Description

A radio set with the airmatch ap freeze command uses a static radio configuration until those settings get explicitly canceled with the airmatch ap unfreeze command.

Syntax

Parameter

Description

freeze

Apply the specified AirMatch settings on the radio, then freeze those settings until they are manually removed.

NOTE: This parameter supports both single radio and dual-radio APs.

unfreeze

Remove AirMatch settings manually applied using the Freeze command.

NOTE: This parameter supports both single radio and dual-radio APs.

all-aps

Freeze or unfreeze AirMatch settings on all APs.

ap-group <ap-group>

Freeze or unfreeze AirMatch settings on the specified AP group

ap-name <ap-name>

Freeze or unfreeze AirMatch settings on the specified AP

ip-addr <ip-addr>

Freeze or unfreeze AirMatch settings on the AP with the specified IPv4 IP address.

ip6-addr <i6p-addr>

Freeze or unfreeze AirMatch settings on the AP with the specified IPv6 IP address.

band <band>

Set AirMatch settings for the specified radio bandBand refers to a specified range of frequencies of electromagnetic radiation.. Supported values are 2.4GHz and 5GHz. The radio bandBand refers to a specified range of frequencies of electromagnetic radiation. must be specified if you use the unfreeze parameter to unfreeze an AP radio.

The values, 5GHzu for upper-bandBand refers to a specified range of frequencies of electromagnetic radiation. radios and 5GHzl for lower-bandBand refers to a specified range of frequencies of electromagnetic radiation. radios are supported by the following APs.

AP-345

channel <channel>

Channel number for the AP 802.11a802.11a provides specifications for wireless systems. Networks using 802.11a operate at radio frequencies in the 5 GHz band. The specification uses a modulation scheme known as orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) that is especially well suited to use in office settings. The maximum data transfer rate is 54 Mbps./b/g, 802.11nor 802.11ac802.11ac is a wireless networking standard in the 802.11 family that provides high-throughput WLANs on the 5 GHz band. physical layer, (e.g. 36, 36+, 36E). The available channels depend on the regulatory domain (country).

eirp <dBm>

The transmission power level (in dBmDecibel-Milliwatts. dBm is a logarithmic measurement (integer) that is typically used in place of mW to represent receive-power level. AMP normalizes all signals to dBm, so that it is easy to evaluate performance between various vendors.) to be assigned to the AP radio(s). Starting with ArubaOS 8.2, you can specify EIRPEffective Isotropic Radiated Power or Equivalent Isotropic Radiated Power. EIRP refers to the output power generated when a signal is concentrated into a smaller area by the Antenna. values in increments of .1 dBmDecibel-Milliwatts. dBm is a logarithmic measurement (integer) that is typically used in place of mW to represent receive-power level. AMP normalizes all signals to dBm, so that it is easy to evaluate performance between various vendors.. 270 Series access points support both positive and negative EIRPEffective Isotropic Radiated Power or Equivalent Isotropic Radiated Power. EIRP refers to the output power generated when a signal is concentrated into a smaller area by the Antenna. values. All other APs support positive EIRPEffective Isotropic Radiated Power or Equivalent Isotropic Radiated Power. EIRP refers to the output power generated when a signal is concentrated into a smaller area by the Antenna. values only.

NOTE: The following legacy APs do not support advanced power controls, and can only be configured in positive EIRPEffective Isotropic Radiated Power or Equivalent Isotropic Radiated Power. EIRP refers to the output power generated when a signal is concentrated into a smaller area by the Antenna. values in increments of .5 dBmDecibel-Milliwatts. dBm is a logarithmic measurement (integer) that is typically used in place of mW to represent receive-power level. AMP normalizes all signals to dBm, so that it is easy to evaluate performance between various vendors..

Include this parameter to freeze or unfreeze AP channels on a local controller. This parameter is only valid if you freeze or unfreeze channels using the ap-group or all-aps options.

Usage Guidelines

The airmatch ap freeze command deploys the specified channel and EIRPEffective Isotropic Radiated Power or Equivalent Isotropic Radiated Power. EIRP refers to the output power generated when a signal is concentrated into a smaller area by the Antenna. values to a radio immediately, then freezes those values, regardless of whether the AirMatch RFRadio Frequency. RF refers to the electromagnetic wave frequencies within a range of 3 kHz to 300 GHz, including the frequencies used for communications or Radar signals. planning schedule is enabled or disabled. A radio set with the airmatch ap freeze command uses a static radio configuration until those settings get explicitly canceled with the airmatch ap unfreeze command. This command can be used to freeze either the channel or the EIRPEffective Isotropic Radiated Power or Equivalent Isotropic Radiated Power. EIRP refers to the output power generated when a signal is concentrated into a smaller area by the Antenna. value, or both values.  For example, you can freeze the channel on an AP radio, while allowing the EIRPEffective Isotropic Radiated Power or Equivalent Isotropic Radiated Power. EIRP refers to the output power generated when a signal is concentrated into a smaller area by the Antenna. values to be updated by AirMatch.

Example

(host)[mynode](config)# airmatch ap freeze {ip-addr <ip-addr>}|{ip6-addr <ip6-addr>}|{ap-name <ap-name>}|{ap-group <ap-group>}|{all-aps} {band <band>}|{channel <channel>}|{eirp <eirp>}{lms {lms-ip <lms-ip>}|{{lms-ipv6 <lms-ipv6>}}

Unfreezing a radio configuration with the airmatch ap unfreeze command does not mean that there will automatically be an immediate change in the channel and EIRPEffective Isotropic Radiated Power or Equivalent Isotropic Radiated Power. EIRP refers to the output power generated when a signal is concentrated into a smaller area by the Antenna. values for that radio. It does, however, mean that the AirMatch algorithm can assign a new set of values at the next update.

(host)[mynode](config)# airmatch ap unfreeze {ip-addr <ip-addr>}|{ip6-addr <ip6-addr>}|{ap-name <ap-name>}|{ap-group <ap-group>}|{all-aps} band <band> {channel <channel>}|{eirp <eirp>}{lms {lms-ip <lms-ip>}|{{lms-ipv6 <lms-ipv6>}}
