Configures Smart RF sensitivity level. The sensitivity level determines Smart RF scanning and sampling aggressiveness. For example, a low sensitivity level indicates a less aggressive Smart-RF policy. This translates to fewer samples taken during off-channel scanning and short off-channel durations. When the sensitivity level is set to high, Smart-RF collects more samples, and remains off-channel longer.

The Smart RF sensitivity level options include low, medium, high, and custom. The custom option allows you to adjust the parameters and thresholds for interference recovery, coverage hole recovery, and neighbor recovery. However, the low, medium, and high settings still allow utilization of these features.

Supported in the following platforms:

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

Usage Guidelines

To enable the power and channel setting parameters, set sensitivity to custom or medium.

To enable the monitoring and scanning parameters, set sensitivity to custom.

To enable the neighbor recovery, interference and coverage hole recovery parameters, set sensitivity to custom.
