what would you suggest, are the best settings in the "Client Roaming Section" of the WLC Configuration for the following requirements:
VoIP over WLAN deployment, 802.11a, WLC 4402, 25 - 30 access points (mainly 1252, a few 1130), 7925G phones.
In the moment the settings are set to default, that means: Min. Rssi = -85; Hysteresis = 3; Scan Tresh. = -72; Trans. Time = 5
Unfortunately we are not completely satisfied with the roaming behavior of our phones, so there is the question,
if the roaming behavior of the phones can be improved. Sometimes it looks like the phone takes too much time to make a roaming decision.
Solved! Go to Solution.
it seems that we have exactly the same issue.
WLC5508, SW 7.0.98
AP1140 and 1250
Phone 7921 and 7925 and 1.4.1 SW Version
Did you have got any news from Cisco about your TAC case?
Frank, those settings only apply to Intel clients and are not used by 7925Gs. For the phones, I would recommend:
thanks for your answer.
The phones are already running on firmware 1.3.4 SR1.
And meanwhile, I think I know the 7925G Deployment Guide by heart.
But sometimes the phone simply makes the wrong roaming decision.
Unfortunately it's not 1 out of hundred, it's one out of 10 decisions that's wrong.
Maybe it would be a suggestive feature in the future if one can set "default roaming routes" for the phone.
So your wireless network was properly surveyed for and channel/power settings for aps are configured properly? Do you have your WLAN set up for CCKM and WMM? Do you have qos set up for voice?
Our wireless wireless network has been surveyed twice.
The first time to figure out the positions of the Access Points and because there have been changes in amount of APs
and position of some APs, a second time to figure out the ideal power level and channel settings for the changed environment.
The amount of APs and some positions changed, because sometimes there have been two APs in the same office
with an RSSI, let's say 60-65 and the phone was permanently changing the AP, what impacted the quality of the phone call.
The WMM and QOS settings are set for the WLAN, as described in the 7925G Deployment Guide.
CCKM is not set, because we are using WPA2-PSK.
Isn't CCKM of note only, when using 802.1x authentication?
Frank, what version of code are you running on the WLCs/APs? If 22.214.171.124 thru 126.96.36.199,then do please note that the APs are susceptible to:
CSCta29484: Radio stops beaconing for 10-second period (fixed in 188.8.131.52)
CSCte89891 Radio may stop transmitting beacons periodically (affects 184.108.40.206 too)
If the phone doesn't receive beacons for one second, it'll roam to another AP.
220.127.116.11 is not susceptible to those known beaconing problems.
I would recommend opening a TAC case, and being prepared to collect multichannel, NTP-sychronized wireless packet traces, coordinated with phone traces, WLC/AP debugs, and wired packet traces.
have you been able to solve your problems. We have the same issues with 7921 (1.3.4SR1) and 18.104.22.168, but we are not able to solve the problems.
at the moment we are redesigning the problematic spots in our network
and this will hopefully help to resolve our problems.
thanks for the feedback. Actually we are working with the TAC and hopefully we gonna have a solution today or tomorrow.
As soon as I now more I will post it here.
no not at all, we are working with the TAC since 2 weeks and with the business unit (developers) voice and wireless since 2 days, but actually we do not have a solution.
how are you doing with your VoIP design? We also redesigned some spots, but we still have voice gaps and it is annoying.
