Questions on the Wireless Installation.

Experts,

We have a good number of wireless access point installed on our network and I want to make sure that these AP's are not conflicting with each other.

Why do all the wireless access points show me the channel as 1(for 2.4 GHz)? and channel 36(for 5GHz)?

If I run a WiFi analyses what does the singnal strength in dBm really indicate? Is -70 good?

 

regards,

Nik

You can configure your WLC

You can configure your WLC for Radio Resource Manager (RRM) and Dynamic Channel Assignment (DCA).

The radio resource management (RRM) software embedded in the controller acts as a built-in RF engineer to consistently provide real-time RF management of your wireless network.

RRM automatically detects and configures new controllers and lightweight access points as they are added to the network. It then automatically adjusts associated and nearby lightweight access points to optimize coverage and capacity.

The controller's dynamic channel assignment (DCA) capabilities are also useful in minimizing adjacent channel interference between access points. For example, two overlapping channels in the 802.11b/g band, such as 1 and 2, cannot both simultaneously use 11/54 Mbps. By effectively reassigning channels, the controller keeps adjacent channels separated.

Check more details on RRM and DCA in document.
