Cisco Clean Air Express enables Cisco AP1700 Access Points to effectively detect RF interference. The user can easily detect the source and locate it on a map. The Access Point adjusts the setting automatically to optimize the coverage of the wireless network. Cisco Clean Air Express technology enables organizations to support their network more effectively and, at the same time, simplify their operation by means of basic spectrum analysis.

Using Cisco ClientLink 3.0 beam-forming technology, the Access Point optimally positions the SNR (Signal-to-Noise Ratio) for the client. The advantages for the user are fewer retries and higher data rates, significantly increasing the total capacity of the system and facilitating more efficient usage of spectrum resources.

Clean Air Cisco Clean Air technology allows a Cisco Unified Wireless Network to correlate the sources of malfunctions across the network. Because the network makes more intelligent decisions based on policies, problems can be solved more easily and RF interference is automatically avoided. Clean Air enables network administrators to find out more quickly and easily about malfunctions, as they receive notifications of decreased performance. In this way, organizations have the tools they need to optimally manage a mission-critical wireless network. At the same time, the day-to-day admin activities are made easier.

Optimized Roaming Cisco Optimized Roaming is the perfect solution for wireless clients who remain connected to a poorly performing Access Point for too long, instead of roaming to a different Access Point with a better and stronger signal. Active monitoring of RSSI data packages forces the client into disassociation the moment the RSSI falls below the configured threshold. When Optimized Roaming is enabled, clients who are able to keep the intensity of their signal below -80dBm (standard value as measured in the AP) receive a disassociation. This ensures the client the best possible connectivity and preserves the quality of experience. Furthermore, the overall performance of every Access Point improves due to a reduction in the number of airtime errors.
