SUMMARY

*This solution will “clone” user selected AP-Group, Virtual, SSID and HT-SSID profiles and optimize these profiles based on Aruba suggested best practices. Up to [6] Virtual APs can be modified and a user selected "suffix" will be added to the cloned profiles to maintain the integrity of the original profiles.

*The solution will also create new Radio, ARM and HT-radio profiles based on the AP deployment model selected and utilize a naming convention for the profiles for clarity and reuse in other AP-Groups.

*The text based configuration output provided, contains all of the newly optimized profiles, Virtual, SSID, HT-SSID, Radio, Arm and HT-radio profiles and  will reference the existing source AP-group as well  the newly created AP-group with the user supplied “suffix” ie.AP-group-“suffix”

Aruba recommends utilizing the newly created AP-group-“suffix” and re-provisioning existing APs from the source AP-group into this new AP-group for verification of the optimization.

*After testing the first rollout of a specific "deployment model" as a proof of concept, the reader should consider consolidating "like" VAP and SSID profiles across AP-Groups with these proven profile settings. Failing to do so could/would grow the overall configuration file unnecessarily.

BUILDING MATERIALS LISTING

It is recommended that information specific to your AP deployment model be completed. The chart below is a example of the type of information to collect. This information can then be used to select the appropriate model for your deployment.

ACTIONS

( SOFTWARE VERSION(S) AND FEATURES ENABLED/DISABLED

  1.  [dot11v] The following should be applied "no cm-dot11v"  to the ARM profiles created when utilizing AOS version 6.4.2.5 and earlier.
  2. Removed Regulatory domain DFS channels 144 ,bonded DFS pairs: 40mhz-channel-pair 140-144, 80mhz-channel-group 132-144
  3. Removed Regulatory domain channels 161,165

Note: some configuration parameters are applicable to later versions of AOS. When the configuration is applied you will receive a error due to this condition and can be ignored. 

UPCOMING FEATURES:

Client-Match parameters based on Venue types.
