msm760 + msm430/460 : RRM issues

Hi everyone

 

We're running an MSM760 with 17 APs (MSM 430 & MSM460).  Since several months, wifi users are experiencing tons of network interruptions. (more than 10disconnects a day for some users. Sometimes , they can't even reconnect until I reboot AP's).

 

As our radio environment is very pertubate (lot of others companies in a small area, we'are in the middle of a business district), I have enabled RRM on all my AP's.

 

However, I have noticed a lot of RRM errors in the msm760 system log. I don't know if it is the main cause of my reliability problems, but in all cases, I really don't think it's normal.

 

Exemple:

Is someone has any idea why I have all those RRM errors? 

Thanks you everyone :)

Hi Orbital

 

What FW are you running?

Re: msm760 + msm430/460 : RRM issues

Hi Arimo

 

I'm running FW 6.4.0.0-16925.

Maybe I should upgrade to the latest version, even if didn't see anything about RRM in changelog...

 

Thanks you!

Hi Julien

 

Yeah, you should :-)

 

If you don't have HP 560 APs, I'd recommend 6.4.2.1. 6.5 is not a direct update, it's a separate, independent FW branch. 6.4 is active and under development, and 6.4.2 has been out longer, so it's a mature code. Besides it appears that only 6.5.0.1 is currently available from the website and that's already oudated, current is actually 6.5.1.0.

 

There are 2 enhancments in 6.5.1.0 which you might need: you can now configure RADIUS attributes for groups, and another allows a FW update to occur automatically when an AP is reastarted. If you want to have 6.5.1.0, you will at the moment to contact support.

Re: msm760 + msm430/460 : RRM issues

Did 6.4.2.1 resolve your issue?  I'm seeing a similar issue where radio 1  (5GHz) on the MSM460 APs does not respond to a status report request while radio 2 (2.4GHz) does on 17 of 57 APs with 2 MSM765zl controllers running 6.4.2.0.  The other 40 seem to be responding with both reports.  This is spread across 2 buildings and 7 switches with some in adjacent rooms on the same switch act differently.
