What are the maximum number of APs managed by the USG Flex 500 with the current standard license bundle?  Originally was 8.  I believe that was increased to 16 in later firmware as mentioned in the release notes*. If not 16, what is the license number to expand the Managed AP service node limit?**  Thanks

* edit: 5.10  [ENHANCEMENT] Product spec enlarge AP Groups.
Model
             WAS IS
USG FLEX 500
  8    16
USG FLEX 700
  8    32
ATP500
           8    16
ATP700
           8    32
ATP800
           8    32
VPN1000
      16    32

** edit: These are all local APs, not remote.  Looking for the original AP expansion license since remote VPNed traffic not required.

    Hi @dkyeager

    Currently, the USG Flex 500 support 8 managed APs by default, but if you activated the Secure WiFi license service on the USG Flex 500 then the maximum managed APs numbers would enlarge to 72, please refer to this link for further reference, the Secure WiFi has two features that include Secure Tunnel and Managed AP Service.


    You can purchase the Secure WiFi license on the Marketplace in the Individual Licenses option, as below:


    Thanks.

    Thanks, I was aware of this option.  Hoping for a less expensive option such as prior 2 or 8 Access Point expansions just for local use.  Might be more cost effective to buy separate hardware to effectively create separate groups.
