AP Naming Convention

  • 1.  AP Naming Convention

    Posted Mar 17, 2016 11:10 AM

    We are looking to redo our AP naming convention and I was wondering what othe people are doing for AP naming convention


    For example one of our possible naming conventions is


    Site_ID-Floor-Role (AP Regular AP/AM Monitor Mode)/AP Number -last_2_digits_MAC


    For example



    What do other people do?

    Your example is fine. Name has to make sense to you and your team, but here are some example of names I used for my customers:


    F1-AP1  F1 being floor one






    I'm sure the folks here can also add thier input.

    Hope this helps.

    We use siteID-### and remember to look at VisualRF (in Airwave) or a copy of the as-built to tell where they're supposed to be.


    something like: 091-ap001 and 087-ap124
