There is a recently formed netplus-eduroam-admins listserv created by the eduroam-US organization to discuss technical problems like this, and it recently has been having a very similar conversation about required RADIUS attributes, etc. (See https://lists.internet2.edu/sympa/info/netplus-eduroam-admins ) It does seem to me that there aren't a ton of specifics about what exactly are the required attributes for eduroam-US proxying to work correctly.

Aruba’s AirGroup is not vaporware, but is currently only available as a special technology release. The feature is scheduled to be released in a GA release later this year.

 

Aruba forked their code so they could develop this feature without impacting their main GA releases. They then merge the tested changes back into the GA release. Aruba followed a similar process when they developed their current Remote AP technology.

Has anyone tried to use a powerline ethernet product as a backhaul to an outdoor wireless access point?  The thought crossed my mind today that that might be a possibility.  The remote AP can be powered by a light pole and electrical service to that light comes from a breaker inside one of our buildings.  If the uplink came from the same place the power does, that would make the installation a lot simpler I think.  Now that I've had the idea, I wonder...is this a good idea or a bad idea?

We implemented one of these VEOS units in a classroom last fall.  It's pretty neat, but I found the emphasis on wireless to be misleading.  The unit itself does not have wireless; it connects to your network via wired ethernet.  I think the point is that wireless laptops can visit the VEOS unit via http and download the client, and then a student or guest can then share their screen over the projector.  As long as wireless clients can get to the IP address given to the VEOS, then there is no configuration on the network.  I hope that this helps.

Thanks,

We have an open case with Aruba on a power issue with the 5Ghz PA when the AP is in Hybrid mode for Spectrum Monitoring.  This causes (iin our case) the POE switch to reset the port as it sees the AP asking for more current than negotiated. This action resets the AP and all clients are lost which interpreted to our Helpdesk as intermittent connectivity.  Since disabling the Spectrum Monitoring, we have not experienced any further disruptions.  We have several controllers running 6.1.3.7 and several running on 6.2.1.0.

Another problem has surfaced for us recently with MAC OSx, in that 10.8.3/.4 may have keychain issues once more with 802.1x authentication.  Has anyone else run into this.  Of all the complaints, the version has always been 10.8.3 or higher ( it may have been prevelent on earlier versions as well).  Testing has shown that removing the entry in the Keychain resolves the problem for short time, but that is only...

We are currently installing some Aruba APs on our campus which has been fully covered by a Cisco wireless network.   Both systems are controller based installations, Cisco 5508 Aruba 7210, and both authenticate users against our Cisco ACS server.   Both wireless systems are broadcasting the same SSSIDs to provide a common experience for the users.  We have run into a situation where all devices connect to both networks without user intervention, except for Apple devices, which request the users accept the certificate from our ACS server.  We have run tests using the same device and user ID on both network, but each time the apple device connects to the Aruba network the user is prompted to accept the certificate.  We are trying to install the second system without having the users notice any changes.   Has anyone had a similar experience they are willing to share.

We are considering a forklift replacement of our Meru wireless infrastructure since a significant portion of it is approaching end-of-support life (all the controllers and over 2/3s of the APs) and we’ve had our share of problems with Meru. I was wondering if any of you who have recently re-bid your wireless have a set of requirements or an RFP you would be willing to share – either publicly to the list or privately to me directly – so I’m not starting from scratch.

 

FWIW, we currently have six MC3000 controllers and 424 APs providing ubiquitous indoor coverage (admittedly with some weak spots). Bradford Network Sentry provides the NAC (wired and wireless). I do not intend to have a full site survey done as part of the bid, but will increase density in some known problem locations. I also lean toward continuing with the controller-based/thin-AP...

I am looking for ideas to reduce the number of ssid's we advertise on our campus, faculty/staff, student, mobile, eduroam and guest. I know some folks have gone to just eduroam, if you have, what security do you have on the vlan, do users vpn back to the campus network, etc. We are looking at some form of Identity Service to push users into particular vlans, and that isn't working that great at this time. So what are you doing or going to be doing to resolve this type of issue.

