Instant AP Mobility Domain WLAN access parameters.

Afternoon,

 

In order for a client to roam within an Instant mobility domain, it is stated that the "WLAN access parameters" must be the same across the layer 3 networks. I understand the configuration of the mobility domain, which seems straightforward, however I would like confirmation of what is meant by identical WLAN access parameters.

 

Does this refer to the SSID and its associated authentication method, meaning that a client can only roam at layer 3 if the same SSID and authentication are configured across the clusters/swarms in the mobility domain?

 

Are there any other configurations that need to be consistant across clusters in the mobility domain?

 

Thanks,

Johnny.

Re: Instant AP Mobility Domain WLAN access parameters.

You are on the right track:

- You need the same SSID

- Authentication type on the SSID

Thank you

Thanks Victor - what about 802.1X over a mobility domain? Is it possible to roam without re-authenticating?

Do you have OKC enabled ?

Re: Instant AP Mobility Domain WLAN access parameters.

For the sake of argument, lets say yes. In that case, would the pairwise key be shared with other L3 networks.

 

Thanks,

Johnny.
