Access point Poor Quality

Hello,

 

Our user  are complaining for poor performance  of APs and sometimes drop out. Then I checked the dashboard and I saw this Poor quality. I don't know what it means.

 

Please help me to investigate and fix this issue.

 

the output below is "show  ap arm state ap-name" for the AP that I found poor quality

 

(THGWLC001) #show  ap arm state ap-name THGWLA003

Re: Access point Poor Quality

That command does not tell the full story.  Can you post a screenshot of the "Performance Summary" on the Dashboard?

Re: Access point Poor Quality

What regulatory domain is this?  It seems that you have channels 5 and 7 enabled, when it should typically only be 1, 6 and 11..

According the performance summary, most of your network does not seem to be bad.  There might be improvements that can be made, however.

Re: Access point Poor Quality

I'm sorry that I don't understand about " regulatory domain " that you mentioned.

I'm newbie for Aruba, please explain me more.

 

Thanks so much

Re: Access point Poor Quality

The regulatory domain is not specific to Aruba.  It exist in all wireless LANs.  The regulatory domain would be the country where the WLAN is deployed.

 

Your controller is using channels 5 and 7 which is causing interference.  It should only be channels 1, 6 and 11.  Please ask  the person who configured the controller so that they make this change.

Re: Access point Poor Quality

The regulatory domain is effectively the country that you are in, there will be a regulatory body in your area that determines what channels you can transmit on. In the US it is the FCC, in europe this is ETSI.
