AirMatch is a Radio Resource Management service. AirMatch provides automated RF optimization by adapting dynamically to the ever-changing RF environment at the network facility. The AirMatch service receives telemetry data from APs for radio measurements, channel range, transmit power range, operational conditions, and local RF events such as radar detection or high noise. Aruba Central supports the AirMatch service on APs to enable networks to adapt quickly to changing RF conditions, such as co-channel interference (CCI), coverage gaps, and roaming.
Use this procedure to enable AirMatch for automated RF planning.
