Proposed standard for how a WLAN should perform channel selection, roaming, and transmit power control (TPC) in order to optimize network performance. In a network conforming to 802.11k, if the access point (AP) having the strongest signal is loaded to capacity, a wireless device is connected to one of the underutilized APs. Even though the signal may be weaker, the overall throughput is greater because more efficient use is made of the network resources.
