RF Management for Stand-alone Controller Deployments

Aruba's ARM Adaptive Radio Management. ARM dynamically monitors and adjusts the network to ensure that all users are allowed ready access. It enables full utilization of the available spectrum to support maximum number of users by intelligently choosing the best RF channel and transmit power for APs in their current RF environment. technology maximizes WLAN Wireless Local Area Network. WLAN is a 802.11 standards-based LAN that the users access through a wireless connection. performance even in the highest traffic networks by dynamically and intelligently choosing the best 802.11 802.11 is an evolving family of specifications for wireless LANs developed by a working group of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE). 802.11 standards use the Ethernet protocol and Carrier Sense Multiple Access with collision avoidance (CSMA/CA) for path sharing. channel and transmit power for each Aruba AP in its current RF Radio 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. environment.

It enables full utilization of the available spectrum to support maximum number of users by intelligently choosing the best RF channel and transmit power for APs in their current RF environment. technology solves wireless networking challenges for stand-alone controllers in a large network deployment, dense deployment, or a network that must support VoIP Voice over IP. VoIP allows transmission of voice and multimedia content over an IP network. or mobile users. Deployments with dozens of users per access point can cause network contention and interference, but ARM Adaptive Radio Management. ARM dynamically monitors and adjusts the network to ensure that all users are allowed ready access. It enables full utilization of the available spectrum to support maximum number of users by intelligently choosing the best RF channel and transmit power for APs in their current RF environment. dynamically monitors and adjusts the network to ensure that all users are allowed ready access.

ARM Adaptive Radio Management. ARM dynamically monitors and adjusts the network to ensure that all users are allowed ready access. It enables full utilization of the available spectrum to support maximum number of users by intelligently choosing the best RF channel and transmit power for APs in their current RF environment. continually monitors and adjusts radio resources to provide optimal network performance for APs associated to a stand-alone controller. Automatic power control can adjust AP power settings if adjacent APs are added, removed, or moved to a new location within the network, minimizing interference with other WLAN Wireless Local Area Network. WLAN is a 802.11 standards-based LAN that the users access through a wireless connection. networks. ARM Adaptive Radio Management. ARM dynamically monitors and adjusts the network to ensure that all users are allowed ready access. It enables full utilization of the available spectrum to support maximum number of users by intelligently choosing the best RF channel and transmit power for APs in their current RF environment. adjusts only the affected APs, so the entire network does not require systemic changes.
