Use this command to configure 802.11v parameters on this WLAN. The IEEE 802.11 family of standards includes the 802.11v standard that allows client devices to exchange information about the network topology, including information about the RF environment, making each client network aware, facilitating overall improvement of the wireless network.

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Access Points — AP505i, AP510i/e, AP560i/h
  • Service Platforms — NX5500, NX7500, NX9500, NX9600, VX9000


802.11v [bss-transition|session-information-url <URL>]


802.11v [bss-transition|session-information-url <URL>]


Configures IEEE 802.11v parameters, such as 'bss-transition' and session-information-url'.


Enables BSS (Base station Subsystem) transition management capabilities on the WLAN APs. When enabled, WLAN APs send BSS Transition Management Request frames to 802.11v capable clients. These request frames suggest a specific AP, or a set of APs to which the client can transition to for better throughput and QoS (Quality of Service).


This feature is disabled by default.

session-information-url <URL>

Configures the session information URL.

This is the URL containing specific information about the client session. This is the URL to which the WLAN AP sends the BSS Transition Management Request frames.

  • <URL> - Specify the session information URL.
