show ap mesh-radio-profile [<profile>]

Description

Show configuration settings for a mesh radio profile.

Syntax

Parameter

Description

<profile>

Name of a mesh radio profile.

Usage Guidelines

The radio profile determines the radio frequency/channel used only by mesh nodes to establish mesh links. Mesh nodes operating in different cluster profiles can share the same radio profile. Conversely, mesh portals using the same cluster profile can be assigned different mesh radio profiles to achieve frequency separation.

The command show ap mesh-radio-profile displays a list of all mesh radio profiles configured on the controller, including the number of references to each profile and each profile’s status. Include the optional <profile> parameter to show detailed settings for an individual mesh radio profile.

Example

The example below shows the configuration settings for the mesh cluster profile “default”.

Parameter

Description

802.11a Transmit Rates

Indicates the transmit rates for the 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. radio. The AP attempts to use the highest transmission rate to establish a mesh link. If a rate is unavailable, the AP goes through the list and uses the next highest rate.

802.11g Transmit Rates

Indicates the transmit rates for the 802.11g802.11g offers transmission over relatively short distances at up to 54 Mbps, compared with the 11 Mbps theoretical maximum of 802.11b standard. 802.11g employs Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing (OFDM), the modulation scheme used in 802.11a, to obtain higher data speed. Computers or terminals set up for 802.11g can fall back to speed of 11 Mbps, so that 802.11b and 802.11g devices can be compatible within a single network. radio. The AP attempts to use the highest transmission rate to establish a mesh link. If a rate is unavailable, the AP goes through the list and uses the next highest rate.

Allowed VLANs on mesh link

Specify a list of VLANVirtual Local Area Network. In computer networking, a single Layer 2 network may be partitioned to create multiple distinct broadcast domains, which are mutually isolated so that packets can only pass between them through one or more routers; such a domain is referred to as a Virtual Local Area Network, Virtual LAN, or VLAN. IDs that can be used by a mesh link on APs associated with this mesh radio profile

BC/MC Rate Optimization

If enabled, the mesh node will use the slowest associated mesh-point rate for broadcast/multicast data (rather than minimum).

Heartbeat Threshold

Indicates the maximum number of heartbeat messages that can be lost between neighboring mesh nodes before the mesh node is considered inactive and is dropped as a mesh neighbor.

Link Threshold

Indicates the threshold for the lowest acceptable Receive Signal Strength Indicator (RSSIReceived Signal Strength Indicator. RSSI is a mechanism by which RF energy is measured by the circuitry on a wireless NIC (0-255). The RSSI is not standard across vendors. Each vendor determines its own RSSI scale/values.) value. Links that drop below this threshold will have an increased link cost. Default: 12.

Maximum Children

The maximum number of children a mesh portal can accept.

Maximum Hop Count

The maximum number of hops allowed between a mesh point and a mesh portal.

Mesh Private Vlan

This parameter is experimental and reserved for future use.

Mesh High-throughput SSID Profile

The High-throughput SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. Profile associated with this mesh radio profile.

Mesh Survivability

This parameter shows if mesh points and portals can become active even if the controller cannot be reached by bridging LANLocal Area Network. A LAN is a network of connected devices within a distinct geographic area such as an office or a commercial establishment and share a common communications line or wireless link to a server. traffic. This is a beta feature that is disabled by default; it should not be enabled unless you are instructed to do so by Aruba technical support.

Metric algorithm

Algorithm used by a mesh node to select its parent.

Rate Optimization for delivering EAPOL frames and mesh echoes

If this option is enabled, mesh APs will use a more conservative rate for more reliable delivery of EAPOL frames.

Reselection Mode

Specifies the one of the following methods used to find a better mesh link.

startup-sub-threshold: When bringing up the mesh network, mesh nodes have 3 minutes to find a better uplink. After that time, each mesh node evaluates alternative links only if the existing uplink falls below the configured threshold level (the link becomes a sub-threshold link). The reselection process is canceled if the average RSSIReceived Signal Strength Indicator. RSSI is a mechanism by which RF energy is measured by the circuitry on a wireless NIC (0-255). The RSSI is not standard across vendors. Each vendor determines its own RSSI scale/values. rises on the existing uplink rises above the configured link threshold.

reselect-any-time: Connected mesh nodes evaluate alternative mesh links every 30 seconds. If a mesh node finds a better uplink, the mesh node connects to the new parent to create an improved path to the mesh portal.

reselect-never: Connected mesh nodes do not evaluate other mesh links to create an improved path to the mesh portal.

subthreshold-only: Connected mesh nodes evaluate alternative links only if the existing uplink becomes a sub-threshold link.

Retry Limit

Maximum number of times a mesh node can re-send a packet.

RTS Threshold

The packet size sent by mesh nodes. Mesh nodes transmitting frames larger than this threshold must issue request to send (RTSRequest to Send. RTS refers to the data transmission and protection mechanism used by the 802.11 wireless networking protocol to prevent frame collision occurrences. See CTS.) and wait for other mesh nodes to respond with clear to send (CTSClear to Send. The CTS refers to the data transmission and protection mechanism used by the 802.11 wireless networking protocol to prevent frame collision occurrences. See RTS. ) to begin transmission. This helps prevent mid-air collisions.
