Aruba’s Adaptive Radio Management, ARM is responsible of transmit power management and planning of radio channels to access points.

It maintains two measures for every channel : a coverage index and an interference index [2] [3].

Transmit power control over a given channel is based mainly on the coverage index. Continue reading “Aruba’s Adaptive Radio Management for IEEE 802.11 Wlan networks”

TPC stands for Transmit Power Control. It’s a one of Cisco RRM, Radio Resources Management, techniques that are aimed at tackling interference, cross and co-channel, in Wlan networks.

RRM: TPC, CHD and DCA

It works tightly with CHD, Covergate Hole Detection, to optimize transmit power. TPC tends to minimize the transmit power and CHD to eliminate coverage holes by increasing it.
