Usage Guidelines

When you enable beamforming on the network, it is automatically enabled for all the radios applicable to that network type.

Follow these guidelines for using beamforming:

  • Beamforming is supported for legacy orthogonal frequency-division multiplexing (OFDM) data rates (6, 9, 12, 18, 24, 36, 48, and 54 Mbps).

    Note


    Beamforming is not supported for Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum data rates ( 1 and 2 Mbps) and Complementary-Code Key (CCK) data rates (5.5 and 11 Mbps).


  • Beamforming is supported only on access points that support 802.11n (AP1260, AP3500, and AP3600).
  • Two or more antennas must be enabled for transmission.
  • All three antennas must be enabled for reception.
  • OFDM rates must be enabled. If the antenna configuration restricts operation to a single transmit antenna, or if OFDM rates are disabled, beamforming is not used.

Examples

This example shows how to enable beamforming on the 5 GHz band:

Controller(config)# ap dot11 5ghz beamforming

  • 0—Best effort
  • 1—Background
  • 2—Spare
  • 3—Excellent effort
  • 4—Controlled load
  • 5—Video, less than 100-ms latency and jitter
  • 6—Voice, less than 10-ms latency and jitter

5ghz

Specifies the 5 GHz band.

custom

Specifies custom Layer 2 client roaming RF parameters.

min-rssi

Minimum received signal strength indicator (RSSI) that is required for the client to associate to the access point. If the client’s average received signal power dips below this threshold, reliable communication is usually impossible. Clients must already have found and roamed to another access point with a stronger signal before the minimum RSSI value is reached. The valid range is –80 to –90 dBm, and the default value is –85 dBm.

roam-hyst

How much greater the signal strength of a neighboring access point must be in order for the client to roam to it. This parameter is intended to reduce the amount of roaming between access points if the client is physically located on or near the border between the two access points. The valid range is 2 to 4 dB, and the default value is 2 dB.

scan-thresh

Minimum RSSI that is allowed before the client should roam to a better access point. When the RSSI drops below the specified value, the client must be able to roam to a better access point within the specified transition time. This parameter also provides a power-save method to minimize the time that the client spends in active or passive scanning. For example, the client can scan slowly when the RSSI is above the threshold and scan more rapidly when the RSSI is below the threshold. The valid range is –70 to –77 dBm, and the default value is –72 dBm.

trans-time

Maximum time allowed for the client to detect a suitable neighboring access point to roam to and to complete the roam, whenever the RSSI from the client’s associated access point is below the scan threshold. The valid range is 1 to 10 seconds, and the default value is 5 seconds.

Cisco IOS XE 3.2SE

This command was introduced.

Usage Guidelines

If you enable coverage hole detection, the controller automatically determines, based on data that is received from the access points, whether any access points have clients that are potentially located in areas with poor coverage.

If both the number and percentage of failed packets exceed the values that you entered in the ap dot11 24ghz rrm coverage data packet-count count and ap dot11 24ghz rrm coverage data fail-percentage percentage commands for a 5-second period, the client is considered to be in a pre-alarm condition. The controller uses this information to distinguish between real and false coverage holes and excludes clients with poor roaming logic. A coverage hole is detected if both the number and percentage of failed clients meet or exceed the values entered in the ap dot11 24ghz rrm coverage exception and ap dot11 24ghz rrm coverage level commands over a 90-second period. The controller determines whether the coverage hole can be corrected and, if appropriate, mitigates the coverage hole by increasing the transmit power level for that specific access point.

Examples

This example shows how to specify the percentage of clients for an access point 2.4 GHz radio that is experiencing a low signal level:

Controller# ap name AP2 dot11 24ghz rrm coverage exception 25%
