Parameter Description
Time of Change

Timestamp showing the date and time the client match feature associated the client to a different AP radio.

Station

Reason

Reason why the client match feature made the change. Possible reasons include:

Sticky: A mobile roaming client was staying associated (sticking) to a sub-optimal AP for too long.

Band Balance: A dual-bandBand refers to a specified range of frequencies of electromagnetic radiation. capable client was steered toward a different radio to balance the load between the two radios on a single AP.

Load Balance: Client match moved the client to a different AP, based upon the load on APs in the client's 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. neighborhood, and the SNRSignal-to-Noise Ratio. SNR is used for comparing the level of a desired signal with the level of background noise. levels the client detected from each underutilized AP.

MU-MIMO is a set of multiple-input and multiple-output technologies for wireless communication, in which users or wireless terminals with one or more antennas communicate with each other. capable client was steered to a MU-MIMOMulti-User Multiple-Input Multiple-Output. MU-MIMO is a set of multiple-input and multiple-output technologies for wireless communication, in which users or wireless terminals with one or more antennas communicate with each other. capable AP.

HE-Steer: A HE capable client was steered to a HE capable AP on the same bandBand refers to a specified range of frequencies of electromagnetic radiation..

Status/Roam Time/Mode

Signal (S/T/A/As)

The output of this column shows the following values:

S: Radio signal strength of the source AP

T: Radio signal strength of the target AP

A: Radio signal strength of the AP that the client is actually associated to

AS : Radio signal strength of the target AP at steer completion

BandBand refers to a specified range of frequencies of electromagnetic radiation. (S/T/A)

A: Radio frequency bandBand refers to a specified range of frequencies of electromagnetic radiation. of the AP that the client is actually associated to

Radio BSSIDBasic Service Set Identifier. The BSSID identifies a particular BSS within an area. In infrastructure BSS networks, the BSSID is the MAC address of the AP. In independent BSS or ad hoc networks, the BSSID is generated randomly. (S/T/A)

The output of this column shows the following values:
