Limit of 16 subnets per network

We need to create a subnet for each of our 250 sites due to using DHCP options that are unique to each site.

After I have created 16 subnets I can't create more in the same Network. I get the error "You cannot create more than 16 subnetworks."

This means I have to create a separate Network policy for every 16 subnets.

This seems like a too smal limit?

But since the BR200 is annouced end of sale we probably won't buy the remaining 210 routers anyway.

How have you partitioned the subnetwork in your network policy? It sounds like you don't have it partitioned for the number of branches you have.

We only have a few small sites that we need to be connected via VPN, so we have the subnetwork partitioned for 256 branches with 253 clients/branch. When looking at the partitioning, I see that if you were to partition for 16 branches you would get 4093 clients/branch. I would check the partitioning of the subnetwork to see if that is your issue.

Also, the end of life/support is 5 years from now, so you would still get a good amount of use from them.
