Adds a member VLAN to a WLAN‘s VLAN pool. Use this option to define the VLANs available to this WLAN. Additionally, define the number of wireless clients supported by each VLAN.


Configuration of a VLAN pool overrides the 'vlan' configuration.

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Access Points — AP505i, AP510i/e, AP560i/h
  • Service Platforms — NX5500, NX7500, NX9500, NX9600, VX9000

vlan-pool-member Adds a member VLAN to a WLAN's VLAN pool

Since users belonging to separate VLANs can share the same WLAN, it is not necessary to create a new WLAN for every VLAN in the network.

<WORD> Define the VLANs available to this WLAN. It is either a single index, or a list of VLAN IDs (for example, 1,3,7), or a range (for example, 1-10)
limit <0-8192> Optional. Is ignored if the number of clients are limited and well within the limits of the DHCP pool on the VLAN
  • <0-8192> – Specifies the number of users allowed
