Hi , we have been deploying many Balance 20s in many client locations this last 4 months , and have now started into the AP deployment to the WLan Controller of these Balance 20’s ,
we have come across a problem in that the Balance 20’s don’t have any way to create multiple AP profiles , which is forcing us to be restrictive to just one Channel for all the AP’s ,
this is starting to cause some problems in some of our deployments in having other AP’s not under our control to saturate our area under the same channel , the bigger balance’s like 380 - 580
we can have multiple AP profiles and not run into this problem at all .
I know it was suggested by Peplink support to use the original incontrol software , or not use the WLAN controller at all and manage the AP’s individually , both suggestions in my opinion seem to be
not a long term solution i would like to stay with. simplified management and control are the key points we are after and everything is being setup with Incontrol2.
i do see in the balance comparison that Multiple AP profiles is for the larger balances of course . is it possible to maybe allow more then one profile on the Balance 20 ? or an purchasable unlock code
to enable additional profiles ? many clients of ours just don’t need the bigger balances and would rather invest in the wireless network with a solid running balance 20. If i had the ability for a second profile i would
be fine in any location currently having a problem with the single profile Balance 20 restriction.
many thanks for your consideration.
