Ashu, does the CSR suggested in this document need to be lowered?  It's currently 15 for 11ac APs, but as I understand it, setting the value this high is no longer suggested?

Actually I would love to download this in PDF without the need to signup for slideshare. Any way to do that?

Thanks, Jay (thecompnerd)! Always a pleasure to work with you. You are one of our few customers who went All wireless office with Micorosoft Lync. We learnt a lot from your environment. Anytime, please give me a shout if you need any help with anything.

Thanks Julia.


I thought I was waiting on approval to get the document in PDF format, but it appears as though my spam filter was just blocking the email with the link to download the VRD.  I have the PDF now so I'm happy!


I had the privilege of working with Ashu in the past on a Lync deployment and he provided us the tweaks found in this VRD before it existed.  It's great to finally see this information in a VRD with a lot of explanation for all customers to benefit from.  Great work, guys!

The solution would be to place it right on the website along with all the other Aruba VRDs. :-)

Hi there--so glad this doc is helpful to you!  We love getting feedback from our customers.


We are working on a solution that would allow you to directly download these docs as PDFs--in the meantime we hope there is not much of a delay for you to access the information as a PDF.


Thank you again,

This is great!


My only gripe is having to request access to download the document in PDF format.  Why can't I just download it?
