Coverage Hole Radio Profiles

When you create a high density wireless network, particularly with voice and/or iOS/Android devices, you always use a combination of disabling low data rates and lowering the Tx_Max (maximum radio transmit power) to get the roaming performance you require.

However, this system turns to custard when an access point fails. At least one radio commonly has to exceed the defined Tx_Max to cover the hole so you end up with a partially covered hole.

What would be useful is a "coverage hole" radio policy that is only applied when an access point is reacting to a neighbouring access point not being visible to the radio for a set period of time. This would enable an access point to exceed its normal operating Tx_Max upon an access point failure.

Interesting idea, Crowdie, thanks! I will bring this to our radio folks to take under consideration in future releases.
