Maximum Client Capabilities Provides IT Departments with Additional Resources for Planning and Troubleshooting
Wi-Fi has become a term we use so often in our daily lives, especially in the technology industry, that we often think all clients are created equal. The simple truth is they are not. IoT clients generally have different capabilities than high-end laptops. Mobile devices likely have different capabilities over desktop machines. It’s important for Wi-Fi administrators to understand what kind of clients they have on the network, and what capabilities they have. By having a clear understanding of what their clients can do, they can make better planning decisions for future updates and network configuration changes
Aerohive recently introduced a tool to assist with this. It’s called Maximum Client Capabilities, and it’s built right into HiveManager. Aerohive’s machine-learning driven features of Network 360 and Client 360, utilize Maximum Client Capabilities to alleviate the expensive and time-consuming process of determining a client’s capabilities.
Maximum Client Capabilities can be used from the perspective of a single-client device in Aerohive’s Client 360 feature, or as a network-wide perspective within Network 360.
Here are some key benefits you will enjoy using Maximum Client Capabilities in HiveManager:
- Insights-based network performance optimization – automatic channel and power applications, Wi-Fi radio configuration optimization
- Detection of anomalies specific to certain types of devices
- Maintaining high SLA and mission-critical networks
