Implement 802.11k, 802.11r, and 802.11v


#1

Could you please implement the 802.11k, 802.11r, and 802.11v standards, especially for the AP Controller? These standards would optimize roaming for wireless devices and add value to the Peplink ecosystem.

Thanks for the feature request. These standards are hardware-dependent and can be resource hogs. If we upgrade the internal hardware it would lead to higher prices on our products. As you can imagine, this is a tricky balancing act.

The vast majority of our customers are just fine with letting the client device make the roaming decision.

Thanks!

Do your higher end models not contain sufficiently advanced hardware to accomplish this? It’s disappointing to think that all existing models are not capable of fully supporting the 802.11 spec.
