Device Config Commands

Sets the building floor name representative of the location within the area or building the device (controller, service platform, or access point) is physically deployed. Assigning a building floor name is helpful when grouping devices in RF Domains and profiles, as devices on the same physical building floor may need to share specific configuration parameters in respect to radio transmission and interference requirements specific to that location.

Supported in the following platforms:

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

floor <FLOOR-NAME> <1-4094> Sets the building floor name where the device is deployed
  • <1-4094> – Sets a numerical floor designation in respect to the floor‘s actual location within a building. Specify a value from 1 - 4094. The default setting is the 1st floor.
