Hello, we will be running an event at a hotel and supplying wifi coverage to the outside. We will be running this connected to our own router and ZD. To complicate matters there will be a separate network, also Ruckus inside the hotel with the same SSID. Our coverage will overlap as we will have some directional APs inside the hotel shooting out the windows. I'd like to know if we will have any potential issues with this setup at all, or will the two managed networks play nice with each other?
Same SSID on two different controllers: Bad idea. 1: They will try to manage the airtime and will register 'rougue' AP's broadcasting the same SSID.
2: You will have different DHCP servers on each net, and what about registration? WPA or Captive? If some sort of portal is in place, you will have guests registering on two different portals, and That is gonna be a strange user experience!
Make an event SSID, or make sure the DHCP/portal is at least the same.
