Can the system handle multiple network cameras transmitting back to the same AP?

Can the system handle multiple network cameras transmitting back to the same AP?

Yes, so long as the combined data rate from the cameras does not exceed the radios’ capabilities. A rule of thumb is to imagine only having 60% of the aggregate bandwidth (180 Mbps for a radio with 300 Mbps aggregate bandwidth) available through the AP or divided among the SUs. As long as the cameras operate within the bandwidth budget they can be combined in a point to multipoint configuration. For example, if your system contains 3 cameras on a 300 Mbps radio, each camera must be set to require a maximum of 60 Mbps.
