Abstract

"MOT-On-MOT” deployments are those in which Motorola mobile devices and Motorola WLAN infrastructure interoperate. Such deployments present an opportunity to optimize WLAN performance using MOT-On-MOT features that are implemented by both the mobile devices and the infrastructure. These features go above and beyond IEEE and Wi-Fi standards to enhance performance and quality of experience for the user.

Executive Summary

  • “MOT-On-MOT” deployments are those in which Motorola mobile devices and Motorola WLAN infrastructure interoperate.  Such deployments present an opportunity to optimize WLAN performance using MOT-On-MOT features that are implemented by both the mobile devices and the infrastructure.  These features go above and beyond IEEE and Wi-Fi standards to enhance performance and quality of experience for the user.
  • MOT-On-MOT features allow the mobile devices to roam more efficiently, load balance across access points, control RF interference, optimize battery life and deliver superior QoS for voice and video applications.

 

  • Motorola Hyper Fast Secure Roaming (HFSR) allows the mobile device and the access point (AP) to skip lengthy EAP authentication exchange required when the device roams to a different AP. Mobile devices get fast roaming advantage when the security profile is set to WPA/WPA2 personal or enterprise.

 

  • Motorola infrastructure provides multimedia aware load leveling information to the mobile devices. This enables the clients to avoid oversubscribed access points and results in an overall increase in capacity.

 

  • Motorola client power control provides a powerful way of dynamically setting the transmit power for all clients to the same level as the access point or any other value chosen by the administrator. This results in a more reliable wireless network and improved performance. Mobile devices with lower transmit power also conserves energy and results in an increased battery life.

 

  • Motorola SmartScan is a mechanism by which infrastructure provides a list of channels for clients to scan. This enables mobile devices to avoid scanning on ‘empty’ channels resulting in faster connections. Since client radios are able to completely eliminate unnecessary active scans, client battery life is also increased.

 

Introduction

The term “MOT-On-MOT” refers to deployments in which Motorola mobile devices and Motorola WLAN infrastructure interoperate.  Such deployments present an opportunity to optimize WLAN performance using MOT-On-MOT features that are implemented by both the mobile devices and the infrastructure.  These features go above and beyond IEEE and Wi-Fi standards.

Why are MOT-On-MOT Optimizations Required?

In most enterprise deployments, there exists great degree of variability in terms of overall mobility performance, reliable access to the network, quality of experience for voice users and mobile device battery life....
