Can I enable spectrum load balancing when band steering is enabled in ArubaOS 6.0?

Question:  Can I enable spectrum load balancing when band steering is enabled in ArubaOS 6.0?

 

Product and Software: This article applies to all Aruba controllers and ArubaOS 6.0.

It is not advisable to enable spectrum load balancing when band steering is enabled.

Band steering follows the 4:1 rule, which says when four clients are in a-radio, it tries to place the fifth client in g-radio. Hence, spectrum load balancing can cause a conflict because (starting in ArubaOS 6.0) it tries to place the users equally on both the radios.

For g-radio, we can enable both features.
