Has anyone read this new Cisco RRM doc? I assert that this paper is proof-positive that it’s more complex to optimize an enterprise RRM deployment than it is to design and implement a static network. Further, it’s been my experience that static designs are much higher performing and more stable than RRM-based networks. The extreme complexity of Cisco’s RRM means either that it will be sub-optimal most of the time because administrators don’t configure it right, and/or that the overwhelming complexity assures that it won’t work well even when it’s optimized when compared to a static deployment.
What are your thoughts?
BTW, disregard the countless errors in the document. Cisco must’ve forgotten to proofread it.
I know there are many variables, but do you have any documentation on doing a static design on let’s say a Cisco 5520 instead on relying on RRM?
Any such documents would be immediately refuted by Cisco (and their worshippers) as being technically incorrect (regardless of content), so nobody would bother wasting the time to write it…fortunately. The best we can do in such situations is to help our customers achieve optimal results, regardless of whether RRM is or isn’t in use.
Here are a couple examples of how we layout out channel plans in our design reports. The data has been modified for educational purposes.
I would recommend these to video chapters from the WiFi Foundations to better understanding channeling. You can cancel your membership with on 30 days without any strings or penalty. Let’s know if you are interested, and I can email you a coupon code!
Also, we are working on a series of free videos that will show how we create our channel plans. Stay tuned! Scott
