Network Programmability

Set AP Bandwidth without setting a channel

We are pleased to announce a function that will improve your flexibility when configuring wireless networks. Previously when setting a static channel bandwidth for APs, you were required to set a channel as well. Now you may manually set the bandwidth on individual APs, and leave the channel as Use site setting and allow RRM to automatically select the best channels for your AP to serve WLANs on. This allows for maintaining some control over your APs while still utilizing the RRM to ensure that they are running on the most efficient channels to minimize impact of network functionality.

To set a manual bandwidth on your APs, navigate to the AP page and select an AP. Find the 2.4G Configuration and 5G Configuration boxes and select Enable. Next, select the desired Bandwidth and leave Channel as Use site setting.
