I want to control the WLC transmit power to centain distance, asume AP is supporting 20m, can we restrict the signal to 10m
What I mean to say in Aruba we can restrict the signal with the help of ":Transmit power" vlaue manipulation
How to do it on Cisco
Share the command/docuemnt for wlc.
You can achieve that in many vendors equipemnt. On the WLC, you can confiugre each radio of a given AP to a specific TA Power level if you want. On the GUI, click on the Wirless tab, then on the left side, click on the radio, either 802.11an or 802.11bgn. When you find the AP you want to tweak, you click on the blue triangle all the way on the right side. Click configure and set your power level.
Thanks for the suggestion.
As per your direction, I have checked in TX Power Level, Presently it is set to 1 & 1-8 value is avaiable.
Pls suggest whether 1 is lowest menas it will cover Lowest distance or reverse.
THanks for the same.
Assume when I set 1: if it cover 30m radius, If we set 2: it seems then it will cover approx 15m due to 50% emission.
I am fully agreeing on Site-Survey part for fine-tuning the parameter
What I mean to say that , If I set the value to 2, distnace covered with Value 2 should be less than if the vlaue is 1 ( depending on cell size fully agreeing on that part also)
We need to test the distance covered after changing the value with site-survey tool help for actual measurement.
That's not correct.
The power is proportional to the square of the distance.
In ideal situations, doubling the transmit power will make the distance 4 times longer. Decreasing the power to the half will make the distance 25% of the previous distance.
That's all depends on your RF environment though in real life.
Just to add...
Here is the doc for static change in trnsmit power on each AP:
