    Q: Do third party access points, for example Cisco access points, count against the BSAP limits or concurrent authenticated user limits of the BSC?

     

    A: Third party access points do not count against the BSAP limits however if their management interface is on the BSC's managed network and is authenticated to the BSC into an "access point management" role they will count against the concurrent authenticated user limit. Alternatively the management interface of the third party AP can be placed on a dedicated management vlan so that you could manage it via telnet, ssh, https, etc without having to go through the BSC.
