Wireless Coexistence with extream

Can we co exist the Aruba wireless with Extream networks wifi. We need to co-exist with Altitude 4600 series acces points from Extream Networks. Already extream networks wifi is existing and we will be giving them the seperate wifi for their guest access. 

 

Can this be possible , what are the guide lines?

Re: Wireless Coexistence with extream

Aruba wireless should be able to coexist but you need to make sure your design takes in consideration the following:

- Not use the same SSIDs names on both systems

- Make sure the APs are not too close to each other (50 feet or more) , if this is not possible you may need to adjust the power levels 

- That either systems are not using rogue containment 

- That either systems are using non-overlapping 802.11g channels 

- Depending on how dense your AP deployement is you may need to consider just using 20 Mhz channels instead of 40 Mhz for 802.11an

Re: Wireless Coexistence with extream

other point,  you will not have a centralised Reporting and managment Tools (you will manage every WLAN separtely)

don't forget to register your seconde network as a ligitime network in you aruba controller.
