To obtain the best possible experience when using Cisco Jabber over
Wi-Fi, we recommend that:
Wi-Fi networks should be designed to minimize occurrences of
layer 3 roams when IP addresses change, resulting in long latency or
roam times, dropped calls, or dropped voice packets.
All access points have the same Service Set Identifier (SSID).
Roaming can be slow if the SSIDs do not match.
Access points should broadcast their SSID (otherwise Cisco
Jabber may disconnect from the Wi-Fi network when roaming to the next access
point and interrupt calls).
