Power Level Configurations on the Wireless Access Points?

Good Afternoon,

 

I have been searching for this answer:

 

Can the power levels of the Access Points be configured?

 

And how do I go about doing it?

 

I know that if I have  POE switch in place, that would be the place to provision the power.  But can the Access Points themselves be provised?

What kind of access points are these?  Do you have a controller?

AP power settings can sort of be configured on the controller. You have the option to choose the "minimum" power settings for APs, however ARM will make adjustments based on what it feels is the best power setting and channel's to minimize interference and overlap. If you decide to change the minimum power setting, ARM will not power an AP down below what you set. However, it can change the power to anything in between the minimum and maximum. I believe you can change those settings in the AP system profile, but I'm not 100% without being in front of a controller.

 

Thanks.
