Controller Based WLANs

What are the four modes of ARM profile assignment?

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

 

The four modes of ARM assignment are these:

 

  • Disable: Disables ARM calibration and reverts APs back to default channel and power settings specified by the AP's radio profile
  • Maintain: APs maintain their current channel and power settings. This setting can be used to maintain AP channel and power levels after ARM has initially selected the best settings.
  • Multi-band: For single-radio dual-band APs, this value computes ARM assignments for both 5 GHZ (802.11a) and 2.4 GHZ (802.11b/g) frequency bands.
  • Single-band: For single-radio dual-band APs, this value enables APs to change transmit power and channels within their same frequency band, and to adapt to changing channel conditions.

The default setting is single-band.


You can use the WebUI or CLI to configure the mode of ARM profile assignment.

 

Using the WebUI

 

1) Navigate to the Configuration > Wireless > AP Configuration window. Select either the AP Group or AP Specific tab.

 

  • If you selected AP Group, click Edit by the AP group for which you want to create a new RF management profile.
  • If you selected AP Specific, click Edit by the AP for which you want to create a new RF management profile.

2) Under the Profiles list, expand the RF Management menu.

 

3) To reference an ARM profile for an 802.11a radio profile, expand the 802.11a radio profile menu.

To reference an ARM profile for an 802.11g radio profile, expand the 802.11g radio profile menu.

 

Using the CLI

 

Use the following command to create or modify an ARM profile:

 

(Aruba)(config)# rf arm-profile <profile>
(Aruba)(config)# rf arm-profile <profile> assignment {disable|maintain|multi-band|single-band}
