What powerlevels on multidomain WLCs?

Hi All,

I have a question about controllers with access points from multiple regulatory domains.

If my controller hosts access points from more than one reg. domain, I have to check the country in the country list of the controller.

I also have to set the country on the AP itself.

Now suppose, if I use the AP-A in domain A and AP-E in domain E.
suppose domain A allows higher powerlevels as domain E.
Can AP-A transmit on powerlevels above the E-Domains max powerlevel?

In fact, my WLC will serve AP’s from 3 different Domains, multi different countries.

Thanks

Willem

They will operate only common values.  For example, if you have -A and -N in the same controllers and your controller is set of -N, then 802.11a on -A will be disabled because the allowed values are not the same.

Thanks Leo

Where can I find these value's, especialy the power levels?

Ok, I found a list of EIRP levels but its very old

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/td/docs/wireless/wcs/3-2/configuration/guide/wcscfg32/wcscod.pdf

Looking for a newer list now.

Re: What powerlevels on multidomain WLCs?

There are various docs out there, not knowing what AP's you have makes it difficult. TX power can be found in this doc or on the AP's datasheet. This is old,but it don't know what AP's you have.

Sorry Scott,

ofcourse, new Accesspoint  like 2600/3600 or 3700, so x600 /x700 series.

Thanks

Believe it or not, I learn more from the CSC Forums than anywhere else.

Don't get me started with "Why don't you reach out to your SE/AM?".

...your controller is set of -N...

What wil be the best Reg. Domain if I use AP's in -A -E and -S Domains?

Can the controller domain be changed after setup?

My recommendation is the same as previous:  If have multiple APs with different (and conflicting) regulatory domains and you only have one WLC, then run the others as autonomous.

I typically will try to have a WLC for each country code that are alike.  Mixing is such a bad idea, because now you are limited.

Thanks,

Scott
