Radio Selection for Mesh Links

The radio used for the mesh link can be configured in dual -5 GHz Gigahertz. or split-5 GHz Gigahertz. enabled access points. When dual 5 GHz Gigahertz. radio or split 5 GHz Gigahertz. radio is enabled on the access point, the operations on the 5 GHz Gigahertz. band Band refers to a specified range of frequencies of electromagnetic radiation. is split and carried out by two separate radios — lower 5 GHz Gigahertz. radio and upper 5 GHz Gigahertz. radio. The lower 5 GHz Gigahertz. radio operates on channels 32–64 and the upper 5 GHz Gigahertz. radio operates on channels 100-173. With two active 5 GHz Gigahertz. radios, the mesh link functions can be dedicated to one radio while the other radio can be used to service clients.

This feature is currently supported only on 340 Series and 550 Series access points.

The radio used for the mesh link can be configured using the rf-split5G-band-range command and can be configured only using the CLI Command-Line Interface. A console interface with a command line shell that allows users to execute text input as commands and convert these commands to appropriate functions.. This configuration can only be applied on dual-5 GHz Gigahertz. radio or split- 5 GHz Gigahertz. radio enabled APs. Apply the configuration and reboot the AP for the changes to take effect.

The following CLI Command-Line Interface. A console interface with a command line shell that allows users to execute text input as commands and convert these commands to appropriate functions. command configures the radio for mesh link:

(host) [mynode] (config) #ap mesh-cluster-profile cluster1

(host) [mynode] (Mesh Cluster profile "cluster1") rf-split5G-band-range { first | full | lower | upper }
