TitleHow to disable the Smart-rf 2.0 Select-Shutdown feature in WiNG 5.9.2.x
Objective
To disable the Smart-rf 2.0 Select-Shutdown feature in WiNG 5.9.2.x, 5.9.3.0
Environment
  • WiNG 5.9.2.0, 5.9.2.1, 5.9.2.2, 5.9.3.0
  • AP75xx
  • AP76xx
  • AP7432
  • AP7533
  • RFS4000
  • NX series controller
  • VX9000
  • SMART RF
  • Select Shutdown
  • Hidden Radio
Procedure
  • This feature is intended for High-density deployment designs focused on 5GHz coverage with the objective of identifying redundant 2.4GHz radios and disabling them, thus reducing the overall CCI (Co-Channel Interference ).
  • From WiNG 5.9.2.0 through 5.9.2.2, Select-shutdown is enabled by default and because of this, we are seeing quite a few deployments where the 2.4GHz radios are hidden and thus may be causing connectivity issues.
  • Per ECRT (WiNG engineering), this feature should be disabled immediately after the upgrade to 5.9.2.x or 5.9.3.0 They are working on having it disabled by default in all future releases. Deployments with high density of 5GHz radios can use this feature but should configure according to site. 
  1. To verify what state the radios are in, you can run the following commands:
#show smart-rf radio on <rf-domain-name>
