Which WLAN devices support roaming
Fat APs do not support WLAN roaming. AC+Fit AP networking support WLAN roaming. V200R003 and earlier versions support only intra-AC roaming, while V200R005 and later versions support both intra-AC and inter-AC roaming. Depending on whether a STA roams within the same subnet, WLAN roaming is categorized as Layer 2 roaming (on the same subnet) and Layer 3 roaming (on different subnets). Layer 2 roaming is classified into fast roaming and non-fast roaming according to security policies used by STAs. Only when the security policy is WPA2-802.1x and STAs support fast roaming technology, fast roaming can be achieved.
