IEEE Standards v. CCX

IT Services

Good Afternoon,

We have a mixed environment where we have to support CCX and non-CCX compliant devices.

I am looking to configure 802.11k and other features that are the IEEE standard equivelant of what CCX can offer.

Has anyone ever run these in parralell on the same WLAN or should we consider creating different WLAN's for say our MAC clients and another WLAN for our Windows based (CCX compatible) clients?

I don't think running a single SSID for ccx and non ccx is an issue at all.  Many implementations are done that way, look at guest Internet.  Only when using 802.11r is where you might consider another SSID because clients that do not support 802.11r will not be able to associate.

I'm just thinking that there are soo many features that could be disabled to make it a healthier less error-prone wireless network for hte non-ccx compliant devices.

Thanks for the reply Scott

The big thing is to understand these features. Sometime the best way to have a stable environment is to keep things simple. That means basic settings on the WLC and on the SSID. Maybe these are considered as workarounds, but features can end up causing devices to have issues.

Thanks again Scott
