Aruba Access Points min and max value of RSSI

    Hello!

    Since the range of RSSI values is wireless device vendor specific, I was wondering what is the range for Aruba access points? (min and max value)

    An Atheros-based device (Atheros Wi-Fi chipset) measures RSSI based on values between 0 (no signal) and 60 (maximum signal). However other chipsets might use different values such as 0 to 100 or even 0 to 255. Cisco, for example, uses a 0-100 scale. But what is the range for Aruba access points?

    This article can help understand what exactly I'm referring to (unfortunately it doesn't say the min and max value for Aruba APs): Airheads Community

    This week we're going to discuss a topic of great interest for any radio-based infrastructure, namely RSSI or Received Signal Strength Indication. RSSI is a much used and abused term in the 802.11 world and yet it holds the keys to the kingdom if used properly.

    In general, when Aruba reports signal strength, it is actually SNR (in dB), and the typical range would indeed be 0 to 60 or so.
