handover during VOIP sessions...

Hi,

We are using Aruba 650 controller along with AP -93 and AP 105 and will be using devices for VOIP appllications. 

 

Will my existing setup suffice the requirement of VOIP with seamless handover in between the APs to ensure that there is no call drop. Please help with relevant documents. thanks in advance.

Most VoIP environments are run in the 5ghz band, and the Ap93 can only run a single band at a time. This could limit your success considerably. Your VoIP application also needs to support wmm or 802.11e also in order to be able to prioritize VoIP over other traffic. Without those two things your VoIP traffic quality could be very poor. Handing over or roaming is something that can normally can be dealt with by setting the power correctly on your access points and spacing them correctly.

Re: handover during VOIP sessions...

A client should automatically roam to another access point when the power and signal quality of the previous access point is bad enough for the client to roam.  It is not something you need to enable on the access point.

 

ClientMatch does not help roaming; the client roams before ClientMatch is used on the client.  ClientMatch later will load-balance or move sticky clients.
