One of the effects of the hallway design is that Radio Resource Management (RRM) frequently doesn’t work as expected. It’s not that it doesn’t work, it’s just that hallway designs significantly limit the perspective of how APs see each other, which is primarily how RRM determines what it should be doing. Given that all the APs in the hall generally see each other at or about the same level, they all have a very similar view of the network. For illustration purposes, I’ve mocked up an imaginary residence hall. A specific hall that I visited recently was build with concrete walls. We will talk about some of the things I saw, and how they apply to this generic sample floor.
