Seamless roaming

Wed Dec 09, 2020 1:57 pm

Hello
Is there a seamless roaming supported by any chance? I don't mean same SSID, this setup causes short interruptions when you roam between 2 AP. True roaming like TPLINK Deco support(802.11r/v/k), where you roam between AP like being in GSM network and no single data interrupt is noticed as long u stay in range of any AP's.

I'm not a wireless expert but from reading the forums i understand that the devices dictate how roaming works in most cases.
I have a 4 floors building with mikrotik wireless ap's, capsman and vlans for office/guests and the last time i tested a whatsup conversation while walking on all floors i didnt noticed any interruption and the conversation was crystal clear.
 
whatever

802.11r/k/v is not seamless either and it's nothing like GSM. Wifi roaming always causes short interruptions, 802.11r/k just help in shortening those.
