. It generally refers to the application that is downloaded and used on mobile devices. category, web category, and web reputation. To show a per-SSID view display, users must collect DPIDeep Packet Inspection. DPI is an advanced method of network packet filtering that is used for inspecting data packets exchanged between the devices and systems over a network. DPI functions at the Application layer of the Open Systems Interconnection (OSI) reference model and enables users to identify, categorize, track, reroute, or stop packets passing through a network. manager’s statistics data from an Instant AP to its master. The master adds the data and displays the statistics.
