  • Patent number: 11153761
    Abstract: Spectrum management may be provided. A first Radio Frequency (RF) event metric may be received from a first service end point. The first RF event metric may comprise a time a first event occurred. A second RF event metric may be received from a second service end point. The second RF event metric may comprise a time a second event occurred. Then it may be determined that the time the first event occurred and the time the second event occurred are substantially congruent. Next, in response to determining that the time the first event occurred and the time the second event occurred are substantially congruent, the first service end point and the second service end point may be grouped in a first RF group thereby allowing frequency re-use across similar RF groups. Then different channels may be assigned to the first service end point and the second service end point.

  • Publication number: 20210289397
    Abstract: Systems, methods, computer-readable media, and devices are disclosed for collecting access point telemetry. A first access point is identified that is associated with a single instance on a pod. A hash identifier is identified, where the hash identifier identifies a radio frequency (RF) neighborhood of the first access point based on a geographical location of the first access point. Subsequent access point members of the RF neighborhood are dynamically determined by dynamically assigning a second access point to the RF neighborhood, the dynamic assignment based on the second access point being within a threshold geographical location to the first access point. Telemetry from the second access point is directed towards the single instance on the pod, where the pod receives telemetry for all access points in the dynamically determined RF neighborhood.

  • Publication number: 20210195562
    Abstract: In dense Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) deployments, Access Points (APs) in other Extended Service Sets (ESSs) can be hidden (a first AP does not receive signals from a third AP). However, these APs in other ESSs can still interfere with communications between the third AP and the devices communicating with the first AP. To improve service to that device in that situation, the first AP needs information about the third AP in the first AP's decision making processes. In these situations, a second AP, in contact with the third AP, can share information about the third AP with the first AP so that the first AP can avoid colliding with the third AP.

  • Patent number: 11006430
    Abstract: Techniques for a machine learning event-driven radio resource management (ED-RRM) module which provides analysis of interference events in a network system are described. The network system reacts to the detection of interference in a network system and uses multiple input parameters to determine a type of device creating the interference, a predicted duration of the interference, and an ED-RRM decision on whether to activate the radio resource management (RRM) processes to alter the network transmission or block the RRM processes to conserve system resources for the network system.

  • Publication number: 20200389853
    Abstract: Presented herein are techniques for using mobile client density to compensate for variations in path loss between neighboring access points. In one example, a device (e.g., wireless controller) determines one or more mobile client density variation trends in a wireless network location and determines one or more neighbor message power variation trends between at least first and second access points within the wireless network location over a time period. The device generates one or more correlation bias factors using the mobile client density variation trends and the neighbor message power variation trends over the time period. The device determines a path loss between at least the first and second access points based on the correlation bias factor and data associated with neighbor messages sent between the first and second access points.
