Microsoft Lync SDN API and bridge mode ssids

  • 1.  Microsoft Lync SDN API and bridge mode ssids

    With Lync SDN API enabled, does this prioritisation of the Lync traffic happen with clients on a bridge-mode ssid, or do I need to use the old 'classify-media' option?

     

    On that note, for bridged ssids, is WMM and classify-media supported?  I don't see those things specifically listed in here

     

    Thanks

    I would think that WMM should work in bridge mode since this is done at the AP/wireless level but Lync prioritization probably not.

    The Lync API will not work in bridge mode as we are not receiving the traffic to do deep packet inspection at the controller.  If bridge mode is a requirement, consider using Instant instead.  That product will do Lync API

    ok, but I thought the point of the Lync API was that it could identify the Lync traffic without having to do the deep packet inspection.

     

    So what I have at the moment is that for the tunneled ssids, it will use the Lync API, but the for the bridged ssids, it will need to use the pre-6.3 version with the deep-packet inspection.  I assume this is possible on the AP level?

     

    As for the Instants, I see nowhere in there to see the Lync listening port like on the controllers.  In any case, this is for an existing Campus deployment that is being redesigned.
