    Hello everyone,

    Trusting in the wide experience of the participants of the forum I want to raise my problem and help to obtain a solution to obtain a solution.

    I count with a WLC (MODEL: Aruba7210), Version which administrative 31 AP 314 with external Athens, these APs are located in the same area of ​​which it is a winery, this winery has all its environment of galvanized metal, floor, ceiling, beams and columns, in fact the floor is mesh type which makes a signal pass one floor another without problem, the amount of APs is by the subject of corridors and boxes that at the moment they are full the signal tends a decrease naturally.

    The problem I have is that the operators use a PDA Honeywell CN51 with OS Android, and these PDAs are showing too many disconnections and I have latencies of up to 500ms in a ping.

    I would like to know what good practices I can begin to do to mitigate this issue, bearing in mind that it is a totally hostile environment for an RF signal.

    I am grateful for my experience to improve the experience of my operators with the WIFI and their PDAs.


    Thank you
