  • 1.  School Campus with 5 AIO sites

    Posted 30 days ago
    We have successfully deployed AIO to our school campus.  Each building's WIFI is a different VLAN (site).  We have five of them.  During passing periods when the students go to their next class, their seems to be some areas where the AP in that room hangs for about 5-10 min.  Looking at the Client list, there are high numbers even when there is no one left in the room.  It takes a several minutes for the Client list to "drop" those that are left.  I am guessing this is because clients going from one site to another are not "handed off" like they would be within one site, and the AP is still trying to communicate with them as they move away.  Is there a way (setting) to force the AP to drop clients with "poor" signals or something like that to help alleviate the congestion in these areas during passing periods?  I've already adjusted the radio strength to the lowest setting.

    Hey Jim,

    In this particular case, we will need to understand a bit more about the deployment of the user. Can you answer a few questions for us?

    How many access points per site?

    Does he see the issue inside the same site or from one site to another?

    One other thing that we need to understand does the client stick to the same AP or whether they leave and take too much time to age out. We are thinking that 2.7 (client match) could help in this kind of situation as this will probably help the client to roam from one AP to another and there's also a load balancing done between the AP. In this case, it could be a deployment issue and the AP could probably be added to make sure that there are enough resources to meet the demand.
