short-guard-
intvl-20MHz

Enables or disables use of short guard interval (400 ns) in 20 MHzMegahertz mode.

A guard interval is a period of time between transmissions that allows reflections from the previous data transmission to settle before an AP transmits data again. An AP identifies any signal content received inside this interval as unwanted inter-symbol interference, and rejects that data. The 802.11n802.11n is a wireless networking standard to improve network throughput over the two previous standards, 802.11a and 802.11g. With 802.11n, there will be a significant increase in the maximum raw data rate from 54 Mbps to 600 Mbps with the use of four spatial streams at a channel width of 40 MHz. standard specifies two guard intervals: 400 ns (short) and 800 ns (long). Enabling a short guard interval can decrease network overhead by reducing unnecessary idle time on each AP. Some outdoor deployments, may, however require a longer guard interval. If the short guard interval does not allow enough time for reflections to settle in your mesh deployment, inter-symbol interference values may increase and degrade throughput.

You can also use this profile to configure explicit transmit beamforming for 130 Series access points. When this feature is enabled, the AP coordinates the signals sent from each antenna so the signals focus on the receiver, improving radio range and performance.

The AP ensures that the steering matrix stays current by updating and recalibrating the steering matrix at regular intervals.

By default, 130 Series access points support both compressed and non-compressed steering information from clients. If you have many clients that can send only non-compressed steering reports, best practices are to retain the default settings, allowing the AP to support both types of steering reports. If all (or nearly all) of the AP’s clients are capable of sending compressed steering reports, best practices are to disable non-compressed steering in the AP’s HTHigh Throughput.
