Configures the selected radio‘s transmit power. Use this command to manually set the transmit power of the selected radio, or select the smart mode by which the transmit power is determined.

Supported in the following platforms:

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


power [<1-30>|smart]


power [<1-30>|smart]
power Configures the selected radio‘s transmit power
<1-30> Configures the transmit power from 1 - 30 dBm (actual power could be lower based on regulatory restrictions)

For APs with dual or three radios, use this option to manually configure each radio with a unique transmit power in respect to its intended client support function.

smart Enables Smart RF to determine the optimum transmit power needed. Use this option to let Smart RF determine the selected radio's transmit power. If you are using this option for RF management, ensure that a Smart RF policy is configured and applied to the AP's RF Domain context. You can also use the default Smart RF policy.
Note: By default, APs use Smart RF to determine transmit power.
