The 8500 will support
Cisco 8500 Series Controllers are introduced with support for local mode, FlexConnect, and mesh modes. The Cisco 8500 Series Controllers support 6000 APs, 64,000 clients, 2000 FlexConnect groups, 6000 AP groups, 100 APs per FlexConnect group, and up to 4095 VLANs. A Cisco 8500 Series Controller can support up to 24,000 rogue APs and 32,000 rogue clients
