Back to the future with this Airheads Online article from 2007.
Most Enterprises installing Wi-Fi networks today do so with the expectation that they will be able to support voice traffic, either immediately or in the future. Our experience at Aruba is that when customers come to add voice to an existing Wi-Fi network, even one that was installed one or two years previously, there is seldom a need to re-engineer the network. (Since voice over Wi-Fi technology is continually advancing, we usually recommend upgrading to the latest software when deploying voice on a previously data-only network).
However, many customers have expressed interest in a brief guide to the state-of-the-art in voice, and particular network design considerations for voice over Wi-Fi networks. This note lists what we have found to be the most significant areas for consideration – clearly we cannot speak in detail for all Wi-Fi vendors, but it includes many generalizations which we believe would apply to most state-of-the-art WLAN infrastructure.
Since voice is an end-to-end application, ensuring the LAN is ready for voice traffic is essential.
At Aruba, we believe that the most dynamic customer experiences happen at the Edge. Our mission is to deliver innovative solutions that harness data at the Edge to drive powerful business outcomes.
