CTS 017: Francois Verges and Roaming

In This Episode

In episode 17 of the Clear To Send I would like to welcome Francois Verges of SemFio Networks.

We talk about an introduction to roaming.

Some of the topics we discuss are what customers need to know about WiFi roaming, how clients decide to roam, and what it means to roam.

Sometimes there are also problems to solve about roaming. What happens when a client doesn’t roam? We talk about some amendments that help with improved roaming.

    Thanks Rowell for another great Episode, you have made my drive to work worth while now 🙂 before i use to feel i am wasting my time when i drive to work or back now i tune in to your pod cast and learn something.
    Would love to hear about why not to use 80 Mhz channels as that has been my constant topic of arguments with other members of my team.
    As I am told since ac has per-frame channel width and bandwidth signaling
    so it takes care of any CCI but i think other wise and would like to hear more clear explanation

    Thanks again for all your hard work and sharing.

    Regards
    Gurpreet

      Hi Gurpreet, thanks for the feedback.

      With 80 MHz channels you still have only 6 channels that you’d reuse. After you have done your wireless survey, find out what other channels are being used to determine if 80 MHz can be used in your environment.

      80 MHz doesn’t take care of CCI. What 802.11ac will do is if it detects energy on any of the channels within an 80 MHz channel it will step down to a 40 MHz or 20 MHz channel.

      There are other reasons for not using 80 MHz channels now but I think I may turn this into a podcast episode.

    Thanks for the reply. Would love it if you make a podcast out of it.
