should I expect any performance hit from enabling 210x tagged VLANs on ALL 24x ports of a switch (or alternatively setting ALL 24x ports as trunk ports)
background / equipment:
We have a install with 10 x netgear 24-port switches, into which are plugged 200x ruckus 7372 access points running standalone firmware (one ap, hardwired, per apartment, 200 apartments). Switches are: Netgear GS728TPP switches (24-port, 1g poe, specs state max 256 vlans)
Each access point has a unique SSID and password for the unit it is in (ie unit 213’s ap is putting out SSID: u213 with WPA Password: xyzxyz213). This units SSID is set to tagged VLAN 213. There is a core mikrotik which will have all 200 VLANs with a /24 10.x ip and DHCP-server on each vlan.
I could go into more specifics about why we want the system to be set up this way, but I don’t want the thread/question to be too long (too late!, but if interested i’ll post more details in reply)
I really want to focus on my main question; should I expect any issues or performance hits from Setting all 24 ports to all 200 tagged VLANs. (or is it better to set all ports as trunk ports?) Part of this question is hypothetical, as i will most like end up config-ing all ports of each switch for only the 24 vlans (units) it can possibly serve and trunk the uplinks- but id like to know answer to my original question still.
(I could of course properly set each port to its proper "unit number" VLAN, and then set my uplinks as trunks- however there may come scenarios where the Ethernet plugs physically get rearranged at the switch and thus unit-421 could end up being plugged into a swithcport only tagging for vlan 428 and thus not work).
