Broadcast flood from IAPs to

Anyone have an idea why we would be seeing a flood of broadcast traffic coming from the IAPs and destined for which is the US Naval Oceans Systems Center in Columbus, OH?


My customer did a packet capture from an IAP cluster in one of their campus dorms which was flooding their core switch. When I analyze the traffic and filter on aruba_iap and I see 56% of the packet capture traffic as broadcasts coming from the IAPs and destined for the IP.
