Configures RIFS (Reduced Interframe Spacing) parameters on this radio

This value determines whether interframe spacing is applied to access point transmitted or received packets, both, or none. Inter-frame spacing is the interval between two consecutive Ethernet frames that enable a brief recovery between packets and allow target devices to prepare for the reception of the next packet.

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Access Points — AP505i, AP510i, AP510e, AP560i, AP560h


rifs [none|rx-only|tx-only|tx-rx]


rifs [none|rx-only|tx-only|tx-rx]
rifs Configures RIFS parameters
none Disables support for RIFS. Consider setting the value to None for high-priority traffic to reduce packet delay.
rx-only Supports RIFS possession only
tx-only Supports RIFS transmission only
tx-rx Supports both RIFS transmission and possession (default setting)
