Not that I know of. If you create a dedicated Network policy for each Access Point, then your limit would probably be the maximum number of Access Points your system can handle.

Now, why you would want to do that, I don't know. What do you want to achieve?

The end user want to deploy the branch router inside the kiosk at different locations. And each kiosk has a Internet connection back to the main office.

I wouldnt know why you would want to have a lot of Network Policies in your HiveManager.

If you are looking for a way to manage multiple customers from one HMVA, i suggest you use VHM's to manage them. If you are looking for a way to deploy the same SSID to diffferent locations, but use different client VLAN's, VLAN's based on topoloy or tags are the way to go (check your user profile for this feature).

In other words, Aerohive supports tons of possibilities to reduce the amount of SSID's, Network Policies and User Profiles, which will keep your HiveManager nice and tidy :-)
