By default, all access points in a network will broadcast all enabled SSIDs simultaneously. While this is desired for most deployments, there may be cases where certain SSIDs should only be broadcast from a single AP or specific group of APs. AP tags in Dashboard are used to partition the wireless network into both physical or security-based segments and for basic management purposes.
This article also provides an example of a scenario where this may be desirable and describes how to specify which APs will broadcast a specific SSID.
Tags have now been selected (see below).
Now, only APs tagged with "West" would broadcast the SSID "ARCH". The above steps should then be repeated for each target SSID to achieve full control of SSID broadcasts.
Multiple tags used to broadcast in multiple areas of a building:
Implement the following tags:
AP Locations and respective tags
Follow the steps in the main body of the article to achieve a similar deployment as in the above example.
