Aruba Access Point for point to point solution

hi all,

 

i would like to ask here if somebody have same problem and already solving it or already knew how to solve the problem,

 

ok let say i have 2 site of building and i already deploy 2 ap outdoor for point to point solution for connecting this 2 site, and i take configuration from http://ase.arubanetworks.com/ for ap outdoor controller based.

 

and for now , overall the local connection is good, but lets say if site B need internet connection from site A, the connection drop dramatically, and that is requirement, if internet site A drop, site A will take internet from site B, and also otherwise.

 

And i already deploy iap for this point to point solution, but this become worse, for local connection often intermitten (RTO) and slave controller from site B cant take configuration from master controller on site A, and also AD and clearpass only in site A, so user in site B cant connect to SSID because cant connect to clearpass and AD in site A.

 

kindly need your advice or help for "how to" deployment ap outdoor point to point solution,

 

nb : i have 2 access point 277 series and 2 access point 274 series, and i already deploy 277 each site, 274 each site, and combine series but still not working properly

Re: Aruba Access Point for point to point solution

Re: Aruba Access Point for point to point solution

I am trying to understand your problem.
I understand that you have a site to site configuration. In a post above this you mention that site A provides internet to site B, but that site B might provide internet to site a? I have not seen that type of redundancy.
I was hoping that someone would post that they know about that...

Re: Aruba Access Point for point to point solution

thanks for response. yes sir, site B also must provide internet to site A if internet in site B down.

 

last week i try to change the configuration from mesh ap controller base to instant mesh AP, with less client (maybe 10 client) i can download from local server on different site up to 26MB/s , but when the client full (400 client +/-) , the mesh ap intermitten.

 

can you give me advice for best practice to config iap 274 to 274 because i have tried all the configuration from http://ase.arubanetworks.com/ and http://arubapedia.arubanetworks.com/ but we cant solving it yet.

 

nb : distance between these 2 site is 110m and no obstacle between them

 

kindly need your advice sir,

 

thank you so much

Re: Aruba Access Point for point to point solution

You have two problems:

 

1.Multi-site redundancy with multiple uplinks to an ISP.

2. A mesh solution that needs to support 400 users.

 

Neither solution will be provided via ase.arubanetworks.com

Problem 1 is a network design issue that probably has to be worked out on the wired side, before it is translated to the wireless side.  Maybe someone who has done what you are trying to do on this forum can provide some guidance.

For problem 2, a mesh network might not be the right solution to backhaul traffic for 400 users, especially if the users are also attaching to the mesh radios as clients.  If you divide the bandwidth between mesh devices by the number of users, you would not get very much bandwidth at all....

Re: Aruba Access Point for point to point solution

so 274 or 277 cant support 400 client ? even with throughput 1,3Gbps at 5Ghz ?

Re: Aruba Access Point for point to point solution

400 users is too many to carry over a single wireless link. even if it's mesh, there is still a packet per second limitation. Any building with 400 users should be wired in, or you would need to look at a licensed solution where you can license wider channels. 

 

The only way WiFi will work with that many users is to use VHT80 channel widths, and have 100% clear spectrum with no interference anywhere. 

 

As for the rest, there is no Aruba solution within WiFi to handle that kind of redundancy solution, you would have to build a seprate routed network over the wifi and let the routers handle the redundancy. Our mesh is L2 only. If you are unsure on how to set that up, you would need to source a local partner who can design it for you.
