Does anyone out there have some suggestions on limiting the multicast on a wifi network? Special commands and or services that you disable before deploying 1000s of ipads and macbook airs?
We are running into a problem where our access points can't cope with the amount of multicast traffic that is going on.
Joey: No, that was a good size broadcast storm. What was it, an F-3?
Bill: Solid F-2.
Milissa: See, now you've lost me again.
Bill: It's the Fujita Scale. It measures a broadcast storm's intensity by how much it eats.
Bill: Destroys your network.
Lawrence: The one we last encountered was a strong F-2, possibly an F-3.
Beltzer: Maybe we'll see some F-4's.
Haynes: That would be sweet!
Bill: 4 is good. 4 will relocate your network closet very efficiently.
Melissa: Is there an F-5? What would that be like?
Preacher: ...The Finger of God.
(or perhaps Root)
OK, that's hilarious...we use some beefy HP switches and those nasty 10/100 USB adapters to send out our initial deployment that included CS5.5, Office 2011, etc. Not ideal, but better than wiping out our wireless subnet...Only ran about 20 machines at a time, though.
