802.11a support fast secure roaming

Hi

I want to know if the 802.11a support ckip + cmic. I read somewhere that it only supports 802.11b/g.

Is there a way to enable fast secure roaming on the aironet AP's using the 802.11a radio?

Thanks,

Re: 802.11a support fast secure roaming

Hi John,

We don't use 802.11a in our environment so this is not "first hand", but everything I have read indicates that 802.11a supports Fast Secure Roaming. Have a look;

FAST SECURE ROAMING

Fast secure roaming is supported by Cisco and Cisco Compatible client devices in conjunction with Cisco Aironet access points. With fast secure roaming, authenticated client devices can roam securely from one access point to another, within or across subnets, without any perceptible delay during reassociation. Fast secure roaming supports latency-sensitive applications such as wireless voice over IP (VoIP), enterprise resource planning (ERP), or Citrix-based solutions.
