What is RF pollution in the Performance graphs(T301s)?  If RF value is above 150 or 200 how could it impact to connected clients. Required suggestion to reduce RF value as normal.

Hello Prabakaran,

    Do you run the T301s in Solo/Standalone mode, or is it managed by a ZD or SZ controller?
Please tell me where to find the Performance graph you're discussing and I'll look into it further.
I believe RF Pollution is representative of local Noise Floor, or the level where the AP's PHY can
no longer interpret real client RF signal OFDM headers at Layer1.  To reduce, analyze what is
around your AP that gives off EMF or alternate RF signals, and try to locate your AP as far away
as you can or try to shield your AP from them.

Thx Mr.Michael,

     Actually T301s managed by ZD where we seen RF performance graph,Let us know the normal value of RF pollution and we facing all clients (25 clients) are getting latency ,drop issue.Find snap here.

To determine the normal RF "pollution/interference" is dependent upon your environment.

Do you see similar for APs in different areas?

Can you identify any possible RF interfering devices located near to this AP?  Things like Heating/AC vents,
florescent light ballasts, emergency backup lights, anything mechanical, elevators, other WiFi equipment, etc?
