Wireless Best Practice / signal strength

 Hi ,

 

I would like to know what is the wirless best practice while using Aruba like cisco says -67 DBM signal strength is considered as their best practice...so do we have any document which states about Aruba best practice in terms of signal level.

-67 in practice is a good target across the board for all clients.  For more information, pleasesee "Optimizing Aruba WLANs for Roaming Devices" here:  http://www.arubanetworks.com/wp-content/uploads/DG_Roaming.pdf

Bhrt,

 

That document accounts for the fact that you might have voice mixed into your population.   The indoor 802.11n site survey and planning document has good information and principles about the network you are interested in building: http://www.arubanetworks.com/wp-content/uploads/Indoor80211n_2012-05-31.pdf   

 

The -67 number depends on the voice handset manufacturer.  If you are not doing voice, the document above should suffice.

Re: Wireless Best Practice / signal strength

I was in site survey today and i was receiving signal strength on my mobile phone -93 dbm beside aruba 205 ap in instant mode and signal strength -80 dbm when moving away from the ap.
Is it logic?

I would use Aruba utilities in the Android Store here to detemine signal strength.  In your screenshot, it could be the 4g signal strength, not the wifi strength...
