Roaming Assist Policy

This chapter summarizes the Roaming Assist Policy commands in the CLI command structure.

By constantly monitoring a client's packets and the RSSI (received signal strength indicator) of a given client by a group of access points, decision can be made on the optimal access point to which the client needs to roam. Then forcefully direct the client to the optimal access point.

The threshold intervals are configurable and can be adjusted based on the client load.

Use the (config) instance to configure a roaming assist policy. To navigate to the roaming assist policy configuration instance, use the following commands:

<DEVICE> (config) roaming-assist-policy <ROAMING-ASSIST-POLICY-NAME>
nx9500-6C8809(config)roaming-assist-policy test
