Older APs a Culprit in Many Wi-Fi Performance Issues

Older APs a Culprit in Many Wi-Fi Performance Issues

Aging or outdated access points (APs) are often-overlooked sources of Wi-Fi performance issues. Older devices may only have radios in the 2.4GHz spectrum, or support only 802.11a/b/g/n, which reduces their throughput capabilities. APs that have reached end of support no longer get valuable features such as 802.11r/k/v, improved channel/power management, etc. In addition, growing numbers of users can exceed the capacity of older APs.

Follow Best Practices for WLAN Deployment

Follow Best Practices for WLAN Deployment

In a previous post, we explained how radio frequency (RF) interference can impact the health and performance of wireless LANs, and how cloud-based management tools streamline WLAN administration and troubleshooting. These tools enable monitoring of network performance, configuration of access points (APs) and other devices, and diagnosis of network issues from one centralized console.
