Legacy Open Mesh: How Many User Devices Can My Access Point Handle?

Question

How many user devices can my access point handle?

Environment

  • Open Mesh Access Points

Answer

Real-world capacity can vary widely from advertised specs from a lab. While we've successfully tested more than 100 simultaneous connections in a lab, we recommend a real-world capacity of less.

  • The OM2P can handle between 20-30 clients at maximum capacity.
  • The OM2P-HS and OM5P-AC unit can handle slightly more at 30-40 clients.
  • The MR1750 can handle even more at 35-70 clients.

If users are doing less bandwidth-intensive applications, the access points can handle more clients, but we recommend going no more than 50 in most cases on the OM series, and no more than 100 on the MR series.
