    There are a lot of variables that could be causing this.  To start, have you looked at the Optimizing Aruba WLANs for Roaming Devices VRD?  There are some specific recommendations for Spectralink 8020/8030, not 8440, but the principals may be the same.   Polycom also has a Configuration Guide for Aruba and does cover the 8440.

    Thanks for the update.  Did the guides help?  Was there any particular settings that made a difference that you could share for future reference?

    It seems like when the phone is not in an active call it dont roam as it do when its in a call. And i guess maybe thats a power saving mechanism. We also tried to get the all the channels in subband3 only for faster roaming. So 1 step closer i know working on another issue:) but in separate post. Thanks alot for ur support
