roaming rto

 How many RTOs while pinging a host on wireless network are acceptable while roaming from one AP to other ....considering voice/video....I am getting 3-4 RTOs is it good/bad ? How to improve ?

Re: roaming rto

You could:


- Update client drivers

- ensure you have the proper WLAN density (VOIP handsets have their requirements stated)

- Ensure the access points are at the correct power (VOIP handsets have their requirements stated)

- Use an Aruba controller/access point which will optimize the WLAN for VOIP


Pings are usually sent at "best effort" rates, so where a device will drop a ping there are applications like web and email that would retransmit and recover from loss of connectivity effectively.
