802.11 B Peak Power?

Unanswered Question

I was looking at the Cisco's 871w specification earlier. I noticed that it has a peak power of 245mW with the average of 80mW for the 802.11B.

What does the "peak" really mean? There is no where in the 871W CLI that will allow me to increase the power all the way to 245mw. I can only increase it to 20dbm/80mW.

Peak power is the maximum level of work or energy output that is measured during an observation period. You can use these command show environment power all to know more about power consumption by device. Peak power of 245mW is the max. peak power for Cisco's 871w and 80mW is default avarage power.
