Does anyone know how many neighbors an AP need to be able to hear for RRM to manage its power output?
I have installed a few networks of LWAPP AP's (4.x & 5.x) and they just seem to sit there blasting out at full power.
The sites have usually been surveyed for Cisco LWAPP deployments. The channel configuration seems to be taken care of OK (1,6,11), but the power is just full volume.
I wondered if perhaps the issue is not just proximity to an AP neighbor, but perhaps the number of neighbors an AP can hear?
Any clarificatrion would be appreciated.
a good rule of thumb is -70 between all APs. This allows for most clients to be -65 or better. "Each AP must hear at least 2 other APs at -75 or better for auto RF to work properly" was the old way of assigning proper LWAPP density.
