DTIM best practices

Hi all,

 

Do anyone have some best practices guidlines for me regarding DTIM interval?

Best setting for VoWLAN: 1 beacon?

Best setting for High Speed Data: 3 beacons?

 

Many thanks in advance!

 

Kind regards,

Leave it at 1, unless the manufacturer of the device specifies that you change it.

Re: DTIM best practices

Apple, for instance, recommends a DTIM period of 3. Ben Miller goes into great detail about it here:

Also a great post on Aruba Blogs about DTIM/TIM in general:
