Question:

How does "Auto Healing" work?

Answer:

"Auto Healing" could automatically detect AP failures and compensate by increasing the wireless coverage of nearby APs.

Scenario: A floor in a campus with six rooms

Each room is covered by an AP. The teachers and students are using tablet computers in class.




Without Auto Healing

Room2 loses wireless service when AP2 fails. The IT staff needs to rush to the classroom and fix the failed AP to recover the wireless service. The class is interrupted.




With Auto Healing

With Auto Healing, the WLAN is scanned periodically. When AP1, AP3 and AP5 find that AP2 is "dead", they will increase their output power to cover the wireless "dead zone".
