    We will be doing a demo of the Vocera badges. Is there a Vocera guide? Is there anything that can be tricky with the configuration?

    Aruba controller has a ALG for vocera so it should able to detect it from a firewall perspective , make sure that on the SSID you have the lower data rates enabled

     

    There's already a Vocera ACL available on the controllers:

    Make sure you read this document  which has some good tips to allow Voice devices to roaming appropriately on wireless:

    I have found a Design and Implementation Guide on the Aruba sight but it seems a little dated.

    They should point you in the right direction.

     

    Also, in this post: http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Unified-Wired-Wireless-Access/Vocera-ACL/td-p/48080 cjoseph mentions that Aruba's Roaming Devices VRD has a template for Vocera.

     

    I just went through tweaking my Vocera network about a year ago.
