What To Look For In WLAN Spectrum Management

By  Chris Kozup, Senior Manager, Mobility Solutions, Cisco — April 26, 2010

As wireless LANs become more critical to delivering core business applications, IT requires that these wireless networks be reliable, yet simple to maintain.
 
The good news is that wireless LANs have evolved significantly over the years. Predicting radio frequency performance was once an art, but has now become a science.
 
Wireless systems automate much of the management and provisioning of the wireless network. This automation combines enhancements in automated spectrum management, interference capabilities and device optimization to remove much of the complexity and guesswork from wireless operations and frees resources for other activities.
 
Spectrum management creates an environment that is completely self-configuring, self-optimizing, and self-healing and simplifies wireless operation through the following capabilities:
  • Dynamic channel assignment
  • Interference detection and avoidance
  • Dynamic transmit power control
  • Coverage hole detection and correction
  • Client and network load balancing
