ClientMatch VBR

Hi All!


About ClientMatch, what is VBR? 


In MBC 6.3, in the ARM chapter, the slide tells "The Controller builds VBR  a client centric view of the network and shares it with the associated AP"


Can someone explain this to me?


Best Regards.

Re: ClientMatch VBR

VBR stands for Virtual Beacon Report.   


Each AP maintains a probe table for all the clients it has received a probe request from.    The table includes the client MAC, SNR, and timestamp.   The controller correleates all the probe tables from all APs into the VBR.   The controller sends the pertintent portions of the VBR to each AP.
