Building-building with WGB350 and encryption?

This customer is keen to build a MAN with 802.11 bridges, and run AVVID IP voice as well as data over the links.

My questions are 1) Can the Aironet 350 bridges encrypt the link and re-key at regular intervals, and do you do this with WEP as it looks to me like LEAP is a client/AP encryption and clearly IP phones can't do this.

2)Can you prioritise RTP and Skinny over a point to point link with the Aironet products?

3) For a point to point link is it simpler and more effective to do a VPN overlay on the wireless link, rather than implement WEP?

Thanks for the input



Re: Building-building with WGB350 and encryption?

For question one, WEP encryption is established at association and cannot re-key mid stream (you’ll lose the association). For question two, the Aironet’s will prioritize traffic if the QoS bits are set (by a Cisco router or switch ahead of them but not without them. For question three, you may have to use IPsec over the wireless link for tighter security in your case.
