AP Naming Convention

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?

Re: AP Naming Convention

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.

Re: AP Naming Convention

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
