RF Optimization Profile

Hello

 

What is the recommended settnigs for the RF Optimization profile. Reading about it: the station handoff assist allows the controller to force a client off an AP when the RSSI drops below a defined minimum. By default is disable.

 

Would enabling this help my users to find APs where they will have better RSSI. If a client connect to a AP with a RSSI of -80 and i set the threshold at 75, then the AP will send a death message to the client forcing the client to associate possible to a better AP with RSSI better than 75. Am I correct? If so, this feature will be helpful for builidng that i have high density deployments.

 

Thank you

NIls.

Re: RF Optimization Profile

What version of AOS are you using ?

 

If you have AOS 6.3 you can take advantage of ClientMatch that will help with this

Thank you

If you're on AOS 6.3, it is probably best to use Client Match instead to take care of this stuff.

SHA, should be used in combination with Local Probe threshold as well.

SHA Allows the controller to force a client off an AP when the RSSI drops below a defined minimum threshold. (as per AOS user guide)

Re: RF Optimization Profile

Client-match will over-ride this feature of hand-off assist/load-balancing the clients to better AP. I wouldnt recommend this to enable if you have already enabled client-match feature.

 

Thank you.
