On my quest to understand what AP is and how it works, I came across article that says this:
Most often, there are different BSSIDs on an access point for each WLAN configured on a radio. If you have an access point with 2 radios and 32 WLANs configured on each, you would have 64 BSSIDs plus the base access point BSSID. To accommodate the multiple BSSIDs, each access point is assigned a unique block of 64 MAC addresses. Each radio has 32 MAC addresses and supports up to 32 service set identifiers (SSIDs), with one MAC address assigned to each SSID as a basic service set identification (BSSID). All MAC addresses for an access point are assigned based on the base MAC address of the access point.
I just cannot understand that.I thought each
AP has one
MAC address (BSSID), but above it says "each access point is assigned a unique block of 64
MAC addresses"? And what does
radio mean in the above context?
