Syntax

Parameter

Description

Default

<profile-name>

Name of this instance of the profile. The name must be 1-63 characters.

“default”

ap-chan-rpt-11a <ap-chan-rpt-11a>

This value is sent in the Channel field of the AP channel reports on the 'A' radio. You can specify values in the range 34 to 165.

36

bcn-measurement-mode

Configures a beacon measurement mode for the profile.

active-all-ch—Enables active beacon measurement mode. In this mode, the client sends a probe request to the broadcast destination address on all supported channels, sets a measurement duration timer, and, at the end of the measurement duration, compiles all received beacons or probe response with the requested SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. and 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. into a measurement report.

active-ch-rpt—In this mode, the client and returns a report that contains a list of channels in a regulatory class where a client is likely to find an AP, including the AP transmitting the AP channel report.

beacon-table—Enables beacon-table beacon measurement mode. In this mode, the client measures beacons and returns a report with stored beacon information for any supported channel with the requested SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. and 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.. The client does not perform any additional measurements.

passive—Enables passive beacon measurement mode. In this mode, the client sets a measurement duration timer, and, at the end of the measurement duration, compiles all received beacons or probe response with the requested SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. and 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. into a measurement report.

NOTE: If a station doesn't support the selected measurement mode, it returns a Beacon Measurement Report with the Incapable bit set in the Measurement Report Mode field. Default Mode: beacon-table

 

beacon-table

beacon-table

Enables beacon-table beacon measurement mode. In this mode, the client measures beacons and returns a report with stored beacon information for any supported channel with the requested SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. and 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.. The client does not perform any additional measurements. This is the default beacon measurement mode.

NOTE: If a station doesn't support beacon-table able measurement mode, it returns a Beacon Measurement Report with the Incapable bit set in the Measurement Report Mode field.

passive

Enables passive beacon measurement mode. In this mode, the client sets a measurement duration timer, and, at the end of the measurement duration, compiles all received beacons or probe response with the requested SSIDService Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. and 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. into a measurement report.

NOTE: If a station doesn't support passive measurement mode, it returns a Beacon Measurement Report with the Incapable bit set in the Measurement Report Mode field.

clone <profile-name>

Copy settings from another specified 802.11k802.11k is an IEEE standard that enables APs and client devices to discover the best available radio resources for seamless BSS transition in a WLAN. profile.

bcn-req-chan-11a <bcn-req-chan-11a>

This value is sent in the Channel field of the beacon requests on the 'A' radio. You can specify values in the range 34 to 165.

36
bcn-req-chan-11bg <bcn-req-chan-11bg>

This value is sent in the Channel field of the Beacon Requests on the BG radio. You can specify values in the range 1 to 14 or 0 to 255.

1

bcn-req-time <bcn-req-time>

This option configures the time duration between two consecutive beacon requests sent to a802.11k client. By default, the beacon requests are sent to a802.11k client every 60 seconds. However, if a different value is required, the bcn-req-time option can be used.

This permits values in the range from 10 seconds to 200 seconds.

60 seconds

bcn-rpt-req-profile <profile-name>

Beacon Report Request Settings for the selected profile.

—-

dot11k-enable

Enables the 802.11K feature. This feature is disabled by default.

Disabled

force-dissasoc

This feature allows the AP to forcefully disassociate on-hook voice clients (clients that are not on a call) after period of inactivity.

Without the forced disassociation feature, if an AP has reached its CACCall Admission Control. CAC regulates traffic volume in voice communications. CAC can also be used to ensure or maintain a certain level of audio quality in voice communications networks. limits and an on-hook voice client wants to start a new call, that client may be denied. If forced disassociation is enabled, those clients can associate to a neighboring AP that can fulfill their QoSQuality of Service. It refers to the capability of a network to provide better service and performance to a specific network traffic over various technologies. requirements.

NOTE: This feature is disabled by default.

Disabled

lm-req-time <lm-req-time>

This option configures the time duration between two consecutive link measurement requests sent to an 802.11k802.11k is an IEEE standard that enables APs and client devices to discover the best available radio resources for seamless BSS transition in a WLAN. client. By default, link measurement requests are sent to a 802.11k802.11k is an IEEE standard that enables APs and client devices to discover the best available radio resources for seamless BSS transition in a WLAN. client every 61 seconds. However, you can use the lm-req-time option to specify different time interval.

This permits values in the range from 10 to 200 seconds.

This option configures the time duration between two consecutive transmit stream measurement requests sent to a 802.11k802.11k is an IEEE standard that enables APs and client devices to discover the best available radio resources for seamless BSS transition in a WLAN. client. By default, the transmit stream measurement requests are sent to a 802.11k802.11k is an IEEE standard that enables APs and client devices to discover the best available radio resources for seamless BSS transition in a WLAN. client every 90 seconds. However, you can use the tsm-req time option to specify a different time interval.

This permits values in the range from 10 seconds to 200 seconds.

Usage Guidelines

In a 802.11k802.11k is an IEEE standard that enables APs and client devices to discover the best available radio resources for seamless BSS transition in a WLAN. network, if the AP with the strongest signal is reaches its maximum capacity, clients may connect to an under utilized AP with a weaker signal. A 802.11k802.11k is an IEEE standard that enables APs and client devices to discover the best available radio resources for seamless BSS transition in a WLAN. profile can assigned to each virtual AP.

Example

The following command enables the 802.11k802.11k is an IEEE standard that enables APs and client devices to discover the best available radio resources for seamless BSS transition in a WLAN. feature on the 802.11k802.11k is an IEEE standard that enables APs and client devices to discover the best available radio resources for seamless BSS transition in a WLAN. profile and configures the beacon measurement mode and specifies the time interval for beacon, link, and transmit stream measurement requests.
