Allowing other Wireless Networks?

We are in an unusual position where we have taken over the lease of a new campus building but have a condition to let the departing tennants remain in part of the building and use our main auditorium once a month for their council meeting.

They have their own wireless set up which they would like to use, Id prefer this to be via a Layer 2 connection from their network and they just string up some AP's for their meeting.


The other option would be to run their SSID's over our network. This would involve us supporting their network which is far from ideal.


If we go via the Layer 2 route and allow them to add their AP's to the auditorium, how do i stop the Aruba's from performing a Denial of service on them and classifying them as a rougue network.?


Ideally Id like them to run their Wi-Fi with minimal impact to ours for the period of this monthly meeting (4hrs). Then we can just turn PoE off and the AP's just stay there until needed at the next meeting where we can turn them on again.

Re: Allowing other Wireless Networks?

By default the Aruba controller would mark them as rogue, but it will not do any protection. You can also go into the dashboard and mark the APs as known interfering. Either way, you should not have a problem.
