Slow сlient roaming when HREAP used (local swithing)

We have standart  wireless deployment with 24 APs (1240G model) and wireless controller 4402-25 placed on same site.

Most of clients (WMS RF terminals ) works with one  WLAN (WPA2-PSK)  and  constantly roam over warehouse , and that works great.

But for better survivability(when controller dies) we are trying to configure HREAP on our APs with local swicthed local auth WLAN. And that also work , but client roaming occur much more slowly and RDP connection to WMS APP server sometimes stuck for 2-5 sec.

Disabling "local switching" checkbox  for WLAN make  roaming almost momental.

Is that normal behavior ? And slow roaming are price for controllerless  HREAP design ? And for fast roaming and  survivability we must use N+1 wlc?

I'll be

appreciate for any opinions

and comments!

Valeriy,

I would advise that you configure HREAP group for your access points. HREAP group is found under the Wireless Tab.

Re: Slow сlient roaming when HREAP used (local swithing)

Local switching should be okay since the AP will be doing the encryp/decrypt when using PSK. How does the traffic flow? Does everything come back to where the wlc sits or not? What I would try to determine is if it's a certain application having issues, a certain device or just overall all devices roam slow.

Thanks,
