Hello to anyone who may know! I have 2 questions on WLAN technology either with reference to Cisco or other vendors.
The Cisco documentation essentially states ‘In a multi-story building WLAN with different subnets per floor, a client attempting to roam to a different AP on the same floor might acquire an AP from an adjacent floor, which is not a desired behavior. Switching APs in a multi-subnet environment changes the roaming activity from a seamless Layer 2 roam to a Layer 3 roam, which in turn might disrupt sessions and require user intervention.’
My question on the above is: In practical application, how is the scenario best managed?
Is there a rule of thumb for provisioning WLAN APs per number of estimated data only users and HOW and WHY would this change for other devices such as VOIP or wireless video devices?
Thank you for any insights or refences you can share!
