For those running Cisco I am wondering how many of you have the RLDP feature enabled on your controllers, and if you support real-time voice applications like Vocera - have you noticed any affect to their performance, and connectivity? I am looking at enabling the feature with alerting only -no auto-containment just yet- in order to gain a bit more detailed info regarding the rogues in our environment. From the Cisco document here: http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/support/docs/wireless/4400-series-wireless-... ...It says "During the RLDP process, the AP is unable to serve clients. This will negatively impact performance and connectivity for local mode APs." Interested to know your experience if any with this.

I would rather use Rogue Detector APs. We have RLDP enabled here, we are working toward incorporating Rogue Detector APs instead. RLDP only works on open SSIDs and impacts valid client performance. Rogue Detectors can sense secured networks for wired rogues. We do not currently use any real-time voice applications. Thanks

I agree. But for a short term solution to bridge the gap until we install the dedicated AP's - I think toggling RLDP on/off for Local mode AP's at scheduled intervals after hours might be a decent option. ________________________________________ From: The EDUCAUSE Wireless Issues Constituent Group Listserv [WIRELESS-LAN@LISTSERV.EDUCAUSE.EDU] on behalf of McClintic, Thomas [Thomas.McClintic@UTH.TMC.EDU] Sent: Wednesday, March 05, 2014 4:09 PM To: WIRELESS-LAN@LISTSERV.EDUCAUSE.EDU Subject: Re: [WIRELESS-LAN] RLDP Feature?

We don't use RLDP, mostly b/c "open" Rogues are extremely rare (in our environment). With default settings these days being PSK on SOHO devices, a wide-open Rogue is not common.

To ALL: I wanted to ask a couple questions about what people are doing to improve performance for their wireless systems. Specifically in disabling speeds and turning on aggressive load balancing and client band select. I have access to some survey software and thought why not do it through a survey. So I compiled a basic survey (12 questions) about wireless systems. I added questions about how many cables you pull and what do you do with rogues, two popular topics. I hope people do not find this annoying, the survey is anonymous and of course voluntary. The results to the survey may be useful to many of us so I will publish them back to the list after a week. The more people who take the survey, the more useful the results will be. If people find this sort of thing useful, I can create more surveys and publish the results. http://vovici.com/wsb.dll/s/8727g55c36 PS. This is my first attempt at doing surveys and using this software so I apologize in advance for any mistakes I have made. ********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group discussion list can be found at http://www.educause.edu/groups/.

I stopped using RLDP 5 years ago. It caused problems with client traffic and many false rogue messages. I use rogue detectors.

The open SSIDs that RLDP will look for will be during the day when personal devices are out and about. If you are looking for something someone hooked up, that would work if they leave it on overnight. Try turning it on for a night and see what it finds, sounds like a good idea to me. I see it firing off more in the daytime though. To be honest, it's a nuisance. It causes inconsistency in your network. It is best to use the rule of separating client supporting devices and monitoring devices.
