RRM feature

I am working on tunneling a wireless network with the following components:

2 AIR-WLC2106-K9
1 AIR-WLC2106-K
11 AIR-LAP1131AG-A-K9
10 AIR-LAP1252AG-T-K9

They are geographically distributed on four floors in the same building.

I have configured RRM feature on both 802.11 a/n and 802.11 b/g/n

After a while on 802.11 b/g/n, all controllers can see each other and one leader had been elected.

On the other hand, on 802.11 a/n there are 2 leaders. One leader has one of the controllers and the other has the other 2 controllers.

Any suggestions ?

can you confirm that the APs

can you confirm that the APs connected to controller impa-wireless1 and APs connected to controller          impa-wireless4  can hear each other with signal >-80 on the A frequencies ,

 

because on my point of view , the difference of a band and b/g band is the coverage area , as b/g cover a larger area , and this could effect the RRM .

Hall of Fame Super Gold

Go here.

 

Only Taiwan and Brazil uses the "-T" Regulatory Domain.  So whether or not you can get your APs to join the WLC and/or both radios to be enabled (with other conflicting Regulatory Domain) is something to be considered.

Can you help me find this

Can you help me find this information about "APs connected to controller impa-wireless1 and APs connected to controller  impa-wireless4  can hear each other with signal >-80 on the A frequencies "?

In fact, a group of APs are very far away from the other.

They are geographicaly on opposite extremes of the building.

Can this be the cause?

I have no idea what you are

I have no idea what you are trying to do with your APs but some of them will not join your WLC.   Your 1131 have "-A" Regulatory Domain and your 1250 have "-T" Regulatory Domain.  


I believe both Regulatory Domain are conflicting so either one will join the WLC.

Well I really have both AIR

Well I really have both AIR-LAP1252AG-T-K9 and AIR-LAP1131AG-A-K9 connected to 2 AIR-WLC2106-K9 and 1 AIR-WLC2112-K9.

It seams they are fine together.

Where can I find some doc about Regulatory Domain?

According to :

http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/wireless/aironet-1300-series/product_data_sheet0900aecd80537b6a.pdf

-A, -T, -Z and -N are possible Regulatory Domains

Only Taiwan and Brazil uses the "-T" Regulatory Domain.  So whether or not you can get your APs to join the WLC and/or both radios to be enabled (with other conflicting Regulatory Domain) is something to be considered.

Considering APs had already

Considering APs had already joined, what do you suggest to be aware of?

According to http://www.cisco.com/c/en/us/products/collateral/wireless/aironet-1300-series/product_data_sheet0900aecd80537b6a.pdf

802.11abgnac Standalone Access Points    Brazil -T

802.11gn Controller-Based Access Points    Brazil -A

This means that only Brazil -A APs are suposed to join controllers?

 

Cisco Employee

the AP will join the WLC ,

the AP will join the WLC , but the radio will be down, 

Cisco Employee

you can confirm this with a

you can confirm this with a site survey ,

I do not have a tool to site

I do not have a tool to site survey.

I know Cisco has one.

Can you tell me what is its name ?
