3.1.7 dot11n primary-channel

Command: dot11n primary-channel {lower | upper}
no dot11n primary-channel
Function: Configure the different primary broadband channels. The no command resets the primary broadband to default.
Parameters:

  • lower: in the 40MHz channel, choose the lower bandwidth of 20MHz as the primary broadband.
  • upper: in the 40MHz channel, choose the higher bandwidth of 20MHz as the primary broadband.

Command mode: Radio Configuration Mode
Default: The main broadband is lower.
Usage guide: This command is relevant to IEEE802.11n. When binding two adjacent bandwidths of 20MHz to form a bandwidth of 40MHz, it can be used as two bandwidths of 20MHz in the actual work (using one as the main broadband and the other as the secondary broadband). When receiving and sending data, the bandwidth of 40MHz can work and the single bandwidth of 20MHz can also work.
Example: In the 40MHz channel, choose the higher bandwidth of 20Mhz as the primary broadband.

  • disable: disable the interval function and configure the interval as 800ns.

Command mode: Radio Configuration Mode
Default: Enabled.
Usage guide: This command is relevant to IEEE802.11n. Short GI (Guard Interval) is the improvement of 802.11n over 802.11a/g. The GI of 11a/g is 800ns and the Short GI is 400ns. When using Short GI, the speed can be increased by 10%. The Short GI is unrelated to the bandwidth. It supports 20MHz and 40MHz.

difference between the disable and no command when using this command.
Example: Disable the STBC function.

active500EM(config-ap-profile-radio)#dotn11 stbc-mode disable

 

3.1.10 dtim-period

Command: dtim-period <1-255>

unit is a beacon interval.
Example: Configure the DTIM period as 60 beacons

active500EM(config-ap-profile-radio)#dtim-period 60

Function: Configure the repeated frames threshold. The no command resets to default.
Parameters:

  • <1-100>: the repeated frames threshold configured.

Command mode: Wireless Global Mode
Default: 5.
Usage guide: Configure the repeated frames threshold and determine if the repeated frames threshold needs to change when adjusting power. If the repeated frames are greater than the configuration threshold, power should be increased; otherwise, decrease power.
Example: Configure the repeated frames threshold to 10.

3.5.4 power-plan interval

Command: power-plan interval <15-1440>
no power-plan interval
Function: Configure the automatic power adjustment cycle. The no command resets to default.
Parameters:

  • <15-1440>: configure the automatic power adjustment cycle; the unit is minutes.

Command mode: Wireless Global Mode
Default: 15.
Usage guide: When the mode is periodic, configure the adjustment cycle.
Example: Configure the automatic power adjustment cycle as 60 minutes.

3.5.5 power-plan mode

Command: power-plan mode {interval | manual}
Function: Configure the automatic power adjustment.
Parameters:

  • interval: configure the mode as periodic.
  • manual: configure the mode as manual.

Command mode: Wireless Global Mode
Default: Manual.
Usage guide: According to the parameter set, issue the automatic power adjustment algorithm. There are two trigger modes: periodic and manual mode. In periodic mode, configure the adjustment cycle as 60 minutes, the automatic power adjustment will occur once every 60 minutes. In manual mode, execute the automatic power adjustment command and manually issue the automatic power adjustment algorithm.
Example: Configure the power plan mode as periodic.

3.5.6 power-plan retry-threshold

Command: power-plan retry-threshold <1-100>
no power-plan retry-threshold
Function: Configure the retry threshold. The no command resets to the default of 5.
Parameters:

  • <1-100>: the retry threshold.

Command mode: Wireless Global Mode
Default: 5.
Usage guide: Configure the retry threshold to determine if the retry number should be reset when adjusting power. If the retry number is greater than the threshold configured, it needs to increase power; otherwise, decrease power.
Example: Configure the reissued threshold as 100.

3.5.8 show wireless power-plan proposed

Command: show wireless power-plan proposed
Function: Display status and the proposed power plan.
Parameters: None.
Command mode: Admin Mode
Default: None.
Usage guide: After configuring the power plan, run this command to display the proposed power plan.
Example: Configure the new power plan, then show the proposed power plan.

3.5.9 wireless power-plan

Command: wireless power-plan {apply | clear | start}
Function: Configure the power plan manually. When configuration is complete, if there is an AP that needs to be adjusted, the controller will not send a message to automatically change the power plan.
Parameters:

  • apply: use the existing power adjustment plan.
  • clear: clear the existing power adjustment plan.
  • start: use the new power adjustment plan.

Command mode: Admin Mode
Default: None.
Usage guide: This command is effective only on the controller. The command can be executed with start, clear, and apply. If entering the command of start, the power plan automatically issues the power plan and returns to the AP that needs to be adjusted; if inputting clear, clear the result of the power plan; if inputting apply, receive the power plan, and apply it to the relevant AP.
Example: Issue the new power plan after the AC gives the new plan. Apply the new power plan by entering apply.
