2 DEPLOYMENT SCENARIOS
Avaya 3631 Wireless telephones can be deployed in a Meru Networks WLAN system where the
access points are deployed within a subnet or across multiple layer 2 subnets.
When deploying the system, you should determine which types of devices will require access
and the mechanism of authentication/encryption that they support. This will drive the
configuration of the system to support different user groups and security methods.
For a typical deployment, we recommend configuring at least one ESSID for the 3631 wireless
telephones on a voice VLAN.
For PC’s, configure additional ESSIDs. This traffic should be separated onto a secure VLAN.
