Optimizing Aruba WLANs for Roaming Devices
This Solution Guide describes best practices for implementing an Aruba 802.11 wireless network that supports thousands of highly mobile devices (HMDs) such as Wi-Fi phones, handheld scanning terminals, voice badges, and computers mounted to vehicles. It describes the design principles particular to keeping devices that are in constant motion connected to the network as well as best practices for configuring Aruba Networks controllers and the mobile devices. The comprehensive guide addresses six areas of network planning to ensure a high quality of service for roaming data and voice sessions: device configuration, airtime optimization, roaming optimization, IP mobility configuration, IP multicast configuration, and interference resistance. A detailed troubleshooting section covers common issues that arise with these types of WLANs.
