Wireless Network Manager 3.5 Administration Guide

RRM (Radio Resource Management)

The RRM page contains these sections:

  • Radio Resource Management
  • Dynamic Channel Selection

Global DCS helps choose the proper channel for the SonicWave devices. Based on the DCS algorithm, the system uses RRM to take action dynamically, directing the client device to the AP that can give it the best signal. Global DCS is not available on SonicWave appliances that do not have a scan radio, such as the SonicWave 224w.

Radio Resource Management

To configure the Radio Resource Management options

  1. Navigate to Policies > Policy Hierarchy > RRM.
  2. In the Radio Resource Management section, click the Enable Radio Resource Management - RRM slider to activate or deactivate RRM.
  3. In the Station Quality Threshold (1 - 50) field, enter the threshold value for the station quality. The default value is 20.
  4. In the Radio Quality Threshold (1 - 50) field, enter the threshold value for the radio quality. The default value is 20.

Dynamic Channel Selection

Wireless Network Manager supports Global DCS with RRM in the cloud.

To activate Dynamic Channel Selection

  1. Navigate to Policies > Policy Hierarchy > RRM.
  2. In the Dynamic Channel Selection section, click the DCS Mode Global slider to activate or deactivate Dynamic Channel Selection.

To configure Dynamic Channel Selection

  1. Navigate to Policies > Policy Hierarchy > RRM.
  2. Locate the Dynamic Channel Selection section.
  3. From the 2.4GHz Radio DCS Scheme list, select the mode you want to use:
    • Safe Mode: This is a conservative mode that switches to a better channel, but only when no client devices are connected. This is the default setting.
    • Steady Mode: This is a moderate mode that checks periodically for a better channel in the background.
    • Swift Mode: This is a more aggressive mode that switches to better channel as soon as a high level of noise or interference is detected on the current channel.
  4. From the 5 GHz Radio DCS Scheme list, select the mode you want to use:
    • Safe Mode: This is a conservative mode that switches to a better channel, but only when no client devices are connected. This is the default setting.
    • Steady Mode: This is a moderate mode that checks periodically for a better channel in the background.
    • Swift Mode: This is a more aggressive mode that switches to better channel as soon as a high level of noise or interference is detected on the current channel.
