vocera

Hi

Has anyone had success deploying a vocera solution over aironet and WLSM?

I have been asked to look into the best way of securing the wireless for a vocera solution but don't know where to start.

I would imagine that setting up a voice vlan on the access points would be the best method.

Anyone got any example configurations?

Thanks

Re: vocera

I have been using vocera for a couple of years now on 1200 ap's with a WLSM. Set up a separate vlan and tunnel with LEAP/ckip, as it would not work with WPA/TKIP.

For ckip, check only the network eap box. Set dtim to 2 as well for better performance.

Re: vocera

We also are using Vocera, over 350 devices. We're using Cisco 7920 as well over separates VLANs. One note, you said you set the DTIM to 2? Vocera told us to set it to 1.

Re: vocera

What are you using to handle fast roaming? WLC or WLSM?

We are currently in process of deploying wireless for Vocera. If you could share your experience of deploying wireless for Vocera I would appreciate it very much. My email is sungy@ohsu.edu. Thanks

Re: vocera

Thanks for the feedback.

If anyone has example WLSM and AP configs they could post that would be great!

Re: vocera

How did you address the difference in recommended configs between vocera and the 7920? 7920 best practice is to lock out 1,2, and 5.5 Mb - but vocera requires them. thanks.

Re: vocera

Cisco does recommend 11Mbps data rates only, but it will work at 5.5, which we have set as required for Vocera. With a heavily density WLAN deployment, all 802.11b devices will be able to communicate at 11Mbps regardless. We have tested 7920 at this settings and our calls are flawless.

Re: vocera

Has anybody done both vocera and 7920 in a controller-based environment with any luck?
