  38. Highest Performance Airtime Fairness and band steering (ARM) allows more clients move faster on the network. Client Match improves wireless performance by removing sticky client OnlyWLAN with auto-optimized Wi-Fi channel and power that avoids interference for faster performance Automatic voice/video QoS ensures Fast, smooth communication. Only WLAN with always-on scanning Detects interference without disconnecting clients

  39. Most Resilient • Only WLAN 100% functional without WAN • User authentication • WIPS scanning • Local management • Only WLAN with Redundant wired uplinks • Two ISPs for max uptime • Dual live links • Only WLAN with Fast failover VPN to central services • Plus, 3G/4G uplink option • 100% investment protection with AP hardware

  40. Client Match Before Client Match lots of clients connect to one IAP. • Problem: • Similar to AOS, IAP clients could experience connectivity and performance issues due to stickiness, improper band usage, and improper load balancing • Challenge: • IAP must solve this problem without depending on any external, centralized data structure • Solution: • A distributed algorithm that group APs into RF-neighborhoods and co-decide which AP should service which clients After enabling Client Match for about 5 minutes, the clients connect to the IAPs evenly.
