1 AP, 3 SSID's all on the same channel?

I configured a ZF7372 to have 4 SSIDs.

3 SSID's are on the 2.4GHz radio
1 is on the 5ghz

I noticed that the 3 on the 2.4 are all on the same channel, is that ok? I'm not familiar enough with multi-ssid AP's to know if that is normal or not. Doesn't seem to be a way to section them off.

I have some other AP's but they aren't active yet, I wanted to make sure this is good first. Using a ZD1100 controller.

Yes, your 7372 has both a 2.4G radio and a 5G radio, and will advertise SSIDs on
one 2.4G channel and one 5G channel. If you don't specify your SSID is only for
one band, the AP would advertise it on both 2.4G and 5G radios.

But yes, it is normal to see all of an AP's 2.4G or 5G SSIDs on the same 2.4G or
5G channel.

When 3+ APs are connected to a ZoneDirector, the ZD will instruct your APs to use the best 2.4G and 5G channels.

OK good; with them hooked up I noticed the noise floor is around -105, lot of interference or is that pretty normal?

Can't be much better than that.
