Supported in the following platforms:

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


vlan [<1-4094>|<VLAN-ALIAS-NAME>]


vlan [<1-4094>|<VLAN-ALIAS-NAME>]
<1-4094> Sets a WLAN‘s VLAN ID. This command starts a new VLAN assignment for a WLAN index. All prior VLAN settings are erased.

Use this command to assign just one VLAN to the WLAN. Utilizing a single VLAN per WLAN is a more typical deployment scenario than using a VLAN pool.

<VLAN-ALIAS-NAME> Assigns a VLAN alias to the WLAN. The VLAN alias should be pre-existing and configured.

A VLAN alias maps a name to a VLAN ID. When applied to ports (for example GE ports) using the trunk mode, a VLAN alias denies or permits traffic, on the port, to and from the VLANs specified in the alias. For more information on aliases, see alias.
