Need the clients to roam between APs more quickly

Hi all,

In warehouse or manufacturing environments where there are a loarge number of clients and a large number of APs (350s in our case), the 350 seems to wait until the quality of its association is really lousy before it tries to roam to another AP. With latency sensitive applications like telnet or 5250, this causes problems with session lockups and excessive battery use on the client because of too many retries.

How can we get these clients to roam more quickly when their sesion _begins_ to degrade?

The old Aironet/Telxon 2.4GHz networks were able to set ELH and other thresholds to cause more proactive roaming.

We have tried limiting cell size by power levels and/or restricting data rates, but it doesn't seem to improve.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

Brent
