Why two provisions to configure Transmit EIRP: under 802.11a/b profile and also ARM profile?

Under the RF Management Profile against each individual radio, there are two options to define theTransmit EIRP. 

  1.  Under the specific radio profile (802.11a radio /802.11b), there’s an option to define the ‘Transmit EIRP’
  2.  Under the ARM profile against that specific radio, there’s an option to define the Tx Power range: Max Tx EIRP and Min Tx EIRP.  

Why are there two options to configure the Tx EIRP?

 

Won’t configuring the range against ARM profile alone be doing the needful?

Please share if it has some significance.

 

802.11a radio                                                                      default

                Adaptive Radio Management (ARM)                  default-a

                High-throughput Radio                                        default-a

                AM Scanning                                                       default

               

802.11g radio                                                                      default

                Adaptive Radio Management (ARM)                  default-g

                High-throughput Radio                                       default-g

                AM Scanning                                                      default

The radio profile settings like power and channel are only used when ARM is set to disable.  When ARM is enabled, the ARM min tx and max tx power are used for radio power.
