ARM Profile Assignment

Hi,

 

AOS 3.4.5.0

 

Our Arm profile currently has the assignment set as single-band. This was set up by Alcatel Support tech,

 

My question is why would they suggest this setting and not use multi-band.

 

Wouldn't you want ARM  to be considering both 5 GHZ and 2.4 GHZ in its calculations?

That is correct.  If you have access points that are dual radio, single band is what you want it to be.

Re: ARM Profile Assignment

You will get four options there and below Aruba gave  description for those:

.

 

  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 APs, this value computes ARM assignments for both 5 GHZ (802.11a) and 2.4 GHZ (802.11b/g) frequency bands.

 

  single-band: For dual-radio APs, this value enables APs to change transmit power and channels within their same frequency band, and to adapt to changing channel conditions. Default: single-band.
