I work for a healthcare organization where nurses use what we refer to as COWS, or carts on wheels. These carts are basically laptops attached to carts that utilize our wireless infrastructure to access patient care applications.
The problem we've been having and working with the application developers on is that, whenever the carts are moved between patient rooms and have to associate with a different AP, the telnet connection that the application uses to establish connectivity is dropped during the short delay in the changeover.
Anyone have any experience with settings that might mitigate this? Far as I know there are no telnet timers that can be adjusted(buffered) to help with this situation, and I'm not certain if anything can be adjusted on the wireless network to help. The "fix" has been to have the user reboot to re-establish the telnet session and then everything's good again.
Any suggestions on things to try?
