Description

This command defines a provisioning profile for an AP or group of APs.

Syntax

Parameter Description Default Range
ap-poe-power-optimization

Enabling optimization minimizes the POE draw of the AP. Enabling optimization may disable some parts of the AP. Disabling ensures all features are enabled.

enabled: AP operates in normal mode.

Usage Guidelines

The AP provisioning profile allows you to define a set of provisioning parameters to an AP group. These settings can be saved or assigned to an AP group via the command ap-group <group> provisioning-profile <profile>.

In order to enable cellular uplink for a remote APRemote APs extend corporate network to the users working from home or at temporary work sites. Remote APs are deplyed at branch office sites and are connected to the central network on a WAN link. (RAP), the RAP must have the device driver for the USBUniversal Serial Bus. USB is a connection standard that offers a common interface for communication between the external devices and a computer. USB is the most common port used in the client devices. data card and the correct configuration parameters. ArubaOS includes device drivers for the most common hardware types, but you can use the usb commands in this profile to configure a RAP to recognize and use an unknown USB modem type.
