The Single Point Setup is used to control the wireless service across multiple devices. It is used to create a cluster of wireless devices. Once the cluster is created, then other wireless access points can join the cluster. After the cluster is completed, all the devices share their information such as VAP settings, QoS and radio parameters to reduce interference and maximize the bandwidth of the network. Only one single point setup can be created for each radio interface in the device.

This article shows how to configure single point setup on the WAP121 and WAP321 access points.

• A cluster can be created only among the same model of WAP devices. WAP121 and WAP321 cannot form a cluster with each other.
• The WAP devices must be in the same network with different subnets and it should use the same type of IP addressing. IPv6 and IPv4 configured devices cannot form a cluster.
• WAP121 • WAP321
