I have been wondering .. (and that's always a good start) ..
We have a customer with a one-entrance reception area/waiting lounge ..
This means, that both guests and all employees enter through this area, and meets the customers Meraki wireless here first time.
This ALSO means, that a -lot- of transit associations take place.. and sometimes client balancing takes occur. We also see that some anchor issues associated with this client behaviour, when employees scatter throughout the campus after entering the main entrance ..
Is there a way to shorten the roaming / change behaviour for the AP located in the reception area to avoid issues for the staff working there, also of this AP ?
What are Your experiences and pref's with this roaming thing ?
@cmrThose are good suggestions! The split also somewhat sounds good, but the number of clients on the greeting AP will remain the same ?
It does not seem as it will affect the "Anchor" function .. As I read the doc's it means, that everybody will get the greeting AP / reception area as anchor, since that is the first encounter with the Wifi, and when leaving for the other parts of the campus, the anchor will stay ?
There are two radios in each MR (2.4 and 5) and it is the number of clients per radio that matters for local connections. The anchor is only for layer-3 roaming SSIDs, are you using them then, and if so why? They are only needed if the same SSID has different subnets underneath it, i.e. 10.1.1.0/24 at reception and 10.1.2.0/24 somewhere else on site.
