Identify the equipment, applications, and methodologies involved in self-managing RF technologies (automated RF resource management)

  • Software and hardware solutions already exist that provide radio resource management (RRM), where access points can dynamically change their configuration based on accumulated RF information gathered from the access points radios.
  • Based on the accumulated RF information, the access points adjust their power
    and channel settings, dynamically changing the RF coverage cells.
  • RRM can address isolated WLAN capacity needs by utilizing dynamic load balancing of clients between the access points.
  • When implemented, RRM provides automatic cell sizing, automatic monitoring, troubleshooting, and optimization of the RF environment, which can best be described as a self-organizing wireless LAN.
  • Dynamic RF capabilities are used post-deployment to automatically make necessary channel and power changes in a live operational environment.
