Chapter 12. Radio Frequency Considerations

This chapter wraps up explaining design considerations related to radio frequency elements that are not covered in other chapters. This includes the following topics:

Frequency band selection

Transmission channel settings

Difficult-to-cover areas

Radio signal interference reduction

Frequency Band Selection

802.11n supports operation in the 2.4-GHz and 5-GHz bands. Each of these bands is in a completely different part of the radio frequency (RF) spectrum. As a result, operation in one band does not interfere at all with the other. This allows the designer to choose one of the bands or both as the basis for an 802.11n deployment. To implement 2.4 GHz, 5 GHz, or both, you must ensure that ...
