802.11r support for MSM controllers and AP's?

I am trying to determine whether procurve wireless products support 802.11r for fast roaming between AP's. My installation would require this for voice and video traffic over UDP. I see it support spectralink but the only reference I can find to 802.11r is in this design document http://h20000.www2.hp.com/bc/docs/support/SupportManual/c02566499/c02566499.pdf

I can't find configuration, or a definite answer in any of the manuals for the msm430/msm460/msm466 or the controller manuals such as the msm710 mobility version.

 

Does anyone have know the answer, and if so how to configure it?

 

Thanks,

Bump, the issue is with clients using ipads and iphones with facetime. Every time a client switches AP's their connection is dropped. Apple supports 802.11r in the 4th gen iPad, and since the iPhone 4s. http://images.apple.com/iphone/business/docs/iOS_6_Wifi_Sept12.pdf

 

Are there any other vendors besides Cisco that support 802.11r, 02.11k?

 

Thanks

Hi David

 

MSM doesn't currently support 802.11r as such. But I haven't heard this causing any specific problems with Apple devices.

 

When using iOS 6 devices please ensure they're updated. I believe current iOS version is 6.0.2, and it contains multiple fixes for wireless performance.
