channel interference

Hello EE,

I have a cisco wireless controller and cisco APs , I was checking interference devices on APs and I see the AP reported interference and provided a device type with RSSI -81.

What can I do to mitigate this type of situation.

Thank you.

If possible, switch to using 5 GHz For your wireless network(s). However, are you able to use a tool like inSSIDer to get an idea in dBm?

We are on dual band so that is ok. I just want to know how to contain the interference in the controller.

You can use EDRRM to help the AP change channel if it sees interference. -81dBm isn't too bad though if it's on the same channel.
