Configuring 802.11k parameters in InstantOS

Can 802.11k parameters be configured in Aruba Instant?

 

Specifically, I wish to apply the recommended values in Aruba's document "RF and Roaming Optimization for Aruba 802.11ac Networks":

 

Enable 11k with these additional changes:
• Beacon report set to Active Channel Report.
• Disable Quiet Information Element parameter from the Radio Resource Management profile

You can find 802.11k settings in the SSID settings at the security tab.

Thanks but I do not find any 802.11k settings there, only the box to enable or disable 802.11k.

 

Firmware is 8.3.0.6_69128 (latest according to GUI automatic check)

Hardware is IAP-315-RW

Did you click on Advanced at the bottom of the screen? What kind of authentication are you using?

I think out of the box it is disabled.

I find no advanced options for the Security tab, only the General/ WLAN settings tab.

 

For both WPA-2 Enterprise and WPA-2 Personal, no options appear for 802.11k other than enable or disable.  802.11k is indeed disabled by default, enabling it does not reveal any further options.


Screenshots attached.

The page here:  https://www.arubanetworks.com/techdocs/Instant_83_WebHelp/Content/Instant_UG/WLAN_SSID_conf/Support%20for%20dot11r.htm?Highlight=802.11k shows what 802.11k parameters are supported when 802.11k is enabled on Aruba Instant.

Re: Configuring 802.11k parameters in InstantOS

This page states that Quiet IE is supported, and makes no mention of measurement mode for beacon reports.

 

So in other words, these parameters cannot be configured in Instant? And therefore Aruba's recommendations cannot be implemented?
