How to disable higher MCS rates in case of 802.11ac?

Aruba Employee

802.11ac has introduced 2 new MCS rates called MCS 8 & 9. By default 11ac APs use upto MCS 9 in all spatial streams.

But it can be configured to ensure that higher MCS rates are not used.

 

MCS 8 and 9 introduces 256 QAM with Convolution coding of 3/4 and 5/6 rates respectively. These rates are supported in all the Spatial streams. AP 225 supports a maximum of 3 spatial streams.

 

Environment : AOS version: 6.3.0.0  AP: AP 225

 

Network : Controller --------- AP 225s )) (( 11ac Clients.

 

The configuration to specify the required MCS rates for specific SSID can be done in "WLAN HT-SSID profile". By default max MCS is 9 for all Spatial streams. This can be reduced in Ht ssid profile as below.

Add or revome necessary MCS rates in the HT-ssid profile and map it to the corresponding ssid profile.

To validate if the configuration has taken effect, check the below command:
