I've seen that in 7.4 and later Release on the WLC5508 you can configure 802.11r and 11k support using Fast Transaction so that iOS7 won't experience connection loss during Roaming...my question is on the same WLAN can I configure 802.1X and FT-802.1X Authentication so that I'll be able to have on the same SSID non802.11r and 802.11r capable client? Or this setup will create association problem ?
Maybe this can help explain it also:
Legacy clients cannot associate with a WLAN that has 802.11r enabled if the driver of the supplicant that is responsible for parsing the Robust Security Network Information Exchange (RSN IE) is old and not aware of the additional AKM suites in the IE. Due to this limitation, clients cannot send association requests to WLANs. These clients, however, can still associate with non-802.11r WLANs. Clients that are 802.11r capable can associate as 802.11i clients on WLANs that have both 802.11i and 802.11r Authentication Key Management Suites enabled. The workaround is to enable or upgrade the driver of the legacy clients to work with the new 802.11r AKMs, after which the legacy clients can successfully associate with 802.11r enabled WLANs. Another workaround is to have two SSIDs with the same name but with different security settings (FT and non-FT).
