AP541N Cluster Q&A

AP541 Access Point Pro Series Q&A to share for keyword searches.

First, need to confirm the maximum units in a cluster is 10 (or if not, what the max # is).

Maximum # of units in a cluster is 10.

Second, they mentioned adaptive RAID and want to confirm how the overlapping channels are managed.  Will it auto adjust as needed or is the original channel assigned to the unit what remains?

Clustered units can be configured for radio management.  Channels can automatically be reassigned based on interference levels.  The time interval of the channel reassignment can be configured.  Also, channels can be locked down.

Third – How do the units communicate together?  What type of encryption is used between points?

Clustering information is shared securely amongst APs via SSL.

Fourth – Please confirm if there are any features for rogue access point detection.

Rogue AP detection is supported.

Re: AP541N Cluster Q&A

HI Steve,

I just spent some time setting this up for our demo site.

This shows that both ap's are on channel 6 and that they would like to change to 3 and 7.  It never actually seems to change the channels, will it? As well, why would we not, when putting it in a cluster, not force the units to use 1, 6, and 11?
