Wireless Roaming

Hi,

I have the following setup:

Several autonomous Cisco APs, PEAP authentification with radius-based VLAN assignement and WPA2-AES encryption. Is it possible to provide fast roaming between my APs so that the whole process of re-authentification with radius server does not occur?

Is CCKM supported in my case (with dynamic vlan assignement)?

Re: Wireless Roaming

Hi,

When using security in IOS APs you need WDS to achieve Fast roaming.

Basically, there is a master AP (WDS AP) that controls RRM and the authentications. All other APs are infra-structure APs and report to the WDS.

This makes it possible to centralize the associated users so that when a user roams, it does not need to re-authenticate and the roaming is fast.

Please find more information here:
