I am expanding my business to over 20,000 sqr/ft and two floor. I currently use a Cisco Aironet 1130 to provide wireless VOIP for my Avaya 3645 phones. I would like to add two addition routers for better coverage and have the phone and future wireless motorola devices roam without loosing connections.
I installed a second 1130 on a different floor with the same SSID and security setup. WPA-TKIP and the devices can associate with the nearest AP.
here is the set-up:
ap1 - channel 1, WPA-TKIP, SSID:AP_IPH
ap2 - channel 8 WPA-TKIP, SSID:AP_IPH
4 wireless phones, 2 wireless computers....so not much traffic. The computers are not currently running and will be added on a seperate VLAN when added.
My question is when I roam with a wireless phone, I get static and the phone does not "hop" to the next AP until I'm right by the next AP. Is there a way I can control when the devices "hop's" to a next AP based on the highest signal strength of the AP, thus hoping to the next AP earlier.
I followed the documentation on setting up QOS for the Avaya.
I have reviewed these documents, however it does not appear I have all the hardware required.