Any and all comments, suggestions are welcome

Bruce,

 

Are the clients matching different policies on the ACS server depending on what wireless system they are connected to? If so each policy may be using a different certificate and freaking out the Apple clients when they cross systems.

Hi.  Are you using RRM to manage the radios?  If so what is the reported power output RRM is setting?  If you manually set power to max do you get a performance increase?  We have both 3602i and 3602e series with dipoles you mention with no issues.  We are running 7.2 code currently but plan to goto 7.5 later this summer.

Hello all.  We are seriously considering replacing our Aruba infrastructure in favor of a distributed model.  We are having controller issues this academic year and the appeal of a controller-less model is strong. 

It feels like I am coming full circle to where I was six years ago.  Though I know its not exactly the same, I went back to the thin vs thick debates in the archives.  A few things stood out to me as considerations:  One concern was vendor longevity.  Another was whether or not the thick AP model would be able to keep up with the controller based architecture.  An advantage of the controller based architecture that stood out to me was central processing, specifically regarding key exchange.

Are these points still valid concerns?  If your administration asked you to consider a distributed architecture, what other (vendor-neutral) concerns would you have...

After inquiring about joining eduroam (US), I was a little more than shocked to discover that this is now a paid service offered by Internet2. As we are not I2 members, the yearly costs would be about $1500/year for our institution. I am wondering what other people think about this, especially non-I2 members. Is this service worth that much per year? I am also concerned that these costs will slow or halt adoption of eduroam at smaller non-I2 schools, thereby limiting the benefits of the service.

Hi all, Does anyone have any experience with faculty/staff using "cellular hotspot" products like Verizon's Jetpak MiFi on campus? Specifically I'm wondering if anyone has dealt with policy concerns, security risks, or RFI as a result of using these products. The model we have been asked about (rhymes with WiFi) provides 802.11a/b/g/n and allows up to 10 users. I'm curious about any impact on our existing wireless deployment and policies should these devices become more abundant. Any thoughts or advice is appreciated.

This is our first real "production" year on having wireless coverage in our residence halls. We had VERY limited availability before, typically some commons areas, but we finally obtained funding to go all-out. There have been some early complaints of weak spots or coverage holes. In investigating these, we are discovering a number of user devices are generating interference, particularly on 2.4G... wireless routers (which we don't support and do quarantine), but even more wireless printers pushing out their ad-hoc "configuration" default SSIDs. Has anyone done a laundry list of "how-to" guides to disable wireless on any of these devices? There are too many of them out there for us to try to address individually, but hopefully an email word-of-warning and explanation, along with a link to how to resolve the issue would be sufficient for most. But we're not sure where to start :) Jeff ********** Participation and subscription information for this EDUCAUSE Constituent Group...

Educause-Denver-2012 was a success. Great topics, amazing Weather, great audience, and even good food!
The following topics were tackled by the Wireless-LAN group within the 50 minutes assigned.

Here is the report from our meeting. Thank you to Jeffrey Ballentine from UPenn for taking notes during the meeting.

•802.11AC Why wait? Why jump?
AC is 5Hz only, the first offering will not support Multi user MIMO (the ability to support multiple devices on different streams) and it might take one more year before Multi User MIMO is supported.
The group was wondering if vendors were already offering AC devices. As usual with Wi-Fi, consumer APs are first available then enterprise grade.
So, no rush on AC as of today. And really Multi user MIMO seems to be the greatest benefit

Good morning. We received many complains about the disconnection of Android 4 (or later) devices. The clients report that the connection continues for 5 to 10 minutes, then they could not connect to the wireless network anymore, and they have to reboot the device to get a new connection. I searched the internet, and found Android 4 has problem with PEAP mschapv2: “the mschapv2 setting is not saved and it always reverts to none”.
